Biochemical Estimation of Hemoglobin Livel in protozoan Infected and Treated School Children in Gaza strip - Palestine
Two hundred fifty school going children aged (11-17) years old were
examined for intestinal parasites. Forty eight (19.2%) children were infected with
protozoan parasites (Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia intestinalis). Pretreatment
and post-treated blood samples were collected from the same population of the
infected children for the estimation of hemoglobin levels. Hemoglobin was estimated
using Sahli's hemoglobinometer. Giardia infected female children showed statistical
significant difference in the pre and post treatment mean hemoglobin levels. The
higher infection rate of commensally strongly suggests the presence of potentially
infections and a public health problem. This relationship remained after controlling
the range of socio-economic variables. Protozoan infected children were frequently
found to have lower blood hemoglobin concentration than uninfected children, but
this relationship could not be attributed to protozoan infections alone.
