AbstractOver one billion people worldwide are infected with soil-transmitted helminths (STH). STH infections (Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, hookworm and Strongyloides stercoralis) can contribute to anaemia, malnutrition, and delayed cognitive development among others. Currently, the cornerstone for controlling STH is mass drug administration (MDA) programs with benzimidazole drugs, albendazole or mebendazole. However, some studies start to suspect of benzimidazole-resistance, already observed in veterinary medicine in high rates.
