Interventions in Persistent Hot-Spots in Kenya

Will providing enhanced MDA at the community level while achieving treatment coverage of 75% or greater in children (5-17) and adults substantially decrease S. mansoni infection in previously identified persistent hot-spot communities?  

Countries: Kenya
Diseases: Schistosomiasis

Xenomonitoring Surveillance

Is molecular detection of schistosome infection (patent and pre-patent) in snails a useful tool for program managers as prevalence and intensity of infection in people approaches very low levels?

Interventions in Persistent Hot-Spots in Tanzania

How do villages which do not show substantial decreases in the prevalence of schistosomiasis despite repeated, high coverage mass drug administration (persistent hot-spot villages) differ from villages which show substantial decrease in prevalence across various factors (declining prevalence villages)?

Identification of serosurveilance antigens for schistosomiasis

To identify antigens that can be produced as recombinant proteins and to document elimination of schistosomiasis.

To identify antigens that differentiate between infections with Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma haematobium and that can be used in an ELISA, lateral flow assay or multiplex format.

Diseases: Schistosomiasis
