  • Chagas Disease
  • Scientists have come out with a novel diagnostic approach which will assist in the fight against Chagas disease, notorious for being one of the most deadly parasitic diseases in the world. (medindia.net)
  • It's as if the parasite left his own signature in the infected person, which could help to diagnose Chagas disease," Dr. Ndao said. (medindia.net)
  • Entomopathogenic fungi may be a safe and efficient means of controlling Triatoma infestans, the bug that helps spread Chagas disease, according to new research conducted in Argentina. (medindia.net)
  • A new study has revealed that it would be possible to diagnose and treat Chagas disease in children in low-resource settings with the help of a new targeted screening strategy. (medindia.net)
  • intestinal
  • Metagonimiasis is a disease caused by an intestinal trematode, most commonly Metagonimus yokagawai, but sometimes by M. takashii or M. miyatai. (wikipedia.org)

  • treatments
  • During the last five years, John Siekierka , Montclair State chemistry and biochemistry professor and director of the University's Margaret and Herman Sokol Institute for Pharmaceutical Life Sciences, and Sokol Professor of Chemistry David Rotella have received more than $932,000 in grant funding from the Celgene Corporation Division of Global Health to find effective new treatments for the disease.

  • species
  • An additional study examining karyotype data on the three disease-causing agents also supported the nomination of M. miyatai as a separate species. (wikipedia.org)

  • forms
