Dr. David Gurarie has teamed up with colleagues, Charles H King, MD (Case Medical School) and others, to develop mathematical models and computer tools for prediction and control of schistosomiasis , also known as snail fever. The disease is caused by parasitic worms circulating between human and snail hosts, in complex transmission environment. It produces severe symptoms with long term debilitating chronic conditions, impeded child development, and increased risk for other infections (HIV, malaria, et al). The disease carries heavy socio-economic burden in many countries, and the World Health organization (WHO) has targeted it for control and elimination by year 2020-2030. Dr. King, and Dr. Gurarie’s research focuses on efficient strategies, that combine drug treatment with environmental modification and snail-control. Check out the full article here.
