CABI Book Chapter


Book cover for Fasciolosis.


This book consists of 14 chapters that deal with modern technologies applied to learn more about the molecular biology of liver flukes, biochemistry, metabolism, immunology, immunopathology and genetics of Fasciola. In addition, this book seeks to have a better understanding of global importance of fascioliasis, its cost to farming communities, and its distribution and epidemiology....
