    About This Project

    Med Biotech Laboratories
    Nodding Disease Syndrome (NDS) is a brain disease that affects children in Uganda. We currently don’t know of the exact cause of NDS, nor have a reliable form of diagnosis. This project aims to answer both of these questions by first investigating a link between a suspected brain protein which might be related to NDS, and a protein related to a parasitic worm disease, and to measure levels of this protein in affected/unaffected children.
