Nature reviews publication: Global overview of schistosomiasis research and control

While considerable progress has been made to control schistosomiasis, challenges remain as there is no vaccine available and the risk for drug resistance is increasing.

In August 2018, Swiss TPH Director Jürg Utzinger together with other authors published a comprehensive overview on schistosomiasis in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Reviews Disease Primers.

The article provides an authoritative global overview of the epidemiology, control and elimination of the disease and challenges facing the scientific community and disease control managers as they strive towards elimination of this debilitating condition.

This is the first disease “Primer” on schistosomiasis in Nature Reviews Disease Primers, a recent addition to the Nature journal portfolio.
