Tropical Gastroenterology &

CLINICAL 

THEMES

MALNUTRITION

Mortality is still very high in children with sever malnutrition. We work to find ways to reduce this mortality.

CANCER

Cancer of the oesophagus and stomach affect young adults in Zambia. We want to find out why and how to detect it in time for treatment to be effective.

CRYPTOSPORIDIOSIS

Cryptospoidios in an important cause of malnutrition and death. We work to find more effective treatments and to reduce transmission.

ENTEROPATHY

Infection and malnutrition lead to enteropathy, which increases the likelihood of further infection and worsened malnutrition. We work to find ways to heal this enteropathy.

SCHISTOSOMIASIS

Parts of Zambia are hyper endemic for S. mansoni. We work to find ways to reduce the impact on growing children and on adults.

HEPATITIS B

HBV affects 5% of Zambians, leading to cirrhosis and liver cancer.  We work to find ways to reduce transmission and to treat it more effectively.
