Recent work on schistosomes and snails in Kenya



Recent work on schistosomes and snails in Kenya



East African Medical Journal 35: 8, 427-436



In Kenya, using golden hamsters as the laboratory animals, snails were proven infected with Schistosoma haematobium, S. mansoni, S. bovis, S. leiperi and possibly also S. capense. These snails came from four main areas, namely, the coast, a township in a native reserve, near Makuyu in the European settled area (coffee and sisal estates), and near Kisumu on Lake Victoria. Cercariae shed by Physopsis africanus ovoideus were frequently found to be S. bovis.
