In order to better understand the epidemiology of Human and Animal trypanosomiasis that occur together in sleeping sickness foci, a study of prevalences of animal parasites (Trypanosoma vivax, T. congolense "forest type", and T. simiae) infections was conducted on domestic animals to complete the previous work carried on T. brucei gambiense prevalence using(More)
INTRODUCTION Food-borne diseases associated with Campylobacter, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella are mainly caused by the consumption of raw or undercooked poultry meat. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of Campylobacter, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella in chickens. METHODOLOGY One hundred and fifty chickens collected from eight(More)
BACKGROUND Highland areas of Africa are mostly malaria hypoendemic, due to climate which is not appropriate for anophelines development and their reproductive fitness. In view of designing a malaria control strategy in Western Cameroon highlands, baseline data on anopheline species bionomics were collected. METHODS Longitudinal entomological surveys were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine and compare antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of pathogenic bacteria from inpatients and outpatients at a university teaching hospital in Yaounde, Cameroon. METHODS Gram-negative bacilli isolates (n = 522), obtained from a wide range of clinical specimens (urine, pus and blood) from inpatients and outpatients at Yaounde Central(More)
In Cameroon, malaria stands as one of the major public health problems. The warm tropical climate of Cameroon and the dense forest and grassland vegetation provide conditions that are favourable for reproduction and survival of the malaria vector, and the consequent increase in the prevalence of malaria. Urban malaria is seriously on the rise. Urban(More)
Organisms of the genera Cryptosporidium and Giardia are enteric parasites that are responsible for cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis respectively. They are characterised by profuse diarrhoea, abdominal pain and cramping. The symptoms can be fatal for immunodepressed subjects and children because these are opportunistic pathogens. These pathogenic infections(More)
This study analyses the basic reproductive biology of the schistosonie-vector snail Bulinus forskalli. This hermaphroditic species can self-fertilize. Variation of the mating system was analysed in two populations from Cameroon in a three-step experiment. (i) The fecundity (number of eggs and of egg capsules) of isolated virgin individuals from both(More)
In this microcosm study, we focused on the effect of a combined application of copper and mefenoxam on the functional diversity of soil microbial communities. Treatments with combined and separate applications of copper and mefenoxam were sampled at 24 and 60 days and control soil was sampled at 0, 24 and 60 days. Structural and metabolic profiling of(More)
The green alga, Scenedesmus subspicatus was exposed for 7 days to a series of PAHs (polyaromatic hydrocarbons) of increased molecular weight from two to five rings [naphthalene (Nap), anthracene (Ant), phenanthrene (Phe), pyrene (Pyr) and benzo(a)pyrene (BaP)]. The toxicity measured as population growth inhibition by individual PAH to the S. subspicatus(More)
