Onkanga IO, Mwinzi PN, Muchiri G, Andiego K, Omedo M, Karanja DM, Wiegand RE, Secor WE, Montgomery SP - Int. J. Parasitol. (2016)

Bottom Line: After two rounds of treatment, S. mansoni prevalence and intensity levels significantly declined in both treatment approaches.Prevalence comparisons between the two approaches did not show any significant differences following treatment.Nevertheless, significant reductions in S. mansoni infection prevalence and intensity levels were achieved among school-age children regardless of the treatment approach used.
