HUMAN PARASITOLOGY Excerpt :

The book, in its Second Edition, has been thoroughly revised considering the feedback received from the readers. The text has been simplified. New information has been added, and at the same time, extra details have been deleted to make the book concise. The new edition introduces a chapter on Medically Important Snails (Chapter 9). We, the human are the host of many parasites, which cause major public health problems, untold suffering and death. Thus, three major groups of parasites—protozoa (flagellates, amoebas, and malarial parasites), helminthes (flukes, tapeworms, and roundworms), and arthropods (insects and arachnids) have been discussed with suitable illustrations. Morphology, lifecycle, mode of transmission, incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and prevention of medically important parasites have been discussed in light of recent researches. In addition, the chapters, namely, the Evolutionary Aspects of Hosts and Parasites and Present Trends of Parasitic Importance add further value to the book. The book has been written for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Zoology and other Life Sciences disciplines. In addition, the medical students, public health workers and health professionals also find this text useful. Key Features • Diagrammatical presentation of life cycle of parasites. • Suitably illustrated text. • Discusses the food-borne, water-borne and vector-borne parasitic diseases. • Contains glossary of important terms.

Cases in Human Parasitology Excerpt :

"Cases in Human Parasitology focuses solely on parasites that adversely affect humans. Intended as a supplement to textbooks in human parasitology for undergraduate and medical school courses, this book of 62 case studies is also an important educational reference source for health care scientists active in the field of parasitology. The first four sections cover different groups of parasites, including intestinal protozoa; blood and tissue protozoa; cestodes, trematodes, and intestinal nematodes; and blood and tissue nematodes. The last section covers challenging cases and details non-parasitic infections in patients with symptoms closely resembling those of parasitic infections. Each case study opens with a patient history and description of symptoms, and most are accompanied by a color image of the parasite described. Thought-provoking questions are posed, covering everything from diagnosis and the life cycle of the identified parasite to epidemiology and prevention. The questions stimulate discussion while emphasizing the relationship of diagnosis to patient care. Cases present new, emerging, and well-known parasites, and parasites infrequently encountered in the United States are included. The book concludes with a glossary of descriptive terms. Cases in Human Parasitology is an excellent reinforcement of material learned in a clinical or laboratory setting. It will be useful for pathology residents and infectious disease fellows in preparing for board exams and it will serve in continuing the education of medical technologists involved in diagnostic parasitology"--Publisher's website.

Parasitology Excerpt :

Parasitology: An Integrated Approach, provides a concise, student-friendly account of parasites and parasite relationships that is supported by case studies and suggestions for student projects. The book focuses strongly on parasite interactions with other pathogens and in particular parasite-HIV interactions, as well as looking at how host behaviour contributes to the spread of infections. There is a consideration of the positive aspects of parasite infections, how humans have used parasites for their own advantage and also how parasite infections affect the welfare of captive and domestic animals. The emphasis of Parasitology is on recent research throughout and each chapter ends with a brief discussion of future developments. This text is not simply an updated version of typical parastitology books but takes an integrated approach and explains how the study of parasites requires an understanding of a wide range of other topics from molecular biology and immunology to the interactions of parasites with both their hosts and other pathogens.
