About this book

This volume combines both taxonomic and medical approaches and is suitable for both science and medical students. Each chapter is devoted to a different protozoan pathogen. Topics pertaining to the relationship between protozoa and disease include the use of molecular lab techniques in the study and diagnosis of protozoan pathogens, and the mechanisms of drug action and resistance. At the end of the book is an extensive glossary of molecular biology, immunology, and medical terms.
