    Strongyloidiasis is a human disease caused by a parasite belonging to a group of soil transmitted helminth. The causative organ for this intestinal infection is Strongyloides stercoralis and S. fuelleborni being the only other species of Strongyloides that infects humans. This species that commonly infects non-human primates can also cause infections in humans (Ashford and Barnish, 1989; Ashford et al., 1992; Zerpa et al., 2014) is thus zoonotic in nature. Furthermore, strongyloidiasis caused by

This product is thought to be susceptible to contamination by infected triatomes and/or faeces, with no regulations or available pathogen inactivation treatment (Broglia, et al., 2011). 5. Strongyloidiasis is caused by soil-transmitted nematode helminth. S.stercoralis is the most prevalent but S.fuelleborni infections occur in Africa and Southeast Asia from contact with their definitive non-human primate hosts. S.stercoralis is arguably the most
