Disease relevance of Schistosomiasis haematobia


High impact information on Schistosomiasis haematobia

  • Thus, enhanced SWAP-driven IL-4 and IL-5 production correlates with immunity to reinfection in adolescents exposed to urinary schistosomiasis [3].
  • Trichlorfon (metrifonate) was given intermittently to 37 schoolboys with urinary schistosomiasis living in a hyperendemic area of the Sudan. Patients were followed up for three years [4].
  • This inverse relationship between degree of infection by S. haematobium and iron status shows a deleterious consequence of urinary schistosomiasis on nutrition and hematopoietic status, which should be considered in the design of nutrition intervention programs [5].
  • Renal function was assessed in 101 schoolchildren with active urinary schistosomiasis by measuring serum creatinine, urate, urea, and B2-microglobulin, urinary B2 microglobulin, and the glomerular filtration rate [6].
  • Further analysis of the data obtained from 190 unselected autopsies at the University of Cairo (Faculty of Medicine) hospitals reinforces our conclusion that a high prevalence of urinary schistosomiasis leads to infection intensity causing severe uropathy and mortality, both directly and by way of complications and sequelae [7].
