Parasitic diseases remain a serious public health problem. Invasions caused by various species of parasites are a threat to the health and life of millions of people around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks parasitic infestations among the six most harmful human infectious diseases. Humans can become infected with parasitic diseases via the alimentary tract, the skin, vertically, and by vectors, among others. In recent years, an increase in the incidence and number of deaths caused by parasitic diseases has been observed.
This is due to, inter alia, population migration and climate change. Tourism in its broadest sense and the changing climate are conducive to the spread of parasitic diseases so far characteristic only for tropical and subtropical regions. The overuse and irresponsible use of antiparasitic drugs is also a significant problem, which leads to a reduction in their effectiveness in the treatment of diseases caused by parasites.
Parasitic diseases are a growing challenge of modern medicine, and their control, diagnosis, and treatment require a great deal of effort and commitment from scientists and doctors of various specialties. This Special Issue aims to highlight the current scientific advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of parasitic diseases in children and adults.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
