Filariasis: problems and challenges

Filariasis: problems and challenges

American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 35(2): 221-233

The review of filariasis research covers the following topics: 1 - Oxygen and filariids, with subsections on culture techniques, in vitro relationships, oxygen and mammalian cells, oxygen and filariid energy relationships, collagen synthesis, ecdysteroid synthesis, oxygen toxicity and carotenoids and vitamin A; 2 - Cobalamins and filariids; 3 - Genetics of the filariases, with subsections on parasite genetics, genetics of vectorial capacity and genetics of the mammalian host.
