Infectious Blood Diseases of Man and Animals: Diseases Caused by Protista, Volume II: The Pathogens, the Infections, and the Consequences focuses on the study of metabolic, immuno-pathologic, taxonomic, ultrastructural, locomotor, ecologic, zoonotic, and other features of the protistan blood diseases. The book first discusses the diseases of particular interest to man, including bartonellosis, malaria, and human trypanosomiases. Topics include types of human infection, pathology and pathogenesis, immunology, chemotherapy, transmission and epidemiology, human and simian malaria, and geographical distribution and prevalence. The publication also ponders on Trypanosoma (Schizotrypanum) cruzi infection, as well as pathology, pathogenesis, immunology, and transmission. The manuscript elaborates on relapsing fevers, babesiosis, theileriasis, and trypanosomiasis. Discussions focus on development in tick vector, resistance, prevention and control, clinical syndrome, chemotherapy, and immunity and immunization. The text is a valuable reference for students interested the diseases caused by Protista.
