Original title Les parasitoses intestinales chez les travailleurs du service communal de nettoiement de la ville d'Oran [in French]
Bibliographic information 1984, Vol.45, No.4, p.255-257. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Comparative study involving 223 exposed workers and 230 controls. Findings: the prevalence of intestinal parasite infection is significantly higher among the exposed group than among the controls; infection is not significantly related to the nature of the work (sewer workers, loaders, sweepers) or to length of service. Infection rate for each parasite is higher among the exposed workers than among the controls.
