Abstract

Abstract

The prevalence of schistosomiasis has been measured by parasitological examination and by fluorescent antibody titering in a number of communities in different parts of Rhodesia. The samples were taken from areas of high, medium, and low transmission of the disease. A correlation was detected between the mean titer and prevalence of infection, particularly in the younger people (4–13 yars old). It is suggested that fluorescent antibody titrating may be a useful epidemiological tool.
