Bibliographic information 15 Nov. 1980, Vol.27, No.11, p.577-580. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract The relations between haemoglobin levels and morbidity, and infestation by intestinal parasites, was studied in 189 women engaged in raising oysters and seaweed. Two women surgically operated for uterus myoma, 3 infested by Trichuris, one with nephritis and choliocystitis, and one with choliocystitis, were not included in the tolerance ellipse formulated from the Hb values of 146 women in good health.
