Detection of schistosomiasis in rats using micro blood sampling and immunofluorescence during an epidemiologic study



Detection of schistosomiasis in rats using micro blood sampling and immunofluorescence during an epidemiologic study



Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Seances de l'Academie des Sciences. Serie D: Sciences Naturelles 286(1): 141-143



For a study of rat parasitism with Schistosoma mansoni in Guadeloupe, we used a technique of microbloodsampling followed by an immunofluorescence test. This method makes it possible to take the blood of the rats, the latter being then marked and set loose. It informs us of the presence of the parasite, the time of infestation, and the rats' movements relative to waterspots.
