Cross-sectional surveys of parasitic infection were performed using the agar plate culture technique (APCT) and modified formalin-ethyl acetate concentration technique (MFECT) to assess the true prevalence of Strongyloides stercoralis relative to other parasites in north-east Thailand. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for diagnosis of S. stercoralis infection was used to estimate the seroprevalence for comparison with coproprevalence. Faecal and serum samples were collected from… CONTINUE READING
