Pathogenesis of Leishmaniasis : New Developments in Research Hardback
Edited by Abhay Satoskar, Ravi Durvasula
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.
