About this book

Parasitic zoonoses, the parasitic diseases transmitted between humans and other vertebrate animals, are widespread and the increasing pace in internationalization changes in diet and easy movement from one part of the world to another has caused them to be more prevalent. This text examines the pathology of parasitic zoonoses and recent trends in research of imported parasites; the classification of phenotypes of anisakid nematodes; the immunohistopathological diagnostic method; and molecular technology to detect and diagnose parasites. Papers on parasitology and international health, and the pathology of cerebral malaria are also included.


Pathology and differential diagnoses of internationalized zoonoses; parasitology and international health; pathology of parasitic zoonoses; the taxonomical study of diphyllobothriid cestodes with special reference to diphyllobothreum nihonkaiense in Japan; histopathological and immunological diagnosis for zoonotic parasitoses; the pathology of cerebral malaria; histopathological diagnosis of protozoan infection using patients' sera; molecular genetics in anisakid nematodes from Pacific Boreal region; internationalization of anisakidosis; current clinical and morphological differential diagnostic method on anisakidosis.
