Assessment of the evolution of malaria and intestinal helminthes infections from 1983 to 2014 in the Hevecam agroindustrial complex, south region of Cameroon
Man-made development projects have usually been pointed to significantly influence the epidemiological features of communicable parasitic diseases in sub-Saharan countries as a result of anthropogenic environmental changes. This study aimed to assess the current health status of dwellers of the Hevecam agroindustrial complex established after rainforest deforestation in Southern Cameroon, and to monitor its evolution...
Molecular differentiation of Entamoeba Spp. isolated from Cameroonian human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected and uninfected patient
Entamoeba histolytica is an utmost important cause of dysentery. Entamoeba spp. has been frequently reported in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive individuals. Routine microscopic examination of stool sample is a most widely used technique but microscopy alone has low sensitivity and it is insufficient for differentiation among Entamoeba spp. Molecular techniques are newer methods which are currently used for...
Effect of the larval habitat depth on the fitness of the malaria-vector mosquito, Anopheles gambiae s. s.
This work was carried out with the aim to evaluate the impact of the lodging depth of Anopheles gambiae larvae on life features that characterize the population’s fitness of this significant vector of human malaria. The study noted that depth is a significant factor that can considerably influence dynamics of the A. gambiae populations. Thus, on one hand depth increases the duration of larval stages from 8.16 days...
