About this book

Through all of the recent progress and publications on Schistosoma haematobium, S. mansoni and S. japonicum and diseases these parasites cause in human beings – engulfing Africa, South America and East Asia, it has become necessary to fill the gaps from South Asia perspective too, especially India from where many mammalian schistosome species have been discovered namely Schistosoma indicum, and S. spindale, S. nasale, S. incognitum, Orientobilharzia dattai, O. bomfordi, and Bivitellobilharzia nairi.

The history of schistosomes and schistosomiasis in Indian continent is more than hundred years old and a lot of research has been done to understand the infection in South Asian region. Authoritative and concise, Schistosomes and Schistosomiasis in South Asia covers all aspects of these schistosomes starting from taxonomy to life cycle, epidemiology, immunity, pathology, diagnosis (both parasitic and immunological diagnosis), chemotherapy and control. The book covers not only hepatic and nasal schistosomiasis in animals but also all the details on human schistosomiasis reported from this continent. There are also chapters which cover on experimental schistosome infections in laboratory animals and technologies developed for studying schistosomiasis.
