    Emily R Adams
    Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen KIT Biomedical Research, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Am J Trop Med Hyg 82:591-6. 2010
    ..The potential to use LAMP as a diagnostic tool for leishmaniasis is discussed...
  2. pmc Diagnostic accuracy of molecular amplification tests for human African trypanosomiasis--systematic review
    Claire M Mugasa
    Royal Tropical Institute, KIT Biomedical Research, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 6:e1438. 2012
    ..Here, we investigated the diagnostic accuracy of molecular amplification tests for HAT, the quality of articles and reasons for variation in accuracy...
  3. pmc Concomitant malaria among visceral leishmaniasis in-patients from Gedarif and Sennar States, Sudan: a retrospective case-control study
    Erika van den Bogaart
    Department of Biomedical Research, Parasitology Unit, Royal Tropical Institute KIT, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    BMC Public Health 13:332. 2013
    ..In VL-endemic areas with unstable and seasonal malaria, vulnerability to the disease persists through all age-groups, suggesting that in these populations, malaria may easily co-occur with VL, with potentially severe clinical effects...

    Emily R Adams
    Royal Tropical Institute Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 6:e1946. 2012
    ..However, subjective interpretation of results introduces potential for inter-reader variation. We report an assessment of inter-laboratory agreement and propose a pictorial-based approach to standardize reading of the DAT...
