血吸虫病流行地区的App世界足球赛

niaid支持的App世界足球赛人员还在血吸虫病常见的国家App世界足球赛血吸虫病. Projects concerning the association between schistosomiasis and HIV acquisition and transmission include one in Tanzania in which a preliminary study in 800 women is being expanded to better quantify the association between parasite burden and HIV acquisition and to clarify the roles played by specific immune system cell types in the cervix in enhancing HIV acquisition in women who also have schistosomiasis. 另一位App世界足球赛人员正在使用来自肯尼亚和乌干达大型纵向App世界足球赛的数据来检验几个假设, 包括血吸虫和艾滋病毒合并感染是否会导致新感染艾滋病毒的人病情恶化更快. 

在巴西, niaid支持的一个项目的重点是寻找方法,在血吸虫病传播发生在相对较小和集中的地区的城市地区完全消除寄生虫. 数据对人类, 蜗牛, 这些城市“岛屿”中的寄生虫种群特征和动态将被用来指导消灭工作. 

Another project involving “hot spots” (areas of schistosomiasis persistence and reemergence despite aggressive control measures) is using genomic and longitudinal epidemiological data from long-running studies in China to identify the origins of new infections in hot spots and the relative contributions of human spreaders and movements of people and animal hosts between villages to the emergence of cases. 这些信息将用于微调控制工作,更紧密地集中在即将消除的地区的主要感染源.
