Parasitic Nematodes: Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Immunology

Malcolm M. Kennedy (Editor), William Harnett (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Inclusive of 20 chapters subdivided into 4 parts, this book's second edition covers latest updates in the current understanding of the molecular biology, biochemistry and immunology of parasitic nematodes of humans, domestic animals and plants. Specific topics discussed in each chapter include horizontal gene transfer, immune expulsion mechanisms, genetics of human susceptibility to nematode infections, nematode protein structure, nematode bacterial symbionts, and host immune system modulation by nematode parasites and their therapeutic potential for immunological diseases.
