    schistosoma mansoni was introduced in the Richard Toll area (Senegal) around 1988, probably due to an-made ecological changes in the Senegal river basin.

    Since 1991, we investigate the community of Ndombo, close to Richard Toll.

    Four random population samples of approximately 400 subjects are surveyed, starting at 8 months intervals.

    Each cohort is examined parasitologically (Kato-Katz), clinically, serologically (circulating antigen and antibody profiles) ; treated with proziquantel 40 mg/kg ; and followed up 6-12 weeks, 1 and 2 after treatment.
