 (submitted: March 3, 2011)
Evaluation of local epidemiology of soil-transmitted helminthiases and impact of a mass drug treatment anti-helminthic strategy [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
Evaluate local epidemiology of STH: frequency of species, prevalence and intensity of infections, groups more affected, morbidity. Evaluate the efficacy of a single-dose anti-helminthic regimen for community treatments: albendazole 400 mg + ivermectin 200 mcg/kg.

 (submitted: March 3, 2011)
  • Validate serology methods for diagnosis of S. stercoralis infection [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
    Compare sensibility, specificity and predictive values of serology for S.stercoralis (ELISA-NIE) with traditional coproparasitological methods

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Management of Soil-transmitted Helminthiasis and Strongyloidiasis
Official Title  ICMJE Community-based Approach for the Management of Soil-transmitted Helminthiasis in General and Strongyloidiasis in Particular in a Highly Endemic Area
Brief Summary The general purpose of the project is to analyse soil-transmitted helminthiases (STH) in a highly endemic area in northern Argentina with a multidisciplinary approach. The specific objectives are to evaluate the local epidemiology of STH, validate a new diagnostic serology method for S. stercoralis and evaluate the efficacy and safety of a mass drug administration regimen with albendazole and ivermectin.
