Using worm therapy to combat modern diseases in Australia is the topic
of the first in the series of free Science at the Salthouse lectures
organised by James Cook University on July 25. Professor Alex Loukas
will talk about the potential of treating inflammatory diseases with
live parasitic worms and molecules derived from worm "saliva" to mimic
the effect of a worm infection.  His talk 'An ancient cure for modern
diseases' will be held on Wednesday, July 25, 6.30-7.30pm at the
Salthouse.

 

Queensland Tropical Health Alliance (QTHA) researchers at James Cook
University (JCU) and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceutical Inc. (BI) will
collaborate to develop novel therapeutics based on parasites for the
treatment of a range of inflammatory diseases including inflammatory
bowel disease and asthma.  For more information or to arrange an
interview contact Lisa Jones +61 (0)477904853 or +61 (0)405620747 or +61
