Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the resurgent of diseases that cause immunodeficiency coupled with a rapid rise in drug resistance to a variety of infectious diseases, parasitic infections are emerging and reemerging as a major problem to public health worldwide. Recent advances in host-parasite relationships have unraveled new concepts in parasite pathogenic mechanisms, host innate and immune responses and improved treatment strategies to control and/or limit infection. In this special issue, we invite investigators to submit manuscripts that address the broad diversity of parasitic problems (protozoan and helminths) related to public health issues, pathogenesis, immune responses and host defense mechanisms and emerging treatment strategies to combat parasitic infections.
We look forward to your contribution.
