First published in 1963, Advances in Parasitology contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. Now edited by J.R. Baker (Royal School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, UK), R. Muller (International Institute of Parasitology, UK) and D. Rollinson (The Natural History Museum, UK), supported by an international Editorial Board, Advances in Parasitology includes medical studies on parasites of major influence, such as typanosomiasis and scabies, and reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which shape current thinking and applications. Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes on such topics as Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems in Epidemiology. In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that Advances in Parasitology has an Impact Factor of 4.913, placing it 2nd in the highly competitive category of Parasitology. First in the ISI Parasitology List in 2000 ISI Impact Factor of 6.724 in 2000 Series features over 35 years of parasitology coverage Aspects of human parasites in which surgical intervention may be important Electron transfer complexes in Ascaris Mitochondria Cestode prasites: application of in vivo and in vitro models for studies on the host-parasite relationship

Echinococcus and Echinococcosis, Part B, Volume 96 presents a complete synthesis on what is known about the parasitic cestode echinococcus and the disease it causes, echinococcosis (Hydatid Disease), demonstrating that, in addition to its medical, veterinary, and economic significance, it is also an intriguing biological phenomenon. Both parts build on the success of a previous volume—Echinococcus and Hydatid Disease, edited by R.C.A. Thompson and A.J. Lymbery, and published by CAB International—that details the major advances that have taken place since its release. The book remains the only comprehensive account embracing virtually all aspects of echinococcus and the disease it causes. The links between laboratory knowledge and field applications are emphasized throughout the volumes. Consequently, research workers, teachers, students of parasitology, clinicians, and field workers will find this work an indispensable source of information. Presents the expertise of contributors who are renowned in the field Covers all aspects of echinococcus and echinococcosis, from basic and applied biology, through diagnosis and control, to clinical aspects Examines major advances in the field since the last volume was published

In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that Advances in Parasitology has an Impact Factor of 4.913, placing it 2nd in the highly competitive category of Parasitology. This eclectic volume in the serial contains four reviews on the following topics: * Two reviews on the biology of trypanosomes (a parasitic protozoan) and trypanosomiasis (disease caused by the parasite, such as sleeping sickness and Chagas' disease), a topical area in public health, especially in Africa and South America, and much research in epidemiology and molecular biology/biochemistry. * A review summarizing the literature on the biology of Echinostomes (parasitic flatworms), focusing on descriptions and life cycle studies, experimental studies and physiology, and biochemistry and molecular biology. * A review on the importance of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in the interaction between host and parasite--how it is used in both the parasite 'attacking' the host, and in the host's defense mechanisms. This has implications in the evolution of parasite and host systems, and also in identifying the underlying causes of diseases caused by parasites.

Fossil Parasites, the latest edition in the Advances in Parasitology series established in 1963, contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews on all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology, including medical studies of parasites of major influence, such as plasmodium falciparum and trypanosomes. The series also contains reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which help to shape current thinking and applications. Parasitism is a dominant life history strategy and we know it has existed for millions of years. Detecting parasitism in the fossil record is problematic because we rarely see direct evidence and usually must rely on indirect evidence to infer its existence. This unique volume takes a broad and systematic view of direct and indirect evidence for parasitism in the fossil record. Expert contributors providing timely reviews of different aspects of palaeoparasitology Comprehensive treatments of taxonomic groups never before summarized Comprehensive coverage of important historical and recent advances in the field New avenues for research are explored and suggested

Control of parasitic infections of humans has progressed rapidly over the last three decades. Such advances have resulted from focal disease control efforts based on historically effective interventions to new approaches to control following intensive research and pilot programs. Control of Human Parasitic Diseases focuses on the present state of control of the significant human parasitic infectious diseases. Includes the impact of recent research findings on control strategy Discusses the health policy implications of these findings and the importance of evaluation and monitoring Highlights the lessons learned and the interactions between control programs and health systems
