The prevalence of toxocara eggs in the sand in childrens playgrounds in frankfurt am main west germany

, : The prevalence of toxocara eggs in the sand in childrens playgrounds in frankfurt am main west germany. Annals of Tropical Medicine & Parasitology 78(6): 633-636

During an investigation of 31 sandpits in children's playgrounds in and around Frankfurt/Main [West Germany]. Toxocara eggs were detected in 27. The prevalence in areas with few or no parks average 14.8 eggs 100/g sand was much higher than in districts where there was more room for the dogs to run about 5.3 eggs/100 g sand. Larval development was complete in 40% of isolated Toxocara eggs after 4 wk. The importance of these findings in connection with the risk, to children playing, of a possible infection larva migrans visceralis and preventive measures are discussed.

Granger causality (GC) is used in the econometrics literature to identify the presence of one- and two-way coupling between terms in noisy multivariate dynamical systems. Here we test for the presence of GC to identify a soil moisture (S) feedback...
