Diagnosis and immunomonitoring in management of lymphatic filariasis in an endemic area

, : Diagnosis and immunomonitoring in management of lymphatic filariasis in an endemic area. Journal of Parasitic Diseases 20(1): 35-40

A stick ELISA was used to monitor 27 microfilaraemic patients in an endemic area of Bancroftian filariasis in Maharashtra State, India, for a 10-year period following treatment with diethylcarbamazine for 14 days (75 mg/kg overall) followed by single doses of 6 mg/kg on days 360, 540 and at the end of years 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7. This treatment resulted in the disappearance of microfilariae in all except 2 cases.

In 2007 in Spain 43% of donors were older than 60 years. This produces a worse graft quality and probably a worse survival. Our objective is to analyze the influence of donor age on graft survival. We analyze retrospectively 216 renal consecutive...
