Session 25:
STH control beyond school-based targeted deworming: Evidence of the additional benefits of community-based mass chemotherapy 

Date: 6 November 2017

Time: 10:15-12:00pm 

Location: Baltimore Convention Centre – Room 339/340 (Level 300)

Prof Sir Roy Anderson, Dr Judd Walson and Dr Rachel Pullan will present findings from experimental and modelling studies that aim to establish evidence to determine the benefits of community mass deworming for STH control, in order to achieve long-term, sustainable reductions in the burden of these parasites and potentially elimination.

Session 28:
Poster Session A

Date: 6 November 2017

Time: 12:00-1:45pm

The team from the Clinical Trial and Implementation Science Support Unit are presenting a poster (#247) on:

Strategies to improve coverage of community-based distribution programs: a systematic review of the literature’

While you’re there, head to a poster (#534) by the Economic Analysis Support Unit:

Detecting albendazole metabolites in serum and urine: a first step in developing an indicator of MDA compliance in humans’

Session 69:
Verifying the Elimination of Neglected Tropical Diseases: Implications for Sampling

Date: 7 November 2017

Time: 8:00-09:45am

Location: Baltimore Convention Centre – Room 337/338 (Level 300)

Engage with Dr James Truscott from our Modelling and Trial Simulation Support Unit as he presents

Transmission models in study design: detecting elimination and the impact of pre-existing treatment programs'

Session 145:
Poster Session C

Date: 8 November 2017

Time: 12:00-1:45pm

Bring your lunch and interact with Dr Marleen Werkman from our modelling & trial simulation support unit to find out the answer to:

Are we on the right track? Stopping criteria for ending soil-transmitted helminths randomized clinical trials’ (#1801)

From the same group, Dr James Truscott will present:

Testing for STH elimination: modelling the impact of different diagnostics tools’ (#1826)

Session 182:
Intestinal and Tissue Helminths: Soil-Transmitted Helminths – Epidemiology and Control

Date: 9 November 2017

Time: 08:00-9:45am

Location: Baltimore Convention Centre – Room 331/332 (Level 300)

Join Marina Papaiakovou as she demonstrates the results of a pooling study:
