Publication: Mapping lymphatic filariasis in Loa loa endemic health districts naïve for ivermectin mass administration and situated in the forested zone of Cameroon

09 June 2020

This research article is focused on the mapping of lymphatic filariasis (LF) in Loa loa endemic health districts in forest areas of Cameroon. Using parasitological and molecular tools, researchers did not find evidence of Wuchereria bancrofti (the parasitic worm that causes LF) presence in the health districts but did find L. loa instead.
