Key Features

  • Presents various parasites and examines how they interact with their hosts and respond to new treatments
  • Easy to read with photographs, diagrams, and clinical case pictures throughout

Description

Human Parasitology 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 4e 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.

New to this Edition:
• 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
• New Host Immune Response section for each organism

Readership

Premedical, medical technology, and undergraduate microbiology students as well as researchers and professionals in related disciplines.

Burton Bogitsh

Burton J. Bogitsh received his undergraduate education in biology at New York University (University Heights) and his graduate education at Baylor University (M.A.) and the University of Virginia (Ph.D.). He is currently Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University. He has authored more than 100 publications in the area of parasitology and has co-authored a textbook in General Zoology. He is an associate editor of the Journal of Morphology, co-editor of Volume 2 of the Microscopical Anatomy of Invertebrates, and has contributed many chapters to numerous edited volumes on parasitology. His research interests are in the ultrastructural localization of enzymes in helminths with a primary focus on the digestive tracts of trematodes.

Quotes and reviews

"There are few textbooks for students studying medical parasitology. This up-to-date third edition is easier to read than many, making it a viable option for upper-level students."--Martha Gentry-Nielsen, PhD, Creighton University School of Medicine
