    Article - En anglais


    A seroprevalence study of cysticercosis, Trypanosoma cruzi, and plasmodia species and screening for active malaria was conducted among a randomly selected group of 138 Hispanic and Haitian migrant farmworkers.

    A random sample of labor camps in eastern North Carolina was selected.

    Blood samples were test by Indirect Fluorescent Antibody techniques for plasmodial antibody and by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for cysticerci and T. cruzi antibodies.

    Questionnaires collected demographic data and medical history of the workers and family.
