Sera of 1292 persons were examined for their antibodies to onchocercal antigen. The results were correlated with epidemiological data and microfilarial rates. They show that demonstration of antibodies is suitable for epidermiological studies although the frequency of antibodies does not increase in that degree like age and endemicity.
