Schistosomiasis research and the European Community.
CEC/STD meeting on schistosomiasis research. Noordwijk Leiden NLD, 1993/09/06.
Schistosomiasis research within the framework of the Commission of the European Communities'Science and Technology for Development' (CEC/STD) Programme is targeted at three specific problems :
diagnosis of infection and disease ;
the dynamics of transmission, immunity, and morbidity ;
and the need for improved tools and strategies for control.
Several important advances have been made over the past decade.
Improved methods of diagnosis by detection of circulating antigens are in an advanced stage of development and have already undergone field trials in several epidemiological settings.
