Abstract

In contrast to the situations with model organisms and parasitic protozoa, progress with gene manipulation with schistosomes has been delayed by impediments that include our inability to maintain the life cycle in vitro, absence of immortalized cell lines, large genome sizes, unavailabi...read more

Malaria (ASM)

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that affects humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches. Discover the latest research on malaria here,

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.
