“…The KatoKatz thick-smear technique (105) is widely used, as it is costeffective, easy to learn, and not technically difficult and requires limited special resources (33,157). This rapid, simple, and inexpensive method requires 40 to 50 mg of feces and is used widely in community surveys, in field studies, and in the national control program in China to determine the burden of eggs in feces (162,187,228).…”

“…Reliable and sensitive diagnostic procedures are crucial for decisions on individual or community treatment, estimation of prognosis and assessment of morbidity, control measures, and evaluation of chemotherapy of schistosomiasis (Berquist, 1992;Feldmeier and Poggensee, 1993;Rabello, 1997). Microscopic demonstration of the parasite's eggs in faeces or urine remains the most widespread tool to diagnose schistosomiasis, mainly due to its low operational costs (Rabello et al, 2002).…”
