|dc.description.abstract||Background Soiled Transmitted Helminths ( STH ) infection, mainly caused by A. lumbricoides, T. trichiura and hookworm is still mostly found on children in Indonesia. Helminthic infection can effect malnutrition, anemia and growth and development disturbances on children.
On helminthic people not only immunoglobulin is increased but also the eosinophil. Eosinophil attaches to the helminth by Ig G/Ig A and release cathionic protein, MBP and neurotoxin. Mast cell and eosinophil will bind the surface of parasite by Fc?-R, ,Fc?-R, Fc?-R and release toxin.
Helminthic infection initiates increasing level of eosinophil. Pardo et al, 2006, from his study on African imigrant who was suffered from helminthic infection found 27 % is followed by eosinophilia, 16 % among of them were ancylostomiasis and 17,2 % were schistosomiasis.
Purpose of this study is to know percentage of increasing eosinophil level on helminthic infection people in order to know the serve of eosinophil on immunity to helminthic infection.||en_US
