A Blog Around The Clock

The next journal to be launched by the Public Library of Science is PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases.

To whet your appetite, two papers were published in advance, both on the cause of River Blindness and the evolution of resistance to the anti-parasitic ivermectin: a research paper Genetic Selection of Low Fertile Onchocerca volvulus by Ivermectin Treatment and a commentary Ivermectin Resistance in Onchocerca volvulus – Toward a Genetic Basis.

Shabnam Sigman gives more details about the launch on the PLoS Blog. You can get more information about the new journal here.
