Joseph Turner explained: "The current river blindness elimination strategy uses annual mass administration of ivermectin to communities where onchocerciasis infection is present" "People who harbor high levels of L. loa are at risk of developing severe adverse reactions to ivermectin, which can cause coma and death. Therefore, many pharmaceutical and academic groups are developing new therapies which hope to target onchocerciasis whilst avoiding loiasis adverse reactions. However, a lack of accurate laboratory models of loiasis has hindered evidence-based decision-making of which drug candidates to progress. The key advance in our study was to utilize specific immunodeficient mouse strains as successful L. loa infection models which precisely emulate the clinical drug activity of ivermectin" External link
