Written by internationally respected experts, Handbook of Human Helminthiasis provides information essential in the development of an integrated approach to the prevention, control and treatment of disease caused by endoparasitic helminths. The text is divided into sections dealing with the main groups of helminth infections and the diseases they induce. Each section addresses diagnostic techniques, epidemiology/distribution, pathogenesis, morbidity/pathology, treatment, prevention, and control. Emphasis is placed on methods for reducing morbidity, interrupting and reducing transmission, and techniques to prevent infection. This book is intended to be a practical manual for all involved in reducing the burden of disease and the economic costs of human helminthiasis.
