Abstract

To date, reliable techniques that can provide accurate information on the local and global prevalence of schistosomiasis are still associated with high costs or labour-intensive processes. Here we discuss old and new concepts for diagnostic approaches, and we highlight structural properties of schistosome eggshells that result in their affinity for magnetic materials as a new diagnostic approach.
