Epidemiological studies on clonorchiasis in okayama prefecture japan viii. survey on the prevalence rate of clonorchis sinensis infection among residents in the littoral of kojima bay

, : Epidemiological studies on clonorchiasis in okayama prefecture japan viii. survey on the prevalence rate of clonorchis sinensis infection among residents in the littoral of kojima bay. Japanese Journal of Parasitology 35(6): 550-554

In order to confirm the present status of human clonorchiasis in Okayama Prefecture, fecal examination of 4,509 inhabitants (1,726 adults over 15 years old and 2,783 school children aged 7 to 14 years old), and a questionnaire survey on the raw fresh-water fish consumption by 2,428 households have been conducted at 5 locations in the littoral of Kojimi Bay from October 1983 to June 1986. Results obtained are summarized as follows. 1) Although C. sinensis eggs were found in only 5 adults residing in Masazu district and the prevalence rate among the inhabitants were 0.1%, it is confirmed that the C. sinensis carriers still exist in some areas. 2) In the examined areas, about 5% households surveyed are found to eat raw host fishes, especially Carassius auratus and Cyprinus carpio, and none were found eating Gnathopogon elongatus elongatus. Therefore, it is believed that the above 2 fish species must play a significant role in Clonorchis infection.
