Dear Friends of the Open Learning Web site on Enteric pathogens

A new lecture is available at the new web site


A case-control study of Giardiasis to estimate the impact of a mass gathering

Faustini A. and Marinacci C.
Department of Epidemiology, ASP Lazio, Rome (Italy)

Mass gatherings are believed to increase the transmission of infectious diseases although surveillance systems had shown a low impact among residents. This lecture presents the epidemiological approach we used to evaluate the impact of Catholic jubilee in Rome, in 2000. A concurrent case-control was conducted to study the risk for giardiasis possibly due to an increased transmission from pilgrims to residents during the event.

Ciao Salvatore Rubino
