Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Rapid, reliable and highly sensitive diagnostic tests are needed for the effective control and treatment parasitic diseases in animals. The rapid increase in parasites developing resistance against anti-parasitic drugs have also highlighted the need for the development of improved, highly sensitive early diagnostic assays. Recent advances in technology, molecular biology and proteomics have opened many new avenues for the development of improved diagnostics tools. These include immunoassays, nucleic- and proteomic-based approaches as well as machine-learning technologies.

In this special issue, we aim to show case the most recent research and developments in the diagnosis of parasitic infections in animals. We welcome both original research papers and reviews dealing with the topic.
