Long-term predictors of recurrent laboratory-confirmed giardiasis: A 10-year national surveillance study Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract During 2002 to 2011, 275 of 6828 children with giardiasis in Israel were reported with recurrent, over 6 months apart, episodes. The only significant multivariable-adjusted risk predictor of a recurrent episode was non-Jewish ethnicity (hazard ratio, 4.61 [95% confidence interval, 3.32–6.40]; P<. 001), also accompanied by significant interaction with lower maternal education.
