The PLOS "Speaking of Medicine" blog highlights a number of new articles published in the current issues of PLOS NTDs and PLOS Pathogens. In PLOS NTDs, "A. Desiree LaBeaud and Hannah McKeating explore the consequences of declining funding in America for all kinds of research, including [neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)]," and "Sheila West and colleagues find that the WHO's recommendation [for annual antibiotic mass drug administrations (MDA) to prevent trachoma] falls short of what is necessary for an MDA to achieve maximum efficacy, even with high coverage rates," the blog states. In PLOS Pathogens, researchers examine HIV superinfection among a Kenyan cohort of women and multidrug-resistant gonorrhea strains, the blog notes (8/29).
