A proposal to declare neurocysticercosis an international reportable disease.
TLDR
The first step required to solve the problem of neurocysticercosis is to implement appropriate surveillance mechanisms under the responsibility of ministries of health, and compulsory notification has the major advantage of providing accurate quantification of the incidence and prevalence at regional level, thus permitting the rational use of resources in eradication campaigns. Expand
Treatment of human African trypanosomiasis.
TLDR
The challenge presented by human African trypanosomiasis must be taken up by developed countries because it is geographically limited and the absence of a non-toxic treatment that is easily administered, reasonably priced, and effective at every stage of the disease, especially the neurological. Expand
Proposal of diagnostic criteria for human cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis
TLDR
A chart of diagnostic criteria for human cysticercosis is proposed that objectively permit clinicians and health care workers to evaluate clinical, radiological, immunologic, and epidemiologic data of patients. Expand
Treatment perspectives for human African trypanosomiasis
TLDR
A pentamidine analog that offers hope for the replacement of injectable pent amine with an orally administered drug is in the clinical development phase and orally administered eflornithine is also slated for reevaluation. Expand
Seroprevalence of cysticercosis in Bénin.
TLDR
A progressive increase in seroprevalence with increasing age was found and the public health importance of cysticercosis in Bénin was demonstrated. Expand
Epilepsy in the Tropics: I. Epidemiology, Socioeconomic Risk Factors, and Etiology
TLDR
The mandate of the Commission on Tropical Diseases of the International League Against Epilepsy is to advise the ILAE Executive Committee with respect to the various factors that contribute to the high frequency of epilepsy in the tropics. Expand
Estimation of the prevalence of epilepsy in the Benin region of Zinvié using the capture-recapture method.
TLDR
The epilepsy prevalence estimate found by capture-recapture is clearly higher than that found by traditional cross-sectional methods, and could better depict the frequency of epilepsy in Africa. Expand
Japanese encephalitis revisited
TLDR
Prevention constitutes the best defense against Japanese encephalitis and recent progress in the development of live attenuated vaccines has given hope of an effective vaccine, which is both easy to use and inexpensive for large scale programs. Expand
Seroepidemiology of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I/II in Benin (West Africa).
TLDR
It is shown that HTLV-I infection exists in Benin but varies according to regions and increased significantly with age, and a statistical difference between male and female was observed. Expand
Epidemiological study of neuro-cysticercosis in northern Togo (West Africa).
TLDR
In april 1987, an epidemiologic study in Northern Togo was carried out in order to evaluate the prevalence of cysticercosis and epilepsy and investigate possible connections between these two illnesses. Expand
