Parasitic Nematode Project

Studies to help develop parasitic nematode control programs

Parasitic roundworms (nematodes) of humans, livestock and other animals cause diseases of major socio-economic importance globally. They have a major, long-term impact (directly and indirectly) on human health and cause substantial suffering, particularly in children. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 2.9 billion people are infected with nematodes. Furthermore, the current financial losses caused by parasites to agriculture worldwide (domesticated animals and crops) have a major impact on farm profitability and exacerbate the global food shortage. Methods available for the control of the parasitic nematode infections are mainly based on chemical treatment (anthelmintics), non-chemical management practices, immune modulation and biological control.
