Parasitic nematodes infect nearly half of the world's human population, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. Though filariasis is not fatal, it is the second leading cause of permanent and long-term disability worldwide. Filariasis has a spectrum of disease manifestation and infectivity found among the infected individuals and also goes unnoticed for years.
