Improved diagnostics for helminth NTDs

DOLF researchers are not only performing clinical trials, large community trials and other epidemiological and intervention studies on helminths in the field they run also state of the art molecular helminthology laboratories and have access to core facilities for genome sequencing, proteomics and molecular imaging. Within the DOLF project, the team identified problems of currently used diagnostic tools and performed various studies to help to develop, evaluate and improve diagnostic methods for helminth parasites. The studies include:
