Elliott, Stephen Cose, Denise Whitby, Robert Newton We investigated the impact of helminths and malaria infection on Kaposi’s sarcoma associated herpesvirus (KSHV) seropositivity, using samples and data collected from a cluster-randomised trial of intensive versus standard anthelminthic treatment. The trial was carried out in 2012 to 2016 among f ishing communities on Lake Victoria islands in Uganda. Plasma samples from 2881 participants from two hou...
