A review of molecular approaches for investigating patterns of coevolution in marine host-parasite relationships.
We first highlight the factors and processes that challenge our ability to interpret evolutionary patterns of coevolution of hosts and their parasites in marine systems at different spatial, temporal and taxonomic scales. We then review the use of the most commonly utilized genetic markers in studyi...
Review: surveillance of Chagas disease.
After remarkable reduction in prevalence through regional elimination of domestic vectors, the central challenge of Chagas disease control is shifting towards interruption of the disease transmission by non-eliminable vectors in Latin America. Vector surveillance with community participation was cos...
Genetic epidemiology of Chagas disease.
Genetic epidemiological approaches hold great promise for improving the understanding of the determinants of susceptibility to infection with Trypanosoma cruzi and the causes of differential disease outcome in T. cruzi-infected individuals. To date, a variety of approaches have been used to understa...
Human genetic diversity and the epidemiology of parasitic and other transmissible diseases.
This paper aims to review human genetic studies that are generally poorly known by parasitologists and scientists working on other pathogenic agents. The key proposals of this paper are as follows: (i) human susceptibility to transmissible diseases may often have a complex, multigenic background; (i...
Advances and trends in the molecular systematics of the parasitic Platyhelminthes.
We review the current state of play and the early works that led to the molecular-based hypotheses that now predominate in the field; advances in their systematics, taxonomy, classification and phylogeny, as well as trends in species circumscription, molecular targets and analytical methods are disc...
Scabies: new future for a neglected disease.
Scabies is a disease of global proportions in both human and animal populations, resulting from infestation of the skin with the "itch" mite Sarcoptes scabiei. Despite the availability of effective chemotherapy the intensely itching lesions engender significant morbidity primarily due to secondary s...
Schistosomiasis in the Mekong region: epidemiology and phylogeography.
An account is given of progress made over the last 20 years in the study of Mekong schistosomiasis, causative agent Schistosoma mekongi (Trematoda: Digenea). Emphasis is given to the discussion of work concerning the origin and subsequent dispersal of S. mekongi and related taxa, including relevant...
