Researchers are actively investigating drug resistance in parasitic organisms such as Plasmodium, Trypanosoma, and helminths to develop strategies for managing and preventing resistance. The development of vaccines against parasitic diseases, including malaria, schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, and Chagas disease, is an ongoing effort.
The session provides an excellent platform for sharing and exchanging ideas concerning the continuous innovation and research efforts in this field. Studies are persistently uncovering the intricate interactions between parasites and their hosts, offering valuable insights into the pathogenesis of parasitic diseases. The focus is also on understanding the life cycles, transmission, and survival strategies of parasitic organisms. Additionally, researchers are studying the host immune response to parasitic infections to devise effective interventions and control strategies.
