Parasitology is the study of parasites, their hosts and the relationship between them. It is determined by the way of the life of organism.Parasite entirely depends upon its host for the survival. Despite the parasite being the reason for various diseases, they are needed for energy flow. It is necessary evil.
Parasites have its immense influence in tropical and sub-tropical regions. Parasites reside and survive in its host causing the diseases. In order to find cure, one has to know the cause of the disease. Diagnostic Parasitology is the study of recognizing the parasites at various stages based on size, morphology, color and movement size. Techniques like fecal flotation, sugar flotation solution, direct smear and the merthiolate-iodine-formalin preservative method are used to diagnoise the parasites and its impact.
Immunoparasitology is the study of the relationship between host and parasites immunity. Parasites are the organisms that complete part or all of their life cycle within a host organism. Immunoparasitology si the branch of immunology which deals with the animal parasites and their hosts. Immunoparasitology is the study of :
- Molecular Biology of Parasites
- Functional Genomics of Parasites and Vectors
- Molecular & Cellular Biology of Tropical Diseases
Protozoology is the study of the protozoa which is also a parasite. Protozoans are the first group of organized and simplest creature in the animal kingdlom. Protozoans are unicellular organism. Their body structure forms cytoplasm body and nucleus. They can multiply by asexual method of reproduction for a long time. Examples include Amoeba, intestinal flagellates, and Balantidium coli.
- · Rhixopoda
- · Zoomastigophora
- · Ciliatea
Parasites feed and grow in the host, the major source of nourishment. This results in the deterioration of host health. Parasites range unit energetic about their host for survival.
- Parasitic Advantage
- Uptake of Nutrients
- Physiology and Metabolic Pathways
Equatorial regions are proper breeding environment for parasites. The study of the life cycle and nourishment of parasites in tropical as well as subtropical regions is called Equatorial Parasitology.
- Emerging and re-emerging pathogens
- Clinical & preventive tropical medicines
- New tools for vector control
Veterinary parasitology is the study of the relationship between parasites and animal hosts which includes domestic as well as wild animals. It is also the study of genesis and development of parasitoses in animal hosts as well as the taxonomy and systematics of parasites, including the morphology, life cycles and living needs of parasites in the environment and in the animal hosts. Data obtained from parasitological research in animals helps in veterinary practice thereby improving animal breeding. The main goal is to protect and improve the health of animals.
Epidemiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the incidence, distribution and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to health. Bacteria are microscopic, single-cell organism that survies almost everywhere in every climatic conditions. A bacterial infection is a proliferation of a harmful strain of bacteria on or inside a body. Pneumonia, meningitis and food poisoning are just a few illnesses that are caused by harmful bacteria.
Parasitic infection refers to the transmission of communicable disease to the host living organism. The parasites like Tokxoplasma gondi and Plasmodium spp will cause sickness directly, however alternative organisms will cause sickness by the toxins that they manufacture. Parasitology Conference aims to discuss the issues related to various modes of transmission of infection and ways to curbe those mode. Basic sanitary hygiene has to be maintained.
Vectors in organism transmit infectious diseases between humans or from animals to humans. They are bloodsucking insects that ingest disease-producing microorganisms throughout provender from associate infected host. The sickness is caused by pathogens and parasites in human populations. Parasitology Congress 2019 aims to deduce various ways to curb this menace through rigorous presentation through symposium, workshop, seminar and special session.
