Protozoa and Human Disease is a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying parasitology and microbiology. It will also be a useful reference for public health and medical students. Dr. Mark Wiser reviews medically important protozoa, and treatment strategies. He describes pathogens according to a taxonomic scheme and in reference to the organ systems they affect. The book covers the morphological features and life cycles of the various protozoa and the pathogeneses of the diseases they cause. Life cycles are discussed in detail as they also influence host-parasite interactions, pathology, disease transmission, and epidemiology. Students will benefit from the authors fresh approach, which blends classical and medical parasitology with more modern disciplines. These include the molecular and immunological basis of pathogenesis; metabolic pathways; specialized subcellular structures; ecology of disease transmission; antigenic variation; and molecular epidemiology. An extensive glossary of molecular biology, immunology, and medical terms helps students navigate across disciplines.
Due to the advent of AIDS, there is currently great interest in opportunistic infections in people with compromised immune systems. This special volume of Advances in Parasitology provides a detailed account ofthe pathogens associated with human enteric diseases, Cryptosporidium parvum, Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Cyclospora cayetanensis. This volume is essential for all parasitologists working on opportunistic protozoa.
Both domestic and wild dogs are potential carriers of many disease organisms that can infect humans and hence constitute a risk to public health. This book is the first to address this important issue on an international basis.
In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the biology, classification and role in disease of protozoa. Topics discussed include the current and prospective tools for the control of cattle-infecting Babesia parasites; biological rhythms and cell behaviour in paramecium; the use of protozoan tetrahymena as a cell model; anaerobic energy metabolism in protozoa; the biology of gregarines (protozoa: apicomplexa); the biology of parasitic protozoa cysts involved in human water-borne infections; and the effect of nickel toxicity to nutrient removal by selected indigenous protozoan species in waste-water systems.
