Currently available methods for measuring the intensity of transmission in the lymphatic filariases are all to some extent unsatisfactory. Clinical methods for defining the presence of filarial disease are also less than perfect, and many infected persons remain free of symptoms and signs for very long periods. Incidence rates of microfilaraemia calculated from prevalence rate data are combined with 'entomological inoculation rates' obtained by direct observations of vector landing rates… CONTINUE READING
