Part of the Springer Series in Molecular Biology book series (SSMOL)


A particular contribution of this book is to revisit host-parasite relationships from the standpoint of the rapidly advancing knowledge of the biological picture of the living world, which has resulted from the establishment of molecular biology and revolution in immunology. The first discipline permits an understanding of biological phenomena as the modes of molecular movements, characterized by the replication of relatively constant nucleotide base sequences in the genetic code. The second discipline deals with one of the homeostatic regulatory mechanisms of higher animals, although it has developed as a result of the analysis of host responses to “foreign” invaders.
