You are kindly invited to publish your work in the new Special Issue of Pathogens (IF = 3.405) which is focused on Echinococcus spp. and echinococcosis. Echinococcus (mainly E. multilocularis and E. granulosus s.l.) is widely distributed and one of the most dangerous zoonotic parasites in the world. Epidemiological studies on the occurrence of this infection in humans as well as in animals that may be a source of infection for people are extremely important. Therefore, a lot of investigations on the development and improvement of diagnostic methods have been carried out. Moreover, many different programs of monitoring and control of echinococcosis in human and animal hosts have been elaborated and applied. What is more, all of these actions are supported by fast development of genetic studies concerning this tapeworm. This Special Issue gives the opportunity to publish research papers and reviews that cover this wide thematic scope.
