A cohort of 117 school children infected with Schistosoma haematobium was followed-up after therapy with praziquantel (0, 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 months) and various infection and morbidity parameters(More)
We evaluated the impact of praziquantel therapy (40 mg/kg body weight) on indicators of infection with Schistosoma haematobium by following a cohort of infected children from schools located 12 km(More)
BACKGROUND In an effort to enhance accuracy of diagnosis of Schistosoma haematobium, this study explores day-to-day variability and diagnostic performance of real-time PCR for detection and(More)
A panel of 17 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against Schistosoma soluble egg antigens (SEAs) was produced from BALB/c mice immunized with antigens secreted/excreted by Schistosoma mansoni eggs. In this(More)
While research on alternative diagnostic and morbidity markers for infection with Schistosoma haematobium has been going on for a long time, egg counts continue to be used as the gold standard, and(More)
A cohort of Schistosoma haematobium infected schoolchildren from Cameroon (n = 146) was studied for urine circulating soluble egg antigen (SEA), in comparison to other urine infection parameters: the(More)
Schistosoma haematobium soluble egg antigen (SEA) secreted in urine can be assayed to determine egg tissue load and hence morbidity in infected individuals. A cohort of 158 infected children aged(More)
