International conference: "Animal parasitic diseases spread to new people: Epidemiology, diagnosis and prevention in Asian countries"

In recent years, parasitic diseases transmitted from animals to humans have more and more favorable conditions to develop and spread. Parasitic diseases not only cause economic losses but also seriously damage human health, even causing the risk of death. In the face of high parasitic disease, which has a big impact on the community, the study of epidemiology, diagnosis and comprehensive preventive measures is very important.

In Vietnam, the study of animal parasitic diseases to humans has achieved great results and is receiving the attention of the world scientific community. Over the past 15 years, international cooperation in animal parasitic research has spread to many national and international scientists, including a series of works published in national magazines. It comes from studies in Vietnam. The Institute of Biotechnology has oriented and applied many new methods, especially the application of molecular biology in the study of molecular molecular biology in general and animal parasitic diseases spread to people in particular in Vietnam. 

To gather and enlist international cooperation, on June 25, 2012, the Institute of Biotechnology, with funding from the National Science and Technology Development Fund (NAFOSTED), organized the Association. International workshop with the theme: "Animal parasitic disease spreads to new people: Epidemiology, diagnosis and prevention in Asian countries". Assoc. Le Thanh Hoa - Biotechnology Institute chaired the workshop.


At the seminar, there were 10 scientific reports presented by famous researchers from Thailand, Australia, Korea, Japan, the United States, Belgium and China, including participation. Report of 2 Vietnamese scientists. With the main contents of the current situation of parasitic diseases such as tapeworm, tapeworm ... transmitted through food and animals in the Mekong Delta, Japan, Vietnam and China; problems that need to be biologically relevant to human fasciolosis; Methods for diagnosing human trematode fluke, rapid diagnosis of small liver fluke clonorchiasis by serological reaction and DNA method - mitochondrial dome diagnosis with Opisthorchis viverrini and Multiplex-PCR with Fasciola spp; Special emphasis on epidemiology, diagnosis and control of Taenia tapeworm disease in Asia and animal parasitic disease problems spread to people in China ...

This workshop has helped Vietnamese scientists have the opportunity to learn, exchange and discuss research experiences of countries with advanced scientific levels in the world, and at the same time expand cooperative relations. work, define future research directions in the future.
