Epidemiology and immunopathology of bancroftian filariasis






Microbes and Infection 1(12): 1015-1022

Epidemiology and immunopathology of bancroftian filariasis

Human lymphatic filariasis caused by Wuchereria bancrofti is reviewed with reference to aspects of epidemiology (global prevalence, intensity and efficiency of transmission, infection and disease, host age and sex, diagnostics), immunopathogenesis (classification, cytokine patterns, immunopathogenesis at the site of disease, animal models) and treatment and control (including combination drug therapy). The disease affects 120 million people worldwide. It is considered to be potentially eradicable by the World Health Organization.
