Immunology of the Infection

Part of the World Class Parasites book series (WCPA, volume 11)


What motivates people to study the immunology of parasitic infections, especially those described in the preceding chapters of this book? One of the most practical purposes would be the development of a diagnostic kit to detect parasite antigens or specific antibodies in clinical samples. For decades, fish-borne and plant-borne zoonoses have been limited for the most part to populations living in low- and middle-income countries who have specific food consumption customs.
