Trichinella and Trichinellosis provides an up-to-date account of the nematode Trichinella spp., including infections and diseases caused by this parasite in both animals and humans. This book will fill the long gap in time during which an exhaustive monograph on this subject has been missing in the international literature. The chapters have been written by the most prolific researchers in the world on the different aspects of Trichinella and trichinellosis.
This book serves as an original resource for research on Trichinella and trichinellosis, exploring cutting-edge advances on such parasites and the infections they cause.
This book will be a valuable resource for students, biologists, epidemiologists, veterinarians, physicians, and scientists involved in the study of the parasites of the Trichinella genus and their related diseases. It will be particularly helpful for those who are beginning their research in this fascinating field.
