Treatment of Rat Lungworm Disease

Presentation by John Jacob, PhD Candidate in Pharmaceutical Sciences at UH Hilo, from India. The treatment aspects of rat lungworm disease have been historically controversial, particularly with the use of antiparasitics. It has been proposed that killing the rat lungworm larvae in the brain could result in severe inflammation, and further associated complications. However, there has never been a thorough study to verify these concerns, until now. This presentation will discuss the use of antiparasitics to treat this disease. Part of the International Speaker Series sponsored by UH Hilo International Student Services and the United Nations Association-USA-Hawaii Island Chapter.
