Excerpt
INTRODUCTION The twelfth meeting of the Scientific Working Group (SWG) on Filariasis of the UNDP/WORLD BANXIWHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) was held at Thanjavur Medical College Hospital, Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, India, in cooperation with the Pogarty International Center, Uelhesda, MD, USA, which sponsored the attendance of participants from the USA, and with the Indian Council for Medical Research, which sponsored the attendance of a numher of observer* from India. The purpose of the meeting was to review the pathogenesis of lymphoedema and other similar clinical manifestations of bancroftian and brugian filariasis. By drawing on the combined knowledge of surgeons, physicians, epidemiulogi~ ts with Field cxperience of filariasis, lymphologista, pathologists, immunologists with specialized knowledge of the organ systems concerned, and those working on experimental filarial infections in animal models, it was hoped to determine new ways of preventing or treating filarial lymphoedema and what further research is needed.
