is the first in a series of monographs being written to consider recent developments in parasitic disease. The book presents the most comprehensive review of the immunobiology of the major parasitic diseases afflicting man and domestic animals published to date in a single volume. Particular attention has been given to those parasitic diseases which the World Health Organization has emphasized as having the greatest medical, social and economic impact currently on the world. These diseases include schistosomiasis, malaria, Chagas disease, African trypanosomiasis, filariasis and leishmaniasis. The contributors to this volume all have been actively involved in the recent evolution of immunoparasitology as a discipline. Each chapter considers in depth the immunobiology of a particular parasitic disease with little attention given to life cycle, host or vectors or to consideration of immunodiagnostic procedures. The authors assume that the reader is familiar with basic immunology and recent developments in both clinical and experimental aspects of basic immunologic mechanisms.
