Pediatric Praziquantel Consortium joining the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (ASTMH)

The Pediatric Praziquantel Consortium continues to engage in dialogue with the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) community and fostering awareness on the Pediatric PZQ formulation program.

The ASTMH Annual Conference (Nov. 5-9, 2017 in Baltimore, US) represents a great opportunity to meet with key stakeholders as the Meeting brings together tropical medicine and global health professionals from different sectors (academia, NGOs, government, healthcare providers, pharma industries).

This year, the Consortium partners (including SCI and Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany) will participate at the Meeting and will be available to share about the progress of the clinical development program.

Consortium members will also play a role at the closed COR-NTD (Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases) Annual Meeting (Nov. 3-4, 2017 in Baltimore, US) which will review the synergies within the operational research arena for NTDs.

Please consult the ASTMH website for additional details on the program.
