The analysis of age-prevalence curves obtained from bilharziasis surveys is not usually carried out to the maximum depth the data allow for. With a view to obtaining greater value from the available information, the author analyses age-prevalence data for three common human schistosomes by Muench's catalytic models. The two-stage model is found the most appropriate. Use of this model assumes constant rates of becoming positive and of becoming negative. Two separate analyses are required, one… CONTINUE READING
