Control of schistosomiasis in Guayama and Arroyo, Puerto Rico



Control of schistosomiasis in Guayama and Arroyo, Puerto Rico



Bulletin of the World Health Organization 42(1): 151-156



In 1953, a programme to control Schistosoma mansoni by controlling Biomphalaria glabrata was started in Guayama and Arroyo, Puerto Rico. Sodium pentachlorophenate was used alone at first, then later an ampullarid predator snail, Marisa cornuarietis, was used for biological control in ponds and reservoirs. In addition, it was learned some years later that some infected persons were treated with stibophen during the period 1954-57.
