In the present study, helminthic
infestation was higher than intestinal protozoa.
Nitazoxanide in the treatment of patients with intestinal protozoan and helminthic
infections: a report on 546 patients in Egypt.
In proven iron deficiency, one should--especially in children--consider administration of an anti-helminthic
agent, in conjunction with iron therapy, in view of the high prevalence of co-morbid helminthic
infestation in low-resource settings.
About 25% of the world's population is infected with Ascaris lumbricoides, making this the most common helminthic
infection worldwide .
This high re-infestation rate highlights the fact that that deworming programmes alone cannot control helminthic
disease, (44) and that they need to be sustainable to be successful.
Eosinophilia, as a marker of Th2 cell response, can be used to assess helminthic
infections (Janeway et al.
17) The relationship between MS and helminthic
infection is complex, (see later), and may be immuno-protective.
Studies also documented that helminthic
infections are important causes of iron-deficiency anaemia in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa (22-24) and deworming programmes can improve the iron status and prevent moderate-to-severe anaemia (25-28).
Only 208 participated in the collection of blood and stool samples for determination of iron status, malaria and helminthic
