This video seminar describes research to develop a low-cost, field-based test to detect several slow-clearing ACT drug compounds from unprocessed fingerstick blood samples, presented by Erin Coonahan, an NIH-Oxford DPhil scholar.
Watch this video about suppporting the fight against malaria drug resistance. "Malaria, until the turn of the century, was really a disaster," begins Professor Kevin Marsh from the University of Oxford, in this video produced in partnership with the by Exxon Mobil Foundation. The video describes the global threat of antimalarial drug resistance and the work WWARN is doing to combat it.
Anders Björkman is Professor of Infectious Disease at the Karolinska Institute. Anders talks about how his collaboration with WWARN is based on sharing field data with the Network in order to develop broader studies to answer specific questions about factors affecting drug efficacy.
In the video below, Anders talks about how the efficacy of antimalarials is a major obstacle in the path towards full malaria elimination. He feels that WWARN is in a strong position to participate in this endeavour.
This article was published on the WWARN site. Please visit the site to learn more about their work.
Watch the video below to find out more about how WWARN, who have a site on the network, are collaborating to combat malaria.
In tihs video, Prof Ric Price, Head of the WWARN Clinical Module, gives a brief overview of the emergence and spread of drug resistant P. vivax malaria and why it is important for us to use a different strategy when trying to understand this malaria parasite.
