“The eggs of the hookworm Ancylostoma and of schistosoma develop to larvae in the soil and in surface water respectively, after which the larvae penetrate the skin of their victims and enter the blood circulation.”

“Finally, the potential risk to those working in the field depends on the risk behavior of the workers, i.e. protective measures at work such as the wearing of shoes or boots (particularly to protect against hookworms and schistosoma infection), and habits of personal hygiene such as the washing of hands and body.”
“However, ultimately we would need to measure the concentration of elastase that schistosoma releases.”
“However, there are emerging cases of drug-resistant strains of schistosoma.”
