Complement Fixing Antibody
  • Little complement fixing antibody was detected in convalescent sera but most subjects developed significant rises in hemagglutination inhibiting antibodies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Treatment [ edit ] There is no specific treatment for the disease.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Treatment is entirely symptomatic. Sand flies breed in vegetation within a few hundred feet of human habitations. However, these breeding places are difficult to discover, rendering larvicidal control impractical.[britannica.com]
  • The diseases is endemic in many Middle East countries and it supposed many patients are referred to Medical center, without correct diagnosis and perhaps treatment.[scialert.net]

Prognosis

  • Convalescence may require a few days or several weeks, but the prognosis is always favourable. Treatment is entirely symptomatic. Sand flies breed in vegetation within a few hundred feet of human habitations.[britannica.com]

Prevention

  • Prevention [ edit ] Prevention of sandfly bites, and control of sandflies and their breeding grounds with insecticides are the principal methods for prevention. Mosquito nets may not be sufficient to prevent sandfly bites.[en.wikipedia.org]
