Point-of-Care Testing for Neglected Tropical Diseases is a curated collection promoting articles in point-of-care testing for NTDs, including cutting-edge research and innovations in rapid diagnostic testing.
Research and review papers, as well as conference proceedings and poster abstracts addressing emerging challenges are included. The collection is intended to provide researchers and advanced students with an orientation of the field, to point them to relevant workgroups, and to address current challenges. The collection will grow over time in collaboration with experts in the field. There will be synergies with other collections within the Point-of-Care Testing Super Collection.
This collection comprises research and review papers published in peer-review journals, as well as selected conference papers and poster abstracts. The focus is on highly cited papers published since 2008.
Articles will include diseases such as Chagas, Chikungunya, Dengue, Dracunculiasis, Echinococcosis, Human African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Lymphatic filariasis, Rabies, Scabies, Schistosomiasis and Yaws among many other important neglected tropical diseases.
