Advances in Medical Parasitology

Parasitology is the study of parasites, and the interactions it has with it's host. It needs a sync between cell biology, ecology, microbiology, microbial physiology, biochemistry, immunology and genetics. Francesco Redi is considered to be the father of the modern Parasitology. 

Symbiosis is the way of life. Not only within parasites & microbes, but also with humans; Symbiosis is an association between 2 organisms, which are beneficial to them both. The branch of Microbial parasitology deals not only with symbiosis, but also with numerous other such associations with the organisms that sustain both outside and inside of our body, also called as host, hence the name host-pathogen interaction. These interactions commonly take place between a parasite and a host, where the parasites take dual nourishment with the host playing a major role by supporting the parasite, which are either helminths, protozoan and arthropods, which although are parasites, but do not harm the host body, rather, some of them assist the host body in regulating its biological systems. Although, they do not cause any major damage, but they are opportunistic parasites, which cause major damage to the host system primarily when the body’s defence system is weak.
