When inoculated subcutaneously, the infective larvae of L. sigmodontis undergo complete development and produce a patent microfilaraemia in mice of the BALB background (BALB/c, BALB/K and BALB/B, with respectively the H-2d, H-2k et H-2b haplotypes). The most susceptible strain is BALB/c with all mice harbouring adult filariae and 47% of mice presenting with(More)
From June 1995 to January 1998, entomological studies carried out in five villages located in the Delta's Saloum have allowed to better understand the contribution of An. melas Theobald (1903) to malaria transmission in mangrove swamp. Among the five villages studied, three of them (Simal, Djilor and Marlothie) located along the Saloum river, are colonised(More)
Effects of ivermectin and moxidectin were compared on two filarial species: Monanema martini which presents dermal microfilariae and induces Onchocerca-like lesions in its natural murid host Lemniscomys striatus, and Litomosoides sigmodontis (= L. carinii). M. martini microfilariae showed an unusual resistance to ivermectin, in vitro and in vivo; moxidectin(More)
A recently reported epidemic of Schistosoma mansoni infection in Senegal provided an opportunity to study the dynamics of the development of immunity to human schistosomiasis. We report here on the cell-mediated immune response in a population of 99 females and 95 males, with particular emphasis on the relationship between intensity of infection and age. We(More)
Reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) for diagnosis of Rift Valley fever (RVF) was evaluated by using 293 human and animal sera sampled during an RVF outbreak in Mauritania in 1998. Results of the RT-PCR diagnostic method were compared with those of virus isolation (VI) and detection of immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies. Our results showed that RT-PCR is a(More)
Histological study of the nasal cavities and upper maxillae of Arvicanthis niloticus naturally infected with Trichosomoides nasalis shows that the female worms reside in the epithelial monolayer of the nasal mucosa of the posterior and median cavities. Eggs laid by T. nasalis were infiltrated between the female body wall and the epithelial lining. Small(More)
Through a cohort of 93 neuroaids which has been diagnosed at Dakar in our Neurology Department, the authors evaluated the hospital prevalence of retrovirus, detected socio-demographic factors, related AIDS outline the mean neurological picture and try to correlate survival and neurological involvement of these patients. Among 1151 patients who got(More)
Because of the apparition of new risk factors and numerous progresses in investigation methods, authors take stock of neurological diseases of patients admitted in Clinique Neurologique of Fann during the last ten years. The 8539 cases repartition is as followed: 4736 males and 3803 female. Their ages ranged between 3 and 80 years with 2130 deaths(More)
The mites, Bdellonyssus bacoti, are engorged on rodents having 800 to 60,000 microfilarie/10 mm3 blood. Quantitation of L. galizai larval development shows that an additional blood meal improves development and that high microfilaremiae do not result in a proportional increase in the number of infective larvae. The first important stage of transmission(More)
Lunotriquetral coalition is a congenital carpal anomaly rarely discovered in a white population. In the black population, most cases have concerned blacks in America, Australia and South Africa. In the Sub-Saharia area, in Senegal, the authors, after 8 incidental cases, report 32 lunotriquetral coalitions collected in 20 patients. This retrospective study(More)
