Hey, Immunobloggers, how about some coverage of the chicken-pox lollipop scandal?

Guinea worm (dracunculiasis) is nearly eradicated, remaining in isolated areas in 4 African countries. This nasty creature must pass through a human host who acquires both a male and a female larva from drinking water. They mate within, and the egg-laying female emerges from the skin a year later. If this step can be eliminated (the Carter Foundation thinks it an) then the worm will be gone, as there is no other host. Good riddance!
