  1. 1. Accelerating the discovery of drugs for Neglected Tropical Diseases using biophysical methods

    Författare :Giulia Opassi; Helena Danielson; Jenny Sandmark; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neglected Tropical Diseases; Drug Discovery; Biochemistry; Biophysics; Kinetic; Fragment Based Lead Discovery; Assay Development;

    Sammanfattning : Even though they account for 10% of the global disease burden and besides the new record of funding in 2018, tropical diseases are still neglected by the majority of pharmaceutical companies and public funding. The reason can be mostly found in the fact that for these diseases a conventional drug discovery process is often too expensive. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background: Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL), is the most common form of a group of diseases known as leishmaniases. They are caused by obligatory intracellular protozoa from the genus Leishmania and transmitted by sandflies. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Control or elimination : terms for public health interventions against tungiasis and schistosomiasis haematobium

    Sammanfattning : The thesis revolves around diagnosis and treatment of tungiasis (sand flea disease) and schistosomiasis haematobium. The causing parasites, Tunga penetrans and Schistosoma haematobium, both have the ability to penetrate intact skin. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Chemosensation in Aedes aegypti: from molecular response profiles to host-seeking behaviour

    Författare :Anaïs Tallon; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The female mosquito Aedes aegypti is the primary urban vector of various highly infectious neglected tropical diseases. Disease transmission relies heavily on odourmediated behaviours, including e.g., sugar- and host-seeking, which are crucial during the mosquito life cycle and has dire impacts on vectorial capacity.

  5. 5. Prevention of cervical cancer in rural Laos

    Författare :Keokedthong Phongsavan; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background: Cervical cancer has a major impact on the lives of women worldwide, but particularly those in low-income countries. The disease can, however, be prevented by a variety of screening methods aiming to detect pre-cancerous lesions that can be treated. LÄS MER
