Book Description: Including an expanded section on anti-parasite vaccines, this text focuses on modern research in immunoparasitiology directed at understanding and exploiting the capacity to develop effective anti-parasite immunity. The experimental basis of the research is emphasized throughout/5(4). Parasite Immunology. Parasitic helminths, or worms, comprise a diverse group of metazoan organisms that infect billions of people and domesticated animals. Most of the parasites by the nature of their continuous contact with the immune system, generate a prolific immune response.

The three main pathogenic mechanisms proposed to explain the role of infectious factors as triggers of autoimmune diseases during parasitic infections are (1) polyclonal B- or T-cell activation, (2) increased molecular mimicry, or (3) immunogenicity of self-antigens secondary to the infection-mediated inflammation [4–7].Author: Orlando Paciello, Chiara Palmieri, Iwona Otrocka-Domagala, Laura Rinaldi, Jorge Morales-Montor, Pete.

In spite of humoral and cellular immunity to T. cruzi, the infection is able to persist in the host. Human malaria is caused by infection with any of four species of Plasmodium, with Plasmodium falciparum being the most pathogenic.

Symptoms of malaria infections include fever and malaise; however, infections with P. falciparum can be fatal. Immunology of parasitic infections [Cohen, Sydney, Sadun, Elvio Herbert] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Immunology is the study of our protection from foreign macromolecules or invading organisms and our responses to them.

These invaders include viruses, bacteria, protozoa or even larger parasites. In addition, we develop immune responses against our own proteins (and other molecules) in autoimmunity and against our own aberrant cells in tumor. Immunology and Evolution of Infectious Disease STEVEN A.
