Pharmaceutical Monographs, Volume 2: An Introduction to Parasitology focuses on the principles, methodologies, and approaches involved in parasitology, including treatment, infections, and parasitism. The book first offers information on the nature of parasitism, characteristics of parasites, relationship of parasites to hosts, physiology and ecology of parasites, infection, transmission and dissemination of parasites, and resistance and immunity to parasitic infections. The text then examines protozoology and helminthology. Discussions focus on the nature and classification of parasitic worms, biology of parasitic worms, pathogenic effects of parasitic worms, and nature and classification of Protozoa. The manuscript ponders on entomology, malacology, and diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Topics include classification of mollusks, bionomics and control, nature and classification of Arthropoda of medical and veterinary importance, mosquitoes, bugs, fleas, and mites and ticks. The publication is a vital reference for researchers interested in parasitology.
