Urinary schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease that exists in all regions of Senegal. It is a major public health issue in this country. This study was carried out to determine the prevalence and intensity of this parasitosis in 12 villages of Niakhar (Fatick, Senegal). A total of 210 schoolchildren, aged 7 to 15 years, were enrolled in this study, and(More)
Schistosoma haematobium is the most widespread schistosome species in Senegal and occurs in several regions of the country especially in the Sudan-Sahelian zone. The aims of the study were i) to determine the freshwater species ii) to ascertain the role of the identified snail species in the transmission of S. haematobium and iii) to study the impact of(More)
We report the main characteristics of 'Bacillus dakarensis' P3515T sp. nov., 'Bacillus sinesaloumensis' P3516T sp. nov., 'Gracilibacillus timonensis' P2481T sp. nov., 'Halobacillus massiliensis' P3554T sp. nov., 'Lentibacillus massiliensis' P3089T sp. nov., 'Oceanobacillus senegalensis' P3587T sp. nov., 'Oceanobacillus timonensis' P3532T sp. nov.,(More)
In Sub-Saharan Africa, urogenital schistosomiasis remains a significant public health problem, causing 150.000 deaths/year with approximately 112 million cases diagnosed. The Niakhar district is a disease hotspot in central Senegal where transmission occurs seasonally with high prevalences. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of annual(More)
We report the isolation of three bacterial strains that could not be identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry screening. 'Gracilibacillus phocaeensis' sp. nov., 'Sediminibacillus massiliensis' sp. nov. and 'Virgibacillus ndiopensis' sp. nov. are halophilic species isolated from salty human stools by(More)
Human schistosomiasis is a significant health problem in Sub-Saharan Africa. In Niakhar, West central Senegal, the transmission of S. haematobium occurs seasonally between July and November. No control measures have been implemented despite high prevalence reported in previous studies. This aim of this study was to i) determine the current prevalence of S.(More)
Snails species belonging to the genus Bulinus (Planorbidae) serve as intermediate host for flukes belonging to the genus Schistosoma (Digenea, Platyhelminthes). Despite its importance in the transmission of these parasites, the evolutionary history of this genus is still obscure. In the present study, we used the partial mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase(More)
