Dear colleagues,

I am glad to announce that the Leprosy Research Initiative's (LRI) annual report is published. Please click here to read the full report. LRI contributes to zero leprosy by promoting, facilitating and funding high-quality research; strengthening research capacity, and facilitating the translation of results into policy and practice.

Unfortunately, we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Should you be interested in information resources on COVID-19 and leprosy, please visit the key topic page 'Leprosy and COVID-19' at Infolep. We keep this page updated with, among others, guidance reports, articles and online courses.

Like every month we send you an overview of publications on leprosy recently added to the Infolep website. Please feel free to contact me to receive full-text versions if these cannot be found through the Infolep portal. Also, I would be happy to assist you with literature searches.

Warm regards,

Anniek Akerboom

Notification

 


 

The journal Leprosy Review has a renewed website www.leprosyreview.org. Unfortunately, temporary technical issues have led to several volumes of Leprosy Review not being available on the new website and therefore not accessible through the Infolep portal. We are collaborating with Leprosy Review to ensure that the links will work properly again as soon as possible. Please contact info@infolep.org to receive the Leprosy Review publication you are looking for or visit the Leprosy Review web archive.

Ongeveer 200.000 mensen per jaar krijgen de diagnose lepra, terwijl er een werkend medicijn tegen is. Hoe kan dat? Toine Pieters, hoogleraar wetenschapsgeschiedenis, was gefascineerd door deze vraag en ging in Suriname op zoek naar de leprabacterie. Samen met dermatoloog Henk Menke, patholoog-anatoom George Maat, immunoloog Annemieke Geluk en internist en infectioloog Jaap van Dissel gaat hij op zoek naar de oorsprong van de leprabacterie. Hoe verloopt de overdracht van de ziekte? En hoe is de leprabacterie in Suriname terechtgekomen? Filmmaker Boris Everts reisde mee naar Suriname voor het vastleggen van de expeditie, die nieuwe inzichten over de transmissie van lepra heeft opgeleverd.

Fw: (LML) Surveillance of AMR in Leprosy


Leprosy Mailing List – July 27,  2020

 

Ref.:  (LML) Surveillance of AMR in Leprosy

 

From:  VV Pai, Mumbai, India


 

 

Dear Dr Schreuder and colleagues,

 

With reference to an email from Dr Rathnayake from Sri Lanka dated 30-6-2020 which I received from Dr Schreuder on 3-7-2020 regarding the plans for surveillance for AMR (anti-microbial resistance) in Sri Lanka. It is very much pertinent that research on the current scenario of drug resistance in Sri Lanka will be important and beneficial for the global surveillance programme. We have been working on projects involving field surveys and lab investigations in Mumbai.


As required find attached some key publications on this work involving the methodology of detection of gene mutations using molecular techniques. However, there are no primers available to detect mutations due to Clofazimine. Also find attached templates/links for questionnaires, consent forms, assent forms, Ethical Requisition letters. (Note editor: most of the mentioned files were not accepted by Google Group for transmission – see references).


We hope this will help in planning your proposed research work and we will be glad to help on further queries and looking forward in future endeavours.

Best wishes,
