The deadly nature of the Theileria parasite and the exquisite cunning, displayed when survival strategies are called for, inspire both awe and fascination, if not admiration, among field and laboratory scientists. Its negative impact on livestock production with resulting economical losses, however, undoubtedly affects the quality of human life. This book will provide detailed insight into the state-of-the art research, ongoing in different laboratories, aimed at unravelling the intricacies and molecular basis of the parasite as well as host-parasite interactions, that govern the immune responses and pathogenesis of Theileriosis. Theileria, volume three of "World Class Parasites", is written for researchers, students and scholars who enjoy reading research that has a major impact on human health, or agricultural productivity, and against which we have no satisfactory defense. It is intended to supplement more formal texts that cover taxonomy, life cycles, morphology, vector distribution, symptoms and treatment. It integrates vector, pathogen and host biology and celebrates the diversity of approach that comprises modern parasitological research.

This book provides an in-depth yet concise overview of the most common and emerging protozoa that cause diseases in both farm animals and companion animals. As outlined in the concise introduction, pathogenic protozoans represent an evolutionary highly diverse and little understood group of disease-causing microorganisms. For each of the featured parasitic unicellular eukaryotes, it discusses the morphology, lifecycle, epidemiology and host-pathogen interactions. In addition, the book highlights the latest developments in diagnostic methods, as well as prevention and treatment strategies. Thorough information on genomes and genetic manipulation strategies for some of the protozoa covered in this book is also included. Infections involving parasitic protozoa can cause productivity losses and/or reduce the quality of life of infected animals. Some infections are zoonotic, posing an on-going public health threat. In most cases, prevention and treatment are either non-existent or need considerable improvement. On the other hand, a great deal of research has recently been conducted on these organisms, yielding valuable new information on their global distribution and revealing the mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions at the molecular level – and essential insights that can be used for the development of new control tools. This book includes extensive information on both basic aspects and recent scientific discoveries on these protozoa and thus constitutes a unique resource for students, veterinarians, and researchers alike.

Achievements and progress in genome mapping and the genomics of microbes supersede by far those for higher plants and animals, in part due to their enormous economic implication but also smaller genome size. In the post-genomic era, whole genome sequences of animal-associated microbes are providing clues to depicting the genetic basis of the complex host-pathogen relationships and the evolution of parasitism; and to improving methods of controlling pathogens. This volume focuses on a globally important group of intracellular prokaryotic pathogens which affect livestock animals. These include Brucella, Mycobacterium, Anaplasma and Ehrlichia, as well as the protozoan pathogens Cryptosporidium and Theileria, for which genome sequence data is available. Insights from comparative genomics of the microbes described provide clues to the adaptation involved in host-microbe interactions, as well as resources potentially useful for application in future research and product development.

Within the last 10 years, the immune system of ruminants, especially T cells and their interactions with other cells, has been an important topic of study for veterinary immunologists and an area of interest for medical and fundamental immunologists. This book brings together all the latest data on ruminant cell-mediated immunology. In the first half of the book, leukocytes and their membrane molecules and cytokines are reviewed. Markers, tissue distribution, functional characterization, ontogeny, cytokines, and histocompatibility are covered in depth in separate chapters. In the second half of the book, cell-mediated immune responses against infectious diseases such as East Coast fever, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, foot and mouth disease, maedi-visna, and gastrointestinal nematodes are analyzed. The application of cytokines to ruminants against infectious diseases is also reviewed.

Updated and much expanded, the Second Edition of Parasitic Protozoa is designed to be useful to physicians, veterinarians, and research scientists concerned with diseases caused by protozoa in man, and in domestic and wild animals including fish, mollusks and insects, as well as the more commonly considered vertebrate animals. Each section contains information on disease pathogens, treatment, diagnosis, and epidemiology of the diseases caused by the various protozoans. The book is not limited to these medically-oriented subjects, but treats taxonomy, morphology, and metabolism of the organisms in such a way as to be of interest to scientists and graduate students working in the field of protozoology. The entire edition, published in ten volumes, is arranged so that subjects of common interest occupy individual volumes.

Most of the important infectious diseases that threaten livestock--including heartwater, bluetongue, African horse sickness, African swine fever, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and trypanosomiasis --occur endemically on the Southern African subcontinent and are responsible for major stock losses annually. Infectious Diseases of Livestock offers a comprehensive overview of the factors which influence the occurrence of such diseases, focusing in particular on arthropod vectors (ticks, tsetse flies, culidoides midges, mosquitoes, and biting flies), herd immunity and immunization strategies, resistance of animal breeds to infectious agents and their vectors, and the role played by wild animals in the spread of infectious diseases. Throughout, diseases are grouped according to their causal infectious agents and are treated in terms of their history, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, pathology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and control. The book concludes with a discussion of diseases of unknown etiologies and important disease complexes such as mastitis and congenital viral teratology. Well-written and completely up-to-date, this book is the reference that students, professionals, and researchers in infectious diseases, pathology, tropical medicine, and veterinary research have been waiting for.

Emerging Infectious Diseases offers an introduction to emerging and reemerging infectious disease, focusing on significant illnesses found in various regions of the world. Many of these diseases strike tropical regions or developing countries with particular virulence, others are found in temperate or developed areas, and still other microbes and infections are more indiscriminate. This volume includes information on the underlying mechanisms of microbial emergence, the technology used to detect them, and the strategies available to contain them. The author describes the diseases and their causative agents that are major factors in the health of populations the world over. The book contains up-to-date selections from infectious disease journals as well as information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, MedLine Plus, and the American Society for Microbiology. Perfect for students or those new to the field, the book contains Summary Overviews (thumbnail sketches of the basic information about the microbe and the associated disease under examination), Review Questions (testing students' knowledge of the material), and Topics for Further Discussion (encouraging a wider conversation on the implications of the disease and challenging students to think creatively to develop new solutions). This important volume provides broad coverage of a variety of emerging infectious diseases, of which most are directly important to health practitioners in the United States.
