Human filarial nematodes cause river blindness and lymphatic filariasis, both of which are diseases that produce considerable morbidity. Control of these diseases relies on drug treatments that are ineffective against macrofilariae and are threatened by the development of resistance.

To identify and validate potential new drug targets, we propose a collaborative research strategy utilizing...[Show more]
