Parasitology, the conventional branch of microbiology deals with parasites, diseases causing factors, biological events and parasite-host interactions. Recently, the exciting advances in Microbiology and Medical Microbiology improved the understanding of parasites and parasitic diseases. Since the parasites are cosmopolitan, they offer great challenges to the researchers, the advances in cellular and molecular biology, physiology, genetics and computational science provide the promising breakthroughs in the field of parasitology.
Over a decade of publication history, OMICS International understand the need of a common venue to discuss the global health scenario, initiated a new journal Archives of Parasitology that aims to bring the parasitologists together to exchange and update current knowledge. The journal also offers novel and innovative findings in the allied fields such as immunology, biochemistry, also.
Archives of Parasitology invites cell and molecular biologists, microbiologists, physicians and clinicians that are interested in parasitology to submit original reports, expert reviews, opinions, commentaries and editorials for publication.
Archives of Parasitology is an international peer reviewed journal headed by world-class editorial team supported by expert review panels. The open access journal is bringing the opinions together for the researchers those who are excited about the advances in parasitology.
The Archives of Parasitology Journal employs the Editorial Tracking System for online manuscript submission, review and tracking. All the manuscripts submitted in the journal are subjected to the peer review process, done by the editorial board members of journal or outside experts. Approval of at least two independent reviewers is compulsory for the publication of any citable manuscript.
Parasitology is a branch of Biology dealing with parasites and the effects of parasitism. The main objective of Parasitology is the study of parasites, their hosts, the relationship between them and different diseases associated with them. A parasite is an organism that lives in a host and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. Parasites can cause disease in humans. Broadly, the parasite are belongs to Bacteria, Fungi and animal classes such as Protozoa, Helminths and Nematodes.
Parasitic disease is an infectious disease, which is transmitted by parasite. Malaria is one of the deadliest parasitic diseases. Parasitic infection can be caused by three types of organisms
Helminths are multi cellular organisms that can live in or outside of your body. Helminths are parasitic worms that feed on a living host to gain protection, while causing poor nutrient absorption, weakness and disease in the host. They include tapeworms, flatworms, roundworms, and thorny-headed worms. Many helminths are free-living organisms in aquatic and terrestrial environments and others occur as parasites in plants and animals.
Lyme borreliosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria of the Borrelia type and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks. These tiny arachnids are found in grassy and wooded areas. The typical symptoms include headache, fever, fatigue and erythema migrans which is itchy or painful.
Plasmodium is a parasite which causes “Malaria”. These parasites are transmitted to humans through the bites of female infected Anopheles mosquitoes. When this mosquito bites, the parasite is released into the bloodstream. It causes symptoms like flu, such as fever, muscle pain, chills, headache and vomiting.
Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania and transmitted to humans by the bite of infected female phlebotomine sandflies. There are 3 main forms of leishmaniases – visceral (also known as kala-azar and the most serious form of the disease), cutaneous (the most common), and mucocutaneous.
Anthrax is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It occurs primarily in animals and transmissible to humans especially contact with contaminated animal substances, such as hair, feces, or hides, and is characterized with ulcerative skin lesions.
Medical Parasitology is the branch of sciences dealing with parasites which infect humans, the diseases caused by them, clinical picture and the response produced by humans against them. It is also concerned with various methods of their diagnosis, treatment and their prevention & control. A parasite is an organism that lives on or within another organism called the host. There are different types of parasites and hosts. Parasites are either unicellular (protozoa) or multicellular (helminthes and arthropods). They may live inside the host called endoparasites or on the host surface called ectoparasites.
Veterinary parasitology is the science which deals with the animal parasites. More specifically it deals with the interactions between a host and the population of parasites that are found on or in that host. Veterinary Parasitology covers all the aspects of parasites of domestic animals and their hosts that include the physiology, biochemistry, morphology and life cycles of parasites, the pathological, immunological and clinical responses of the host to the presence of parasites. It also covers the treatment and control of parasitic infections and diseases and the public health aspects of parasites of domestic animals that may also infect humans.
