Bancroftian filariasis in an isolated hunter-gatherer shifting horticulturist group in Papua New Guinea

, : Bancroftian filariasis in an isolated hunter-gatherer shifting horticulturist group in Papua New Guinea. Bulletin of the World Health Organization 71(1): 55-58

A survey for Wuchereria bancrofti microfilaraemia using membrane filtration was carried out among the Hagahai, a recently contacted Papua New Guinea group of hunter-gatherer shifting horticulturists. Adult men had a significantly higher microfilaraemia rate than women. Children aged > 15 years had significantly fewer infections than adults and the microfilaraemia densities were considerably lower. Two subjects exhibited matutinal microfilarial periodicity, peaking at approximately 06 h 00. The possible reasons for the epidemiological and microfilarial findings are discussed.

In a study on the Serpulina innocens, 2 strains of Serpulina spp. with low virulence were isolated from faecal samples of pigs with diarrhoea. The morphological characteristics of the 2 isolates were similar to that of S. hyodysenteriae. Compariso...

Linkage relations of Lp and Ag serum lipoproteins with 25 polymorphic marker systems are examined in a large kindred of over 100 persons. Lp and ESD [esterase-D] are probably closely linked and so the Lp locus may also be assigned to chromosome 13...
