    Impact of the scale-up of piped water on urogenital schistosomiasis infection in rural South Africa

    Frank Tanser et al.
    Scale-up of safe water supplies decreases a child's risk of urogenital schistosomiasis infection by eight-fold in a typical rural African population.

    Antagonism between parasites within snail hosts impacts the transmission of human schistosomiasis

    Martina R Laidemitt et al.
    Interactions among parasites in snails create cascading effects on their transmission and highlight that biodiversity has complex, context-dependent and important effects on human schistosomiasis transmission dynamics.

    Impact of community piped water coverage on re-infection with urogenital schistosomiasis in rural South Africa

    Polycarp Mogeni et al.
    Scale-up of piped water coverage in the local community strongly protects against S. haematobium re-infection intensity among primary school-going children following treatment with praziquantel.

    Tropical Disease: Dissecting the schistosome cloak

    Carolyn E Adler
    Two proteins required for the growth of a skin-like structure called the tegument in parasitic flatworms could be new targets for drugs to kill these parasites.

    Functional genomic characterization of neoblast-like stem cells in larval Schistosoma mansoni

    Bo Wang et al.
    Cells that give rise to the infectious form of parasitic flatworms called schistosomes show similar patterns of gene expression to stem cells in free-living flatworms.

    Tropical Diseases: Can CRISPR help in the fight against parasitic worms?

    Paul McVeigh, Aaron G Maule
    The first reports of CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in flatworms could usher in a new era of research on these dangerous human parasites.

    Transcriptome analysis illuminates the nature of the intracellular interaction in a vertebrate-algal symbiosis

    John A Burns et al.
    The endosymbiosis between an alga and the spotted salamander shows several parallels to invertebrate-algal symbioses as well as to pathogen associations in vertebrate animals.
