Paying for Worms

Peter J. Hotez and colleagues discuss how, although approximately one-half of the global disease burden due to the major helminthic infections occurs among the poor living in rich economies, almost all of the public support for helminth control and research and development comes out of the United States and Europe. Financial support for helminth R&D and MDA could become an important theme for future G20 summits.

Integrated Control and Management of Neglected Tropical Skin Diseases

Oriol Mitjà and colleagues aim to provide specific pragmatic information and actual recommendations about potential surveillance and management approaches. Their paper stems from a symposium at the 2015 ASTMH meeting where a discussion was initiated regarding opportunities around integration of surveillance and control of NTDs that affect the skin.

Defining Seropositivity Thresholds for Use in Trachoma Elimination Studies

Stephanie J. Migchelsen and colleagues propose that - from their findings - future serological analyses in trachoma use a finite mixture model or expectation-maximisation algorithm as a means of setting the threshold for ELISA data. This will facilitate standardisation and harmonisation between studies and eliminate the need to establish and maintain a global calibration standard.
