African Trypanosomiasis

African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is an insect-borne parasitic disease of humans and other animals. It is caused by protozoa of the species Trypanosoma brucei and almost invariably progresses to death unless treated. Discover the latest research on African trypanosomiasis here.


Amoebiasis, infection by the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica, remains a global health problem, despite the availability of effective treatment. Here is the latest research.


Babesiosis is caused by parasites of the genus babesia, which are transmitted in nature by the bite of an infected tick. Discover the latest research on babesiosis here.

Chagas Disease

Chagas disease, also known as American trypanosomiasis, is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the protist Trypanosoma cruzi. It is spread mostly by insects known as Triatominae, or "kissing bugs". The symptoms change over the course of the infection. In the early stage, symptoms are typically either not present or mild, and may include fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, or local swelling at the site of the bite. After 8–12 weeks, individuals enter the chronic phase of disease and in 60–70% it never produces further symptoms.The other 30–40% of people develop further symptoms 10–30 years after the initial infection, including enlargement of the ventricles of the heart in 20–30%, leading to heart failure. An enlarged esophagus or an enlarged colon may also occur in 10% of people. Discover the latest research on Chagas disease here.


Clonorchiasis is a food foodborne parasitic infection caused by the trematode Clonorchis sinensis and presents as liver disease. Find the latest research on clonorchiasis here.

Crispr In Malaria

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This technology is being investigated to combat malaria by targeting specific stretches of vector DNA and editing the genome at precise locations. Here is the latest research.


Cryptosporidiosis is a self-limited diarrheal disease that occurs in the community setting but can be chronic and potentially serious in immunocompromised patients. Here is the latest research.


Cysticercosis in humans results from infestation with the larval stage of the parasite cysticercus cellulosae of the tapeworm taenia solium. Discover the latest research on cysticercosis here.
