Project

Development of a high-throughput inhibition ELISA to replace immune trypanolysis for post-elimination monitoring of gambiense-HAT (iELISA HAT)

Support the delivery of the proof-of-concept for the replacement of the current reference test by an alternative test, the gambiense-iELISA. If it is shown that this test can successfully replace the immune trypanolysis test, it will be pivotal in post-elimination monitoring to avoid re-emergence of gambiense-HAT. It will also drastically reduce the use of laboratory animals and will be applicable in national and regional reference laboratories in Africa.
