Outbreak News Interviews

Sep 21, 2019

In this podcast of a video interview from the 4th Annual Amoeba Summit hosted by the Jordan Smelski Foundation, I spoke to Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist at All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine in St. Petersburg, Juan Dumois, MD.

Dr Dumois shared his thought on why the rapid diagnosis of Naegleria is so challenging, he briefly discussed the primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) protocol used in his facility and the importance of keeping the drug, miltefosine readily available in the hospital.
