- Drug: Ivermectin + Albendazole
Ivermectin: 200µg/kg, single dose, PO + Albendazole 200 (children between 12 and 23 months) or 400 mg (>= 2 years old) single dose, PO
- 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.
- 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
- Assess the tolerability and safety of the combination of ivermectin and albendazole [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
