Emphasizing the ecology in parasite community ecology

Trends in Ecology & Evolution

Dec 2, 2006

Amy B Pedersen, Andy Fenton

Abstract

In natural systems, individuals are often co-infected by many species of parasites. However, the significance of interactions between species and the processes that shape within-host parasite communities remain unclear. Studies of parasite community ecology are often descriptive, focusi...read more

Parasite Coinfections & Comorbidities

Co-infections of a single host by multiple parasites is commonly observed. This feed focuses on parasitic co-infections and co-morbidities. Here is the latest research.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

HIV & Co-Infections

HIV co-infection worsens the histological course of other viral infections, such as HCV by increasing and accelerating the risk of cirrhosis or leading to rare but lethal fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis. Discover the latest research on HIV co-infection.

Immunomodulating Agents

Immunomodulating agents are substances that stimulate or suppresse the immune system and may help the body combat againsts cancer, infection, or other diseases. Discover the latest research on immunomodulating agents here.

Malaria

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that affects humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches. Discover the latest research on malaria here,

Schistosomiasis

Schistosomiasis is a parasitic infection that affects 200 million people and is directly responsible for an annual death of 20,000 patients. Here is the latest research.

Plasmodium Vivax Malaria

Antimalarial Agents

Antimalarial agents, also known as antimalarials, are designed to prevent or cure malaria. Discover the latest research on antimalarial agents here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Malaria Vaccines

Research for development of a malaria vaccine is currently underway to find an effective modality to control and eliminate the transmission of malaria. To date, no vaccine has been found to be efficacious in fighting against malaria. Here is the latest research on malaria vaccines.

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Plasmodium Falciparum

Malaria remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the tropics, with the parasite Plasmodium falciparum responsible for the majority of the disease burden. Discover the latest research on Plasmodium falciparum.

Ascariasis

Ascariasis is a helminthic infection of global distribution with more than 1.4 billion persons infected throughout the world. Here is the latest research.

Parasite Host Response

The parasite host response refers to the process by which the host organism responds to and interacts with the parasite it encounters. Discover the latest research on this topic in this feed.
