  1. Critical analysis of an epidemetrons model for the assessment of bancroftian filariasis endemicity in some areas in Egypt.

    Article - En anglais

    This study attempted a trial fit of observed epidemiological data in Egypt using the Sasa-WHO-Southgate epidemetrons model to quantify the endemicity and risk of transmission of filariasis.

    The geometric and arithmetic means (GM, AM) were tried in addition to the recommended four epidemetrons of the model, prevalence rate (PR); median microfilaria density (MfD50); and linear regression coefficients (a and b).

    Data were based on microfilaria counts in 20 mm3 finger-prick night blood samples from all individuals 6 years of age and older of both sexes in a cluster of eight filaria-endemic villages.
