BACKGROUND In many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, urogenital and intestinal schistosomiasis co-occur, and mixed species infections containing both Schistosoma haematobium and S. mansoni can be common. During co-infection, interactions between these two species are possible, yet the extent to which such interactions influence disease dynamics or the outcome of control efforts remains poorly understood. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Here we analyse epidemiological data from three West African… CONTINUE READING
