Advances in Microbial Parasitology

All human beings have a symbiotic relationship with almost every living creature in the world. We don’t exist separately from them but we require other animal species to help and provide us in a useful way so that we can be befitted. Hence this is when the branch of Microbial parasitology comes into the picture. It is the branch where we deal with the organisms that thrive outside and inside our body. Our body is called the host, thus it is known as a host-parasite relationship.
Understanding the host and parasite relationship:
Living organisms that live inside our body and take dual nourishment and various other requirements from the hosts body are called parasites. Over here, the host plays a major role and the host supports that parasite. There are different forms of parasite that live inside the human body, they are helminthes, protozoan and even athropods.
The parasites that live inside our body most relatively do not cause harm to the host’s body. In fact some of them help the body to regulate its biological systems and structures. The parasites that do not cause harm to the body and remain dormant are called non parasites.
These parasites sometimes cause a major havoc when the body’s defence system remains weak and are less tolerant to various outside elements.  
Mutualism is a type of association where both the host along with the parasite benefit from each other and it is also seen that that cannot do without one another and one must co-exist with the other. Here, a very important thing to be noted is that both the host along with the parasite do not cause any trouble of harm to each other.  
For example: The relationship between a specific type of flagellated protozoan species living inside the gut of termites. Over here the flagellated protozoan depends solely upon the termite for it carbohydrate diet thereby getting their much needed nutrients. The protozoans in turn help in secreting and synthesizing cellulases which are utilised by the termites in their digestion.

Parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host. Some organisms called parasites are actually commensals, in that they neither benefit nor harm their host (for example, Entamoeba coli). Although parasitology had its origins in the zoologic sciences, it is today an interdisciplinary field, greatly influenced by microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, and other life sciences.A misconception about parasitic infections/worms is that they occur only in tropical areas.
NOAH represents the companies that research, develop, manufacture and market animal medicines in the UK. In the 12 months to March 2015 NOAH’s members accounted for £610 million of sales.  Following inclusion of new members to the survey it now represents in excess of 90% of the UK animal health market (at ex-manufacturers prices, net of all discounts).
