Table of Contents

  1. Leishmania tropica: What we know from its experimental models
    2. A new level of complexity in parasite-host interaction: The role of extracellular vesicles
    3. The cathepsin-like cysteine peptidases of trematodes of the genus Fasciola
    4. Echinococcosis transmission on the Tibetan Plateau
    5. Diagnosis and drug resistance of human soil-transmitted helminth infections: A public health perspective


Advances in Parasitology, Volume 104, the latest in a series first published in 1963, contains comprehensive reviews on all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. The series includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, along with reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which help to shape current thinking and applications. This new release includes sections on Leishmania Tropica, Extracellular Vesicles in Host-Parasite Interaction, Cathepsins and Vaccines for Fascioliosis, Echinococcosis Transmission on the Tibetan Plateau, A Review of Diagnostics for STH from a Public Health Perspective, and Zoonotic Transmission of Intestinal Parasites: Implications for Control and Elimination.

About the Editors

David Rollinson

David Rollinson

Professor David Rollinson is a Merit Research Scientist at the Natural History Museum in London, where he leads a research team in the Wolfson Wellcome Biomedical Laboratories and directs the WHO Collaborating Centre for schistosomiasis. He has had a long fascination with parasites and the diseases that they cause, this has involved him in many overseas projects especially in Africa. He is on the WHO Expert Advisory Panel of parasitic diseases, the editor of Advances in Parasitology and a former President of the World Federation of Parasitologists. His research group uses a multidisciplinary approach, which combines detailed molecular studies in the laboratory with ongoing collaborative studies in endemic areas of disease, to explore the intriguing world of parasites in order to help control and eliminate parasitic diseases.
