  1. Monofilament nylon filters for preventing dracunculiasis: durability and copepod retention after long term field use in Pakistan.

    Article - En anglais

    In early 1987, monofilament nylon filters with 200 mum pore size were distributed to households in selected guinea worm-infected villages in Pakistan.

    Considering the ease of use, popularity and effective filtration of potentially infective copepods following prolonged field use, we recommend that monofilament filters be considered in any program of guinea worm elimination.
