CommentAfrican eyeworm.
Major filarial pathogen of humans.
Does not contain the obligate intracellular Wolbachia endosymbiont.
Microfilariae (L1) are acquired by flies from human blood and subsequently develop into infective larvae (L3) before being reintroduced into a human host during a second blood meal.
Purified during a therapeutic apheresis from a patient with loiasis infected in Cameroon.
