The young go into captivity at San Marcos ARC where they are held in refugia as a guard against potential harm that could come in the wild.
To reduce anthelmintic usage and support the maintain populations in refugia, targeted selective treatments (TST) have been proposed which should help to conserve the genes that responsible for the sensitivity to anthelmintics within parasite populations and will lead to delay the development of drug-resistant in worm populations [6].One of the best examples of a TST indicator is FAMACHA[C] proposed by Dr.
