Periodicity of Wuchereria bancrofti var. pacifica filariasis in French Polynesia



Periodicity of Wuchereria bancrofti var. pacifica filariasis in French Polynesia



Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 44(2): 83-85



In 1992, a study on microfilaraemia periodicity was carried out on 12 Wuchereria bancrofti carriers in the Marquesas Islands. Blood samples were collected simultaneously every 4 h during a 48 h period by finger-prick and venipuncture for determination of microfilaraemia by both blood film and membrane filtration technique methods, and for determination of antigenaemia.
