Fifty-nine researchers from 25 countries met for the first time at the University of Life Sciences of Warsaw in Poland to discuss a coordinated approach in tackling anthelmintic resistance in ruminants.
The network (“COMBAR – COMbatting Anthelmintic Resistance in Ruminants) will be supported over the 4 next years by the EU COST programme and aims to harmonize procedures, train young researchers and generate new data to support the transition to sustainable worm control approaches. Thereby it will focus on 3 pillars: diagnostics, socio-economic aspects and novel control approaches.

Editor's note: Once COMBAR is fully functional, hopefully, there will be some opportunity for cooperation between US and EU.
