The prevalences of Wuchereria bancrofti antigenaemia in communities given six rounds of treatment with diethylcarbamazine, ivermectin or placebo tablets



The prevalences of Wuchereria bancrofti antigenaemia in communities given six rounds of treatment with diethylcarbamazine, ivermectin or placebo tablets



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 97(7): 737-741



The ICT filariasis card test was used to determine the prevalences of Wuchereria bancrofti antigenaemia among villagers in India. Prior to the tests, those living in the 15 study villages had been treated six times, in six rounds of mass treatment (with 54%-75% coverage) spread over 6 years, with single doses of diethylcarbamazine (five villages), ivermectin (five villages) or placebo (five villages).
