Welcome to ELSM

The web page for Enhanced Laboratory Surveillance of Measles,
a European Commission Partnership Project.

The aim of the ELSM project is to develop, harmonise and co-ordinate the wider use of oral-fluid based diagnostic methods and apply these to the surveillance of measles in Europe.

This will be achieved by establishing an integrated network of expert laboratory scientists and epidemiologists to enhance surveillance for measles. ELSM will introduce standardised methods for IgM measles antibody detection and RT-PCR sequencing of measles suitable for use on oral fluid. This, together with the development of an information exchange network will provide an infrastructure and the necessary information to inform progress towards the goal of measles elimination from Europe in 2010.

This web site is administered by the coordinating partner of the ELSM network, SRMD, Health Protection Agency. It aims to provide information relating to project ELSM and disseminate other information relevant to measles, measles surveillance and measles eradication in Europe.

This site is currently under development.
The section named Measles Info is still Under Construction
