Abstract

Summary

In this study, over one-half of the specimens of stool submitted by South Vietnamese labor applicants were positive for intestinal nematodes. Nearly all positive specimens contained eggs of either or hookworm. The comparatively low prevalence of may be due to the relatively low numbers and resistance of its eggs or to the little moisture in the soil during part of the study. Multiple infections with nematodes were not rare. It is suggested that a significant portion of the adult South Vietnamese population harbors, in a relatively asymptomatic manner, enteric nematodes in a balanced hostparasite relation.
