  1. Recent developments in Blastocystis research.

    Advances in Parasitology 82:1 (2013) PMID 23548084

    We appraise the published evidence addressing this and its weaknesses. Genetic diversity studies have led to the identification of numerous subtypes (STs) within the genus Blastocystis and, recently, methods for studying variation within STs have been developed, with implications for our understandi...
  2. Plasmodium vivax: clinical spectrum, risk factors and pathogenesis.

    Advances in Parasitology 80:151 (2012) PMID 23199488

    Vivax malaria was historically described as 'benign tertian malaria' because individual clinical episodes were less likely to cause severe illness than Plasmodium falciparum. Despite this, Plasmodium vivax was, and remains, responsible for major morbidity and significant mortality in vivax-endemic a...
  3. The role of acidocalcisomes in the stress response of Trypanosoma cruzi.

    Advances in Parasitology 75:307 (2011) PMID 21820562 PMCID PMC3427654

    Acidocalcisomes of Trypanosoma cruzi are acidic calcium-containing organelles rich in phosphorus in the form of pyrophosphate (PP(i)) and polyphosphate (poly P). Acidification of the organelles is driven by vacuolar proton pumps, one of which, the vacuolar-type proton pyrophosphatase, is absent in m...
  4. Foreword

    Advances in Parasitology 73:0 (2010) PMID 20627135

  5. Natural history of host-parasite interactions. Preface.

    Advances in Parasitology 68:xiii (2009) PMID 19289187

  6. Variation of Leptopilina boulardi success in Drosophila hosts: what is inside the black box?

    Advances in Parasitology 70:147 (2009) PMID 19773070

    Interactions between Drosophila hosts and parasitoid wasps are among the few examples in which occurrence of intraspecific variation of parasite success has been studied in natural populations. Such variations can originate from three categories of factors: environmental, host and parasitoid factors...
  7. Chapter 2 An Introduction to Malaria Parasites

    Advances in Parasitology 67:5 (2008) PMID 18940419

  8. Systematics and epidemiology of trichinella.

    Advances in Parasitology 63:367 (2006) PMID 17134656

    We describe the current knowledge on the systematics, ecology and epidemiology of Trichinella and trichinellosis, and the impact of recent research discoveries on the understanding of this zoonosis. The epidemiology of this zoonosis has experienced important changes over the past two decades, especi...
  9. The range and biological activity of FMRFamide-related peptides and classical neurotransmitters in nematodes.

    Advances in Parasitology 45:109 (2000) PMID 10751940

    Nematodes include both major parasites of humans, livestock and plants in addition to free-living species such as Caenorhabditis elegans. The nematode nervous system (especially in C. elegans) is exceptionally well defined in terms of the number, location and projections of the small number of neuro...
  10. Proteases of protozoan parasites.

    Advances in Parasitology 43:105 (1999) PMID 10214691

    Proteolytic enzymes seem to play important roles in the life cycles of all medically important protozoan parasites, including the organisms that cause malaria, trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, amebiasis, toxoplasmosis, giardiasis, cryptosporidiosis and trichomoniasis. Proteases from all four major pr...
