Abstract

Fifteen Egyptian subjects infected with Schistosoma mansoni were evaluated parasitologically, clinically, and immunologically; treated with praziquantel; and reevaluated nine months later. Fecal egg counts were 97% lower after therapy; seven subjects no longer excreted eggs, as determined by Kato thick smears. Optimal [3H]thymidine incorporation induced by soluble adult worm antigenic preparation (SWAP) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) increased significantly, from 4, 041 ± 434 (mean change in cpm ± SE) before treatment to 11, 232 ± 3, 414 after treatment (P
