American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 62nd Annual Meeting Nov. 13-17, Washington DC
Date:9/10/2013

xpensive hand-held devices and other field testing technology that can be used to quickly detect counterfeits.

Note: Malaria research is front and center at the meeting, which will include results from an ongoing clinical trial testing whether a single dose of a new malaria medicine can cure the type of malaria that relapses. Also, several of the world's leading experts in malaria will debate a new push to massively administer malaria drugs to peoplesick or wellto finish off the disease in areas where other interventions have dramatically reduced transmission.

Tick Armor: Amidst growing concern about the dangers of tick borne disease such as Lyme, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Ehrlichiosis, and the recently discovered Heartland Virus, scientists are testing how well certain clothing can repel ticksand possibly also repel mosquitoes and chiggers.

Old Drugs, New Uses: A drug long used to fight coronary artery disease might have a second life as a treatment for dengue.

Spying on Dengue from Space: A cutting edge program using highly sensitive satellite technology seeks to monitor the spread of dengue fever in North Americaa disease on the move in Mexico and firmly established in Florida.

Note: Other new dengue studies include: an assessment of public support for using genetically modified mosquitoes to fight dengue in Key West and an analysis of why dengue appears to be spreading in Florida but not in another seemingly vulnerable area of the United States.

Probiotic but "Anti-worm": An innovative effort to fight parasitic worms that infect up to two billion people worldwide with a genetically engineered a food supplement.

Wildlife Trafficking, Transmitting Animal Diseases: There is growing concern about disease transmission caused by consuming and trafficking in wild animals. Scientists will report on a new analysis of the food safety implications of
