Gordon, Catherine; Gray, Darren; Gobert, Geoffrey N; McManus, Donald P

Description

Parasitic helminths of humans are a major public health threat, particularly in developing countries. The rapid and reliable diagnosis of helminth infections is central to their control as well as for environmental monitoring and disease surveillance.
