Molecular diagnostics and genetic markers for rapid identification of parasitic diseases in resource-limited settings.
Parasitic diseases are a significant global health burden, particularly in resource-limited settings
where access to advanced diagnostic tools and healthcare facilities is limited. Conventional diagnostic
methods for parasitic diseases often lack sensitivity, specificity, and speed, leading to delayed diagnosis
and inadequate patient management. Molecular diagnostics and genetic markers have emerged as
promising approaches for rapid and accurate identification of parasitic infections in such settings.
This research paper provides an overview of the current state of molecular diagnostics and the
utilization of genetic markers for the detection and identification of parasitic diseases in resourcelimited
regions. It highlights the potential benefits, challenges, and future prospects of implementing
these advanced techniques to enhance parasitic disease diagnosis, surveillance, and control. Author(s): Li Ziqiang*, Yolanda Eliza Putri Lubis, Irza Haicha Pratama
