... on a single drug therapy for onchocerciasis for which there is evidence ofresistance. Wolbachia are attractive targets for control of filariasis as the endosymbiontsappear to be obligate for human filarial nematode vitality. Antibiotic studies in both animalmodels and in human trials indicate that disruption...

... Abstract Wolbachia of arthropods and nematodes have contrasting patterns of association withtheir hosts. These patterns reflect the biological nature of the associations: parasitic in arthropodsand possibly mutualistic in filarial nematodes. Genome sequence data are aiding in boththe resolution...
