The effect of intestinal flora on the establishment, development and pathogenicity of Ascaris suum larvae in piglets (Large White breed) was investigated. The infected piglets with Ascaris and Escherichia coli showed signs of pneumonia, cough with respiratory difficulties initially even though these moderated with time. They lost appetite and showed signs(More)

Rapid epidemiological mapping of onchocerciasis (REMO) was carried out in Nigeria between 1994 and 1996, to provide accurate estimates of the populations living in high-risk areas for the disease and to identify the communities to be given priority treatment with Mectizan (ivermectin, MSD). The rapid epidemiological assessment (REA) teams which carried out(More)
In about half of 1026 Nigerians infected with Loa loa, the microfilaria levels were low, less than 8% had more than 1000 microfilariae in 50 cumm blood. The length range of 445 microfilariae obtained from 39 infected people was 156.8 to 308.7 micron with a mean of 236.4 micron, or microgram; smaller than in the Kumba strain of Cameroon. The persistence of a(More)
