In the interval between these studies at Moore General Hospital and the present, numerous techniques have been introduced which were designed to increase the probability of detecting eggs of schistosomes. These methods are critically evaluated in a recent review by Stoll (37). In follow-up studies of schistosomiasis japonica in veterans and prisoners of war subsequently to be reported we have carried out most of these techniques. The method we now use is a combination of alcohol sedimentation, (38) hatching, and treatment of the alcohol sediment with ether, hydrochloric acid, sodium sulfate and Triton NE. (39).
