Parasite Neuromusculature and Its Utility as a Drug Target by Aaron G. Maule

Book Description

Nerve and muscle systems in helminth parasites interact in a highly co-ordinated manner to control movements associated with alimentation, reproduction, locomotion and attachment. All metazoan parasites rely on some or all of these activities for their survival. For a long time it has been known that neuromuscular function in parasites is susceptible to chemotherapeutic attack, and that compromising this aspect of parasite biology is sufficient to cure many parasite infections. This volume outlines the latest research in this area, showing why this system is so amenable to drug intervention and outlining potential targets for new treatments. Written by experts in the field, this volume will be invaluable to anyone interested in the molecular biology, physiology and biochemistry of parasites as well as those looking to exploit these for the creation of new treatments.
