Access to biological materials and field testing for onchocerciasis
The University of Buea has access to onchocerciasis patients, and can therefore provide to partners a range of biological materials including serum and parasites. We can also undertake epidemiological surveys and field testing.
The University of Buea is willing to enter into partnerships for access to its state of the art facilities and expertise in drug screening for onchocerciasis whole parasite: adult worms, microfilariae and L3; medium throughput . The screens are primarily based on the Onchocerca ochengi model and include a Loa loa microfilariae screening component.
