INTRODUCTION Schistosoma haematobium infection afflicts about 150 million people in 53 countries in Africa and the Middle East. In many endemic areas, S. haematobium is sympatric with Schistosoma bovis, Schistosoma mattheei, Schistosoma curassoni, Schistosoma intercalatum and Schistosoma magrebowiei, its closely related species. In addition, they also(More)
Schistosoma haematobium is one of the most prevalent parasitic flatworms, infecting over 112 million people in Africa. However, little is known about the genetic diversity of natural S. haematobium populations from the human host because of the inaccessible location of adult worms in the host. We used 4 microsatellite loci to genotype individually pooled S.(More)
The proximate, elemental and phytochemical compositions of the leaves of Pterocarpus soyauxii (Oha) were studied. The results obtained for the proximate composition showed the following: moisture content (17.2%), ash content (5.7%), crude fibre (17.2%), crude protein (29.5%), crude fat (4.15%) and carbohydrates (25.95%). The results of the mineral(More)
