About this book

Fast advances have been made in the field of protozoology, specifically around the area of emerging protozoan pathogens. This timely volume provides the reader with a current understanding of factors such as the biology, genomics, epidemiology, pathogenesis and treatments of this important group of pathogens. In order to provide a more useful reference for less experienced readers, there are also sections on general properties of protozoa and the human immune response, to aid further understanding of the specialist topics on the emerging pathogens. "Emerging Protozoan Pathogens" is intended to be used by microbiologists and molecular and cell biologists at advanced undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as health professionals and researchers who are interested in these pathogens. The material covered in the book makes an ideal platform on which to base further research projects.

!any fresh angle that helps reinvigorate our interest in, and understanding of, protozoan infections is to be welcome and Khan's book certainly fills a niche. Parasitology
