William C. Campbell shares the 2015 ‪#‎NobelPrize‬ in Physiology or Medicine with Ōmura for discovering Ivermectin

William C. Campbell shares the 2015 ‪#‎NobelPrize‬ in Physiology or Medicine “for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites”.
Campbell and his co-recipient Ōmura has discovered a new drug, Ivermectin, effective against a variety of parasites including those that cause River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis (Elephantiasis). As the name implies, River Blindness (Onchocerciasis) ultimately leads to blindness, because of chronic inflammation in the cornea. Lymphatic Filariasis, afflicting more than 100 million people, causes chronic swelling and leads to life-long stigmatizing and disabling clinical symptoms, including Elephantiasis (Lymphedema) and Scrotal Hydrocele.
