Population genetic structure and hybridization of Schistosomes among schoolchildren in Côte d’Ivoire
Schistosomes ; Hybrids ; Genetic diversity ; Côte d’Ivoire
Schistosomiasis remains a great public health problem in several tropical and subtropical countries. The urogenital form caused by Schistosoma haematobium, whose intermediate host is the freshwater snail Bulinus, is widespread in Africa. The disease leads to haematuria in patients. In Côte d’Ivoire, the parasitic disease prevalence in known foci ranges from 8 to 42.8%. A national mass-treatment program is in place and is implemented by the Ministry of Health following WHO guidelines. This program action allows lowering the prevalence of schistosomiasis. In an effort to eliminate the disease, epidemiological surveys are used to identify rich area for infection. With documented genetic crossing occurring between species, it is important to look for heterogeneity of an infection, which may strongly influence development of new variants of the parasite. Indeed, hybridization of S. haematobium and S. mansoni has been documented from an Ivorian patient presenting at the University Hospital of Perpignan (Jerome Boissier: personal communication). Thus, this study aims to determine the genetic diversity of S. haematobium among school-aged children and to detect S. haematobium hybridization with other schistosome species. The study will include parasitological examination of 400 children from four geographically distinct study sites to determine the S. haematobium the prevalence rate by means of urine sample filtration. Then, 30 miracidia from 30 positive urines samples will be collected onto FTA cards in order to perform genetic analyses. After genomic DNA isolation and Cox 1 and ITS 2 PCR will be used to determine schistosome hybrids. DNA will be genotyped using microsatellite markers to determine the genetic polymorphism in each study site. The results of this study will contribute to the monitoring and implementation of strategies for effective infectious disease control and development in molecular epidemiology, biology and clinical trials.
