Immunology of Parasitic Infections: Report of a Workshop
  • ISSN: 0002-9637
  • E-ISSN: 1476-1645


On behalf of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, I welcome you to this Workshop on the Immunology of Parasitic Infections. I also would like to avail myself of this opportunity to thank the Naval Medical Research Institute for a splendid example of interagency cooperation in allowing the use of its facilities, including food and drink, to the participants in this workshop.

During its June 1969 meeting, the Advisory Council of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases approved the Immunology of Parasitic Infections Special Emphasis Program.

The complexity of structure and function of parasites has made the study of immunology of these infectious agents exceptionally challenging and rewarding. Exciting opportunities for the elucidation of mechanisms and manifestations of immunological responses to parasites now exist as the result of the impressive developments in immunology in recent years.
