JICA-JST Project in Thailand

Thailand-Japan Collaboration for the Research and Development of Therapeutic Products against Infectious Diseases

- This project is implemented under the "Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (STEPS)" promoted by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) in collaboration -

This project aims to develop effective therapeutic products against emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases that are of great priority in Thailand through the international alliance collaborative research between the Department of Medical Sciences (DMSc), Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), Thailand and the Research Institute for Microbial Diseases (RIMD), Osaka University (OU), Japan.  In addition, the Faculty of Tropical medicine (FTM), Mahidol University (MU), faculty of Science (FS), MU, International Center for Biotechnology (ICB), OU, and Medical and Biological Laboratories Co., LTD (MBL) are invovled in this project.

This project concentrates in two lines: the first mainly concerns the development of human monoclonal antibodies (MAb) and the second covers the development of therapeutic candidates from microorganisms that are prevalent in Thailand.

These developed agents are expected to be candidates with great effectiveness against infections with dengue virus as well as influenza virus and botulinum toxin.  The successful candidates would be practically applied thereafter to clinical usage in Thailand.
