Onchocerciasis, also known as onchocercosis, caused by a filarial nematode, is probably better known to the lay public by the more graphic name river blindness. It is endemic in many areas throughout the sub-Saharan parts of Africa from Nigeria to Tanzania and from Angola to Eritrea; in the Americas, it is most often found in Mexico, Venezuela, and Colombia.

Accurate, simple and affordable diagnostics are needed to detect Onchocerca volvulus infection in humans. A newly developed colorimetric loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay was compared to PCR and skin snip analysis for diagnosis of onchocerciasis. The robustness and simplicity of the assay indicates that it may be a useful field tool for surveillance in endemic countries.

Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness, is a disease caused by infection with the parasitic worm Onchocerca volvulus. Symptoms include severe itching, bumps under the skin, and blindness. It is the second-most common cause of blindness due to infection, after trachoma. The parasite worm is spread by the bites of a black fly of the Simulium type. Usually, many bites are required before infection occurs. These flies live near rivers, hence the common name of the disease
