Read our overview of the DeWorm3 project, from partners including +Natural History Museum, +UW (University of Washington) and +Imperial College London, which aims to test the feasibility of interrupting soil-transmitted helminth transmission. http://bit.ly/2sNYzLm

Hi fellow people concerned about NTDs!

I thought you may like to read our new research paper about using RNA in venom (instead of the venom gland) to study the composition of venom. As well as a possible impact on next-generation snakebite (the most neglected of neglected tropical disease) therapy design, it also has both ethical, conservation and field work implications. If you like it, please consider retweeting or sharing.

Keep up the good work.

A Study on ‪#‎BioEfficacy‬ and Acceptability of ‪#‎Llins‬
----------------------------------------------------------------
‪#‎Malaria‬ causes a lot of ‪#‎morbidty‬ and ‪#‎mortality‬ each year, esp. among troops operating in ‪#‎uncongenial‬ malarial
areas. Personal ‪#‎protection‬ by use of ‪#‎bednets‬ is one of the main methods of protection against the ‪#‎Anopheles‬ and
other species of ‪#‎mosquitoes‬, besides the ‪#‎antilarval‬ and ‪#‎antiadult‬ ‪#‎sprays‬. View more at: http://www.omicsonline.com/open-access/a-study-on-bioefficacy-and-acceptability-of-llins-amongst-soldiers-postedin-a-malarious-area-.pdf
