About this book

The deadly nature of the Theileria parasite and the exquisite cunning, displayed when survival strategies are called for, inspire both awe and fascination, if not admiration, among field and laboratory scientists. Its negative impact on livestock production with resulting economical losses, however, undoubtedly affects the quality of human life. This book will provide detailed insight into the state-of-the art research, ongoing in different laboratories, aimed at unravelling the intricacies and molecular basis of the parasite as well as host-parasite interactions, that govern the immune responses and pathogenesis of Theileriosis.
