Kolawole described the ailment as an acute and chronic parasitic disease caused by blood flukes (trematode worms) of the genus Schistosoma
As an avid student of live blood analysis, I was shocked to acknowledge many of the long worm-like structures I had observed for decades in the blood were Schistosoma
and resembled structures of the parasite in online microscopy.
Until recently, this disease was attributed solely to Schistosoma
haematobium, which was considered to have limited zoonotic potential (1).
During the Year, the Group recorded satisfactory revenue of approximately RMB28.7 million (2017: RMB 26.5 million), increase by 8.0%, or RMB2.1 million, compared to the previous year, which was contributed by an increase in the sales of its detection kit for IgG antibody to Schistosoma
japonicum by approximately 394.0% from RMB435,000 in 2017 to RMB2.1 million in 2018, primarily because several new distributors commenced to sell its detection kit for IgG antibody to Schistosoma
japonicum since 2018.
Since studies with eugenol, thymol and linalol have shown that they presented molluscicidal activity against Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus, being these, respectively, intermediate hosts of the parasite Schistosoma
mansoni and Schistosoma
haematobium, transmitter of the schistosomiasis disease (T Sharaf el-Din 2006).
Among 30 refugees with splenomegaly after arrival for whom Schistosoma
immunoglobulin G results were available, 15 (50.0%) had evidence of prior infection; among 13 with both Schistosoma
immunoglobulin G results and an eosinophil count, eight (61.5%) had eosinophilia (Table 2).
The World Health Organization estimated that 207 million people from 76 countries were infected by the various species of Schistosoma
These adult flatworms parasitize blood capillaries of either the mesenteries (Schistosoma
 Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease caused by Schistosoma
IgG to other parasites including Paragonimus westermani , Paragonimiasis sichuanensis , Schistosoma
japonicum , and Spirometra mansoni were all negative.
