By J.P. Kreier, J.R. Baker

It's now 17 years because the junior author's ebook Parasitic protozoa was once first released, and thirteen years because it acquired restricted revision. The research of symbiotic protozoa has in the meantime stepped forward, and lots more and plenty of the content material of the sooner booklet has been outdated if now not displaced by way of contemporary wisdom. We think that there's nonetheless a spot for an introductory textbook, conventionally prepared on a taxonomic body­ paintings, in this so much interesting crew of organisms. it may complement (certainly now not supplant) extra glossy remedies from varied angles. A mountain seems very assorted if one ways it from various aspects, even though a real photo of that mountain should be equipped up merely via the arduous summation of the perspectives supplied through all ways. The immunology and the chemotherapy of protozoal infections are topics so advanced that we don't suggest to aim to surround them during this ebook. We point out in short the almost always used healing compounds within the a variety of chapters that stick with, with out giving information of dosage schedules. extra info on immunology and chemo­ treatment will be received from the books indexed on the finish of the advent; the knowledge we supply on chemotherapy is essentially drawn from that of James & Gilles. This publication should be considered as an evolutionary descendant of the sooner "Parasitic protozoa", stated above, widely revised and lots more and plenty extra totally illustrated. we are hoping that it'll end up as necessary as its predecessor seems to were.

Analysis of 14 enzymes of T. rangeli by starch gel electrophoresis showed only isocitrate dehydrogenenase (ICD) to be polymorphic (Holguin et al, 1987). Two electrophoretic variants of this enzyme were observed in the 16 biologically confirmed strains of T. rangeli obtained from distinctive écologie settings including various sylvatic and domiciliary habitats. This finding is in contrast to the finding of a high degree of polymorphism in enzymes from T. cruzi strains isolated in Colombia (Saravia et al, 1987) and elsewhere (Miles et al, 1980,1984; Tibayrenc and Desjeux, 1983).
