Advances in Trematode Biology

Trematodology is the study of a class of medically important parasitic, flat-bodied worms. It has made significant advances over the past ten years. The tremendous amount of information accumulated from research discoveries and technical developments related to trematode biology will be focussed in this track. Advances in Trematode Biology presents a thorough treatment of modern trematodology, including principles and practices. It updates researchers, practitioners, and students with new information in immunology, biochemistry, physiology, and molecular biology. The track includes information on parasitological techniques, emphasizing species of medical and veterinary importance which is a key reference for parasitologists, biologists, medical, and veterinary personnel. 

Trematodes, or flukes, are parasitic flatworms with unique life cycles involving sexual reproduction in mammalian and other vertebrate definitive hosts and asexual reproduction in snail intermediate hosts. These organisms are divided into four groups on the basis of their final habitats in humans; the hermaphroditic liver flukes which reside in the bile ducts and infect humans on ingestion of Fasciola or raw fish Clonorchis and Opisthorchis; the hermaphroditic intestinal fluke Fasciolopsis, which infects humans on ingestion of water chestnuts; the hermaphroditic lung fluke Paragonimus, which infects humans on ingestion of raw crabs or crayfish and the bisexual blood flukes Schistosoma which infect humans by direct penetration through the skin.
