Objective To compare the performance of two novel recombinant antigens (EgP29, 2B2t) with imaging in a well-defined cohort of surgically treated cystic echinococcosis (CE) patients to determine whether serology reflects surgical cure as defined by imaging.

Objective and Method We developed and evaluated five novel real-time RT-PCR assays targeting conserved regions in the 5’-untranslated region (5’-UTR), envelope (E’), non-structural protein 2A (NS2A), NS5, and 3’-UTR of the ZIKV genome.
Objectives To describe and correlate placental characteristics from pregnancies in HIV-infected and HIV-negative women with maternal and infant clinical and immunological data.
Global eradication of the Guinea worm (Dracunculus medinensis) is near, although perhaps delayed a little by the discovery of a transmission cycle in dogs.
Objective The most common form of transmitting human brucellosis is through contaminated food or direct contact with infected animals.
Objective To identify sociodemographic, knowledge, and attitudinal correlates to antibiotic-sharing among a community-based sample of adults (age 18 and older) in a low-income setting of the Philippines and to explore community-level data on informal antibiotic distribution in roadside stands (i.e., sari-sari stands).
Objective To present the current knowledge on physical function, grip strength and frailty in HIV-infected patients living in sub-Saharan Africa, where the phenomenon is largely underestimated.
Objective To determine the prevalence and risk factors of scub typhus in Tamil Nadu, South India.
Objective To assess the susceptibility status of malaria vectors to pyrethroids and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), characterize the mechanisms underlying resistance, and to evaluate the role of agro-chemical use in resistance selection among malaria vectors in Sengerema agro ecosystem zone, Tanzania.
Objective To determine the frequency and concentration of E.
Objectives To investigate the molecular epidemiology of Entamoeba histolytica, E.
Objective To determine the therapeutic efficacy of artesunate + sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine (AS + SP) and artemether + lumefantrine (AL), and to investigate the presence of molecular mutations associated with resistance, to inform national malaria treatment policy.
Objective Dengue virus consists of four antigenically distinct serotypes (DENV 1-4) that are transmitted to humans by Aedes aegypti and Ae.
Objectives As neonatal care is being scaled up in economically poor settings, there is a need to know more on post-hospital discharge and longer-term outcomes.
