For World NTD Day we highlight how research and technological development are cornerstones to the global effort to eliminate NTDs such as schistosomiasis.
Blocking the Plasmodium life cycle can be achieved through the use of insecticides, or by strategies aimed at preventing the parasite from developing inside its mosquito vector, a multi-step process known as sporogony. But what if both could be done at the same time?
Examining inter-specific competition between ‘filth flies’ – flies whose larvae are found in excrement, decaying vegetable matter, rotting meat or garbage.
Studying malaria in wild populations can be difficult, but repeatedly sampling individuals reveals the costs and consequences of malaria in wild monkeys
A recent study of the P. falciparum chloroquine-resistance transporter points to mechanisms underlying resistance to chloroquine and piperaquine
While the eye worm Oxyspirura petrowi is highly prevalent in northern bobwhite quail, little is known about the life cycle. A recent study investigates.
