Genomics, population genetics and evolutionary history of Plasmodium vivax.
We discuss how humans acquired the lineage leading to P. vivax from a nonhuman primate determined by the complex geological processes that took place in Southeast Asia during the last few million years. We conclude that widespread population genomic investigations are needed in order to understand t...
Patterns and processes in parasite co-infection.
We must, if we are to design and deliver successful medical interventions for co-infected populations. Here, we synthesise an emergent understanding of how processes operate and interact to generate patterns of co-infection. We consider within-host communities (or infracommunities) generally, that i...
Mechanisms of host cell invasion by Trypanosoma cruzi.
One of the more accepted concepts in our understanding of the biology of early Trypanosoma cruzi-host cell interactions is that the mammalian-infective trypomastigote forms of the parasite must transit the host cell lysosomal compartment in order to establish a productive intracellular infection. Th...
Chapter 26 Transcriptomes, Proteomes and Data Mining
Insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) are the most powerful malaria control tool to be developed since the advent of indoor residual spraying (IRS) and chloroquine in the 1940s, and as such they have been an important component of global and national malaria control policies since the mid-1990s. Yet a dec...
Control of Taenia solium cysticercosis/taeniosis.
We consider the tools available for combating cysticercosis and suggest simple packages of interventions, which can be conducted utilizing existing services and structures in the endemic countries to provide appropriate and sustainable control of the disease....
Interactions between host and parasite. Preface.
Biology of the schistosome genus Trichobilharzia.
We recommend combining knowledge of life cycles and developmental stages, snail/bird hosts, cytogenetical and molecular data together with morphological criteria for the characterization of particular species. The high specificity of Trichobilharzia for the intermediate host is a likely reflection o...
