Onchocerciasis is a severe parasitic infestation which causes disabling skin and subcutaneous tissue changes. Current global estimates suggest that it accounts for 1135.7 disability adjusted life years (DALYs) per 100,000 population. The disease is endemic in many African countries including Cameroon, probably suggesting that the current health policies are inadequate to achieve eradication of the disease. We aimed to appraise the current Onchocerciasis control program in Cameroon in the context of existing literature. We carried out a MEDLINE search via PubMed to source for articles on Onchocerciasis in Cameroon. Our appraisal of the literature suggests that Onchocerciasis poses a significant health and economic burden in Cameroon. A composite of factors contribute to the challenge of containing and eradicating Onchocerciasis in Cameroon and include: continuous transmission of the disease; non-compliance to mass drug administration; inability of health care providers (HCPs) to adequately diagnose the
The neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of 17 lesser known chronic infections which predominantly affect poor and disenfranchised communities. There are a number of NTDs that cause significant global morbidity in children, including the three major soil transmitted helminth (STH) infections (ascariasis, trichuriasis and hookworm infection), schistosomiasis and trachoma. These NTDs, together with lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis, are currently being targeted for global control and elimination through mass drug administration (MDA) campaigns. They represent the most common NTDs and share significant geographical overlap. Additionally, many individuals are polyparasitised with more than a single NTD. Integrated NTD control and elimination MDA programmes offer safe and efficacious treatments for all seven NTDs. However, the current global level of MDA coverage for the leading childhood NTDs, that is, STH infections, schistosomiasis and trachoma, remains well under 50%. Limiting ...
Peter J. Hotez, co-editor in chief of PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. New information based on data released by the World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that practically everyone infected with a major neglected tropical disease (NTD) lives in a Christian-, Muslim-, or Hindu-majority nation. The finding has implications for engaging religious leaders in NTD control and elimination activities. … Linking NTDs to religion has potential importance because it invites prominent international religious leaders to have a greater role in advocating for and supporting NTD control. … At the local level, religious leaders in churches, mosques, and temples could have important roles in raising awareness about NTDs and their health impact and could even promote indigenous control and elimination efforts. Finally, there remains the interfaith opportunity to bring these three great religions together in order to cooperate on reducing the global burden of NTDs. NTD control and elimination represents ...
There are preliminary indications that there now is an increased interest in NTDs. The use of the term neglected tropical disease has, across both databases, risen monotonically since 2004 (the first item we found on the topic was an editorial by Holland in 1991 [11], which appeared in the Web of Science). The number of records mentioning neglected tropical diseases has risen from one in PubMed and four in the Web of Science in 2005 to 32 and 69, respectively, in 2008. This increase is mostly due to articles published in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases. An increase in internet queries on NTDs was observed as well. In 2004, matched diseases were queried 3.3 times as often as NTDs. In the first half of 2009 this ratio dropped to 1.8.. Moreover, the ratio between the number of publications of the two groups of diseases reached its peak in 2003-2004. Since then, the ratio seems to be falling. This finding is in concordance with the recent increase in research effort targeted at drug development ...

The neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are the most common conditions affecting the poorest 500 million people living in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and together produce a burden of disease that may be equivalent to up to one-half of SSAs malaria disease burden and more than double that caused by tuberculosis. Approximately 85% of the NTD disease burden results from helminth infections. Hookworm infection occurs in almost half of SSAs poorest people, including 40-50 million school-aged children and 7 million pregnant women in whom it is a leading cause of anemia. Schistosomiasis is the second most prevalent NTD after hookworm (192 million cases), accounting for 93% of the worlds number of cases and possibly associated with increased horizontal transmission of HIV/AIDS. Lymphatic filariasis (46-51 million cases) and onchocerciasis (37 million cases) are also widespread in SSA, each disease representing a significant cause of disability and reduction in the regions agricultural productivity. There is a

In a press release dated April 2, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced that it had partnered with the World Bank, the Childrens Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and a number of other groups to fight neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).. NTDs are parasitic and bacterial types of infections that affect one in every six people worldwide. These infections not only cause a person to become ill, but can also disable or disfigure a person who has been infected. The infections are also more commonly found in poorer populations because they lack a great deal of proper health care services and preventative measures.. In 2012, the London Declaration brought together 13 pharmaceutical companies as well as a number of global health organizations, private organizations and other donors to help fight NTDs. These pharmaceutical companies donated medications to fight 10 diseases: river blindness, Guinea worm, leprosy, lymphatic filariasis, blinding trachoma, schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted ...

New drugs are generally slow (more than 10 years) and expensive (more than $1 Billion) to discover and develop. Consequently tropical diseases, malaria, schistosomiasis, Chagas disease, etc., which kill millions of people and infect hundreds of millions of others are neglected [1,2]; and orphan diseases with few sufferers remain untreatable [3]. More generally, the pharmaceutical industry is struggling to cope with spiralling drug discovery and development costs [4].. The most important steps in early stage drug design are shown in figure 1 [5]. A key initial step is to develop an assay. This is a wet (biological/chemical) or dry (computational) experiment that estimates whether a small molecule (compound) is likely to treat a disease. This assay should be relatively cheap and fast to execute as it will be run multiple times. A compound that passes the assay is called a hit. The next step is to run a drug screen, where a library (set) of compounds is tested against the assay. This ...

NTDs are not simply neglected in terms of awareness and resource allocation but also in the sense that they affect some of the most neglected communities on the planet - those at the end of the road, those for whom fresh water and hygiene are challenging and those whose access to the health care is limited.. In fact, diseases such as river blindness, elephantiasis, trachoma, bilharzia, and various types of worms are so closely linked with poverty that they can be used as effective indicators to gauge the success of health systems in terms of equity.. Last month, I joined a panel in Washington D.C. to discuss the launch of a new report, The Economic Case for Neglected Tropical Disease Control and Elimination [1]from the Hudson Institute and the Global Network for NTDs. The report cites investment in NTDs-which include onchocerciasis (river blindness), elephantiasis (filarial) as one of the best buys in public health, offering a highly cost-effective intervention with far-reaching macroeconomic ...
Tropical diseases directly affect more than one billion people in the developing world each year [1]. Neglected Tropical Diseases, or NTDs, are defined as chronic, debilitating infections that are especially endemic in regions of severe poverty and poor sanitation, and for which treatments and preventions remain largely overlooked [1]. Conditions such as chagas, dengue, lymphatic filariasis, and schistosomiasis represent a small fraction of such infections, yet they account for millions of afflictions each year [2]. Despite the staggering statistics, however, few effective treatments have been made available to plagued populations. Largely found in tropical communities with unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation, and substandard housing, these populations remain socially and medically marginalized on a global scale [1]. In fact, each year only a small fraction of medicines introduced to market by multinational pharmaceutical companies are specifically intended for treatment of tropical diseases ...
Approximately 1 billion people - one sixth of the worlds population - suffer from one or more neglected tropical diseases. The World Health Organization has defined Neglected Tropical Diseases as diseases that affect a majority of the developing world but have been underfunded in terms of research and product development dollars. They include (among others): Buruli ulcer, Chagas disease, Cholera, Dengue, Dracunculensis, Leishmaniasis, Onchocerciasis, Schistosomiasis, and Trachoma. Genomes for many of these pathogens are becoming available due to research efforts worldwide, and so the iCubed is collaborating with researchers to identify new epitopes and design vaccines using the CCHI funded iVAX toolkit. The iCubed runs a training session per year - following these training sessions, NTD researchers can gain access to a dedicated website containing their genomes of choice for their own epitope-mapping use.. ...

Soil-transmitted helminthiasis is one of 17 neglected tropical diseases, a grouping that also includes dengue and chikungunya, rabies, and leprosy. These infectious diseases largely affect the worlds most impoverished people, causing a high human and economic toll through chronic disability.. As their name suggests, they have historically received little global interest or research funding when compared to the big three diseases on the global health agenda: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.. The good news is that neglected tropical diseases have been rising to prominence since the 2012 London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases. This large public-private partnership is committed to eliminating or controlling ten preventable neglected tropical diseases by 2020, and has attracted substantial investment from government and philanthropic sources.. ...
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are communicable diseases common in subtropical and tropical countries that cause a substantial disease burden due to high morbidity rates. Across the world, over 1 billion people live in at-risk areas 1. Although NTDs are most commonly found in developing countries, developed countries also report NTDs, most frequently associated with travel to an endemic region. In the U.S., the State of Texas could have a high potential public health burden associated with NTDs due to its high poverty rate, large immigrant population, geographic proximity to endemic areas, and a climate amenable to vector life cycles, where applicable 2.. Over the past 10 years, Texas has seen the emergence of several vector-borne viral and parasitic diseases; of these: three are of major public health concern. Dengue fever is caused by five virus serotypes that are spread by mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are infected when they bite a person with dengue virus in their blood and transmit virus after ...

A new report by Uniting to Combat NTDs highlights dramatic health and economic benefits from investing in combating neglected tropical diseases, making it one of the best buys in development. The report finds that countries are increasingly taking ownership of NTD programs, have started providing new funding and are pursuing innovative approaches to combat these devastating diseases. Yet, further scale-up is necessary to reach the World Health Organization 2020 targets.
Inside an air-conditioned hearing with the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, climate skeptics argued temperature statistics with scientists.. Dr. Jonathan Fielding, head of L.A. Countys health department, told senators that when he sees a threat, its his job to be prepared to respond. He says hes concerned that climate change is leading to warming temperatures, and that they in turn are providing a habitat for vectors (insects particularly) that werent here before. Vectors are any organism that doesnt necessarily cause disease, but can transmit infection by carrying pathogens from one host to another.. He identified two tropical diseases: dengue fever, carried by mosquitos, and Chagas disease, spread by the blood-sucking kissing bug. Fielding said they arent a threat to California - yet.. But I wouldnt be surprised to see those problems emerge in the next few years, he adds.. Fielding says dengue isnt deadly, but the high fever and joint pain may make you wish you were ...
Tropical fevers have been a diagnostic challenge from the antiquity. Nowadays, despite the availability of good diagnostic capacities, undifferentiated febrile illnesses continue to be a thorny problem for travel physicians. In developing countries, the scarcity of skilled personnel and adequate laboratory facilities makes the differential diagnosis of fevers even more complex. Health care workers must often rely on syndrome-oriented empirical approaches to treatment and might overestimate or underestimate the likelihood of certain diseases. For instance Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) contribute substantially to the burden of persistent (more than 1 week) fevers in the Tropics, causing considerable mortality and major disability. These diseases are however rarely diagnosed at primary health care (PHC) level. The difficulty in establishing the cause of febrile illnesses has resulted in omission or delays in treatment, irrational prescriptions with polytherapy, increasing cost and development ...

Comparing paper data collection with the multiple methods of electronic data collection, proprietary software, open software, or in an aggregate database, all methods have benefits and drawbacks (Table 1). Many people still prefer to collect data via paper and pen, as it easily allows for additional notes and observations and the process is only as complicated as the data that needs to be recorded.
