We are planning a systematic review on diagnostic methods of intestinal protoza
especially Giardia lamblia, dientamoeba fragilis, blastocystis hom. E.
histolitica, cryptosporidium and microsporidium. We are looking for published
and unpublished research in which two or more techniques were compared.
We are lookinf for differend microscopic techniques, staining, fixation,
concentration, but also comparions of microscopic techniques and ELISA's.
The SR will be conducted according the guidelines of the Cochrane Collaboration
in cooperation with Paul Garner form the Liverpool School of Tropical
If you have knowledge of sound research in this field (especially unpublished
reports) please contact me.
