Increasing Prevalence And Intensity Of Foodborne Clonorchiasis, Hengxian County, China, 1989–2011
Neglected Tropical Diseases
Description:During 1989-2011, three parasitic disease surveys were conducted in Hengxian County, China, where soil-transmitted helminthiases and foodborne clonorchiasis are endemic. We compared the data and found that the prevalence of helminthiases decreased and the prevalence and intensity of clonorchiasis increased over time, especially among men. Clonorchiasis control/intervention measures are urgently needed in this area.
