MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

 This book discusses recent developments in several laboratories studying leishmaniasis. Sequencing of the human genome, as well as of the leishmania genome, has led to significant advances in our understanding of host-immune responses against leishmania, and mechanisms of infection-induced pathology, which is responsible for morbidity and mortality. Pathogenesis of Leishmaniasis focuses on the latest basic research into leishmaniasis, but also addresses how advances in understanding can be applied to prevention, control and treatment of what the WHO has classified a neglected tropical disease.

 


Feature:

Will address the most recent developments in the understanding of leishmaniasis

Uses information gained from the sequencing of the leishmania genome to assess the host-immune response

Focus is primarily on the most recent basic research, but will also consider how to apply the knowledge gained to prevention, control and treatment of this neglected tropical disease
