Example text

Lumbricoides infections amounted to at least 100 million in Africa; 90 million in Latin America; 640 million in Asia, out of which 335 million were in China; 6 million in AustraliaOceania; 32 million in Europe; and 20 million in the USSR, of which 13 million were in European and 7 million were in Asian republics. The grand total of the infected persons probably exceeded 980 million. lumbricoides in humans reach astonishing figures: 5,340 million Ascaris worms, with a weight of 36,075 tonnes, corresponding to 600,000 adults.

In the Netherlands, control by freezing the herrings at -20°C has been very successful. In Japan, control is more difficult, since many species of fish are eaten raw and more people have the habit of eating raw fish. III. Ascaris lumhricoides Ascaris or roundworm infection is one of the most common and most widespread helminthic infections in man. 1. lumbricoides is cosmopolitan in its distribution. lumbricoides flourishes. Ascariasis is believed to occur in 25%-30% of the world's population. In countries with a low national prevalence of ascariasis, hyperendemic areas may occur with very high prevalences.

Basically, the concept of the control program was the same as that of the German control program: 1. Control by mass treatment 2. Control by the construction of sanitary facilities for safe disposal of human feces 3. Health education Control by means of mass chemotherapy does not interfere strongly with transmission. As early as 1922 the Rockefeller Foundation made it clear that the objective of mass chemotherapy was not the elimination of all the hookworms in infected people (eradication), but considerable reduction of the worm loads and thereby a strong reduction of the severity of the clinical symptoms.
