Periodic Report - MUSTSCHISTUKEMA (Multi-disciplinary studies of human schistosomiasis in Uganda, Kenya and Mali: new perspectives on morbidity, immunity, treatment and control)

Project ID: 517733
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the periodic report for the MUSTSCHISTUKEMA project whose aim was to contribute to an increased knowledge about the effect of praziquantel on schistosomiasis related morbidity, the mechanisms behind this effect both regarding the regulation of host immune responses as well as the effect on the parasite with the overall aim of improving the strategies for morbidity control. The project covers the impact of the project. It notes that the second level of impact is when research results are transformed into strategies for disease control. A close contact is established with the control programmes and this will facilitate the transformation of the research findings into strategies for control. It is plausible that some of the results generated will change the current policies.
