Abstract

The interaction between blood-borne pathogens and fibrinolysis is one of the most important mechanisms that mediate invasion and the establishment of infectious agents in their hosts. However, overproduction of plasmin (final product of the route) has been related in other contexts to proliferation ...

Abstract

Infectious pathogens from wild animals have become increasingly important throughout the world in recent years, as they have had a substantial impact in livestock and human health. A large number of pathogens (61% of the 1415 currently identified human pathogens within 313 different genera) are...

Abstract

Libyostrongylus sp. are nematodes that infect ostriches. Libyostrongylus douglassii was first described in ostriches from several countries in the world. Later Libyostrongylus dentatus was morphologically identified in ostriches in the USA and Brazil, and mixed infection is common in the latter...

Abstract

Although there has been extensive veterinary focus on both the effectiveness of macrocyclic lactones for heartworm prevention in dogs and their adulticidal effects, little attention has been directed to their effects on heartworm microfilariae. With routine use of macrocyclic lactones, in some...

Abstract

Reports of loss-of-efficacy (LOE) events in dogs infected with Dirofilaria immitis despite adherence to accepted prophylaxis regimens with a macrocyclic lactone anthelmintic are attracting considerable attention. It is crucially important to distinguish among several possible causes for these LOE...

Abstract

This paper considers the various measures available to control several of the neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). To develop the optimum methods for controlling the parasites that cause these NTDs, knowledge of the life cycles of both the parasites and their vectors are essential. Each NTD requires ...

Abstract

This supplement contains 7 papers highlighting the application of modern approaches to gain a range of information on parasite biology and host-parasite interactions. The first paper reveals novel insights into the biology of the parasite-host interaction and describes molecular events coinciding...
