  1. Maternal filarial infection as risk factor for infection in children.

    Article - En anglais

    Familial clustering of filarial infection was investigated through random house-to-house surveys of 643 individuals in Leogane, Haiti, an area with endemic Bancroftian filariasis.

    Children of infected mothers were 24 to 29 times more likely to be infected than were those of amicrofilaraemic mothers.

    Filarial-specific cellular responsiveness in amicrofilaraemic children born to infected mothers was lower than that in amicrofilaraemic children born to amicrofilaraemic mothers.

    No effect of paternal infection status was seen.
