Excerpt
The following is a summary of investigations on bilharziasis in Israel by the present authors, published in 1957 (Witenberg & Saliternik), and of additional observations made subsequently. The epidemiology of bilharziasis in Israel is constantly changing. During the ten years in which Israel has been an independent State, some half a million immigrants from endemic regions in Asia and Africa have entered the country: about 32% of them from Morocco, 26 % from Iraq, 10 /d from Yemen and 6% from Iran. The epidemiological analysis of Heller (1953) and the immunological tests carried out by Davies & Eliakim (1955) showed the following infection rate in the immigrants: from Yemen 34 %, Iraq 8 %, Iran 6 76. Subsequently 13 % of a group of 700 immigrants from Marrakech (Morocco) proved to be infected with Schisfosonia haematobium.
