Abstract

Abstract.

Schistosomiasis is a blood parasitic disease caused by trematode parasites of the genus . is one of the main contributors of the disease and 90% of the global burden of schistosomiasis is in Africa. Mass drug administration (MDA) has been implemented to reduce the disease burden in endemic areas. Because of MDA, the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for classical diagnostic tests are reduced. In any disease situation, diagnosis is vital in determining asymptomatic, concurrent, current, new, and reinfection cases to evaluate the efficacy of any control program. We have evaluated the positive infection for from filtered urine samples collected from Zambian school children after MDA using loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) and compared its sensitivity and specificity with polymerase chain reaction (PCR). One hundred eleven urine samples collected from school children aged between 7 and 15 years from Siavonga district in southern Zambia were evaluated by PCR and LAMP for DNA extracted by two different protocols (filter-based versus crude extraction). The infection prevalence was 77% with PCR and almost 94% with mansoni-LAMP. Also, LAMP detected 16% (Qiagen extraction) and 10% (LAMP-Procedure for Ultra Rapid Extraction) more positive infection than PCR. We have demonstrated the efficacy of LAMP in a laboratory setup after MDA. The possible inclusion of LAMP as a field-based point-of-care test for surveillance can provide reliable prevalence of schistosomiasis after MDA and help in determining the efficacy of a control program.
