Description Human Parasitology, Fifth Edition, emphasizes a medical perspective while incorporating functional morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and immunology to enhance appreciation of the diverse implications of parasitism. Bridging the gap between classical clinical parasitology texts and traditional encyclopedic treatises, Human Parasitology appeals to students interested in the medical aspects of parasitology and those who require a solid foundation in the biology of parasites. This fifth edition has been fully revised to integrate the most recent molecular discoveries about mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods as vectors, as well as the most effective therapeutic regimens.
Key Features Integrates the most recent molecular discoveries about mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods as vectors, as well as the most effective therapeutic regimens Features expanded coverage of the evolution of parasitism and an extensive update to immunology of parasite-host interactions Offers an enhanced art program featuring life-cycle illustrations and additional SEM and TEM micrographs Provides New Host Immune Response section for each organism Includes a special section on the impact of genomics Readership Premedical, medical technology, and undergraduate microbiology and parasitology students as well as researchers and professionals in related disciplines
