Track 1: Parasitology

Parasitology is the branch of biology concerned with the phenomenon of dependence of one living organism on another. Some parasites cause disease, while other parasites are harmless or nonpathogenic. Here we can focus on the parasites, their hosts, the environments they share and the ways in which they interact.  In field parasitology we study biology and life cycles of parasites.

People working in this field come from numerous backgrounds, including zoology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, ecology, economics, anthropology, sociology, engineering, agriculture, education, mathematics and, of course, human and veterinary medicine. Specific disciplines focus on specific aspects, thus parasitological knowledge may be fragmentary.

Track 2: Medical Protozoology

A branch of medical microbiology that deals with the study of Protozoa which are parasites of humans. The parasites of humans in the kingdom protozoa are now classified under 3 phyla: Sarcomastigophora (containing the amoebas and flagellates); Apicomplexa (containing the sporozoans); and Ciliophora (containing the ciliates).

Protozoa are ubiquitous in moist areas, including the human alimentary canal. Although most amoebas are free-living, several are found as commensal inhabitants of the intestinal tract in humans. One of these organisms Entamoeba histolytica may invade tissue and produce disease. The majority of ciliates are free living and seldom parasitize humans. Flagellates of the genus Trypanosomes and Leishmania are capable of invading the blood & tissue of humans, where they produce severe chronic illness. Others such as Trichomonas vaginalis and Giardia lamblia, inhabit the urogenital and gastrointestinal tracts and initiate disease characterized by mild to moderate morbidity but no mortality.

Track 3: Medical Helminthology

Medical helminthology is concerned with the study of helminthes or parasitic worms. Helminthes are among the common parasitic causes of human suffering. They are the cause of high morbidity and mortality of people worldwide. They cause different diseases in humans, but few helminthic infections cause life- threatening diseases. They cause anemia and malnutrition.

Track 4: Medical Entomology

Medical entomology is a science, which deals with the study of arthropods. Members of the phylum arthropoda are the most numerous and widely distributed of all animal groups. Their medical importance lies in their ability to cause morbidity and mortality, and their extensive distribution over the face of the earth. They may be found in every part of the world and in every type of environment. Many, particularly those within the class insecta and arachnida, live in close association with humans; others while primarily parasites of animals, will readily attack or feed upon humans and some may specifically adapt as human parasites.

Track 5: Bacterial Pathogenesis

The process of causing disease is termed as Pathogenesis. Pathogenicity is the capacity to initiate disease. Pathogenesis is a multi-factorial process which depends on the immune status of the host, the nature of the species or strain and the number of organisms in the initial exposure. A limited number of bacterial species are responsible for the majority of infectious diseases.

Bacterial pathogens can be classified into two broad groups, primary and opportunistic pathogens.

Primary pathogens are capable of establishing infection and causing disease in previously healthy individuals with intact immunological defenses. However, these bacteria may more readily cause disease in individuals with impaired defenses.

Opportunistic pathogens rarely cause disease in individuals’ with intact immunological and anatomical defenses. Bacteria able to cause disease only when such defenses are impaired or compromised.

Common pathogenic bacteria and the types of bacterial diseases they cause include:

  • Escherichia coli and Salmonella cause food poisoning.
  • Helicobacter pylori cause gastritis and ulcers.
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae causes the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea.  
  • Neisseria meningitidis causes meningitis.
  • Staphylococcus aureus causes a variety of infections in the body, including boils, cellulitis, abscesses, wound infections, toxic shock syndrome, pneumonia, and food poisoning.
  • Streptococcal bacteria cause a variety of infections in the body, including pneumonia, meningitis, ear infections, and strep throat.

Bacterial diseases are contagious and can result in many serious or life-threatening complications, such as blood poisoning (bacteremia), kidney failure, and toxic shock syndrome.

Track 6: Viral Pathogenesis

Viral pathogenesis is the process by which viruses produce disease in the host. The factors that determine the viral transmission, multiplication, and development of disease in the host involve complex and dynamic interactions between the virus and the susceptible host. Viruses cause disease when they breach the host's primary physical and natural protective barriers. An important aspect of viral pathogenesis is viral epidemiology. Infection in a population can be endemic, epidemic, or pandemic. Infection can be direct or indirect. Several quantitative measures are expressed as infectivity, disease index, virulence, incidence, and prevalence in terms of epidemiology.

Track 7: Fungal Pathogenesis

Fungi are everywhere. They are so widely distributed in our environment that thousands of fungal spores are inhaled or ingested every day. There are approximately 1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth, but only about 300 of those are known to make people sick. Fungal diseases are often caused by fungi that are common in the environment.

Human fungal pathogens belong to four main groups, namely zygomcetes, ascomycetes, deuteromycetes, and basidiomycetes.

Fungal diseases can be broadly classified on the basis of causative agents as:

(a) dermatophytosis, (b) histoplasmosis, (c) blastomycosis, (d) coccidiomycosis, (e) candidiasis, (f) cryptococcosis, (g) aspergillosis, (h) hyalohyphomycosis, and (i) zygomycosis.

Track 8: Parasitic Zoonoses  

A zoonotic disease is a disease spread between animals and people. Zoonotic diseases can be caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. The majority of the classic parasitic diseases due to helminthes, trematodes, cestodes, pentastomids and protozoa are zoonotic. These zoonotic diseases include many of the classic infectious diseases such as rabies and ricketsia (e.g. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever), as well as most of the “new” emerging infectious diseases such as HIV, Lyme, SARS, Ehrlichiosis and Nipah virus.

Track 9: Immunoparasitology

Immunoparasitology is "the study of the immunology of host-parasite relationships".  One important thrust in parasite research today is the development of vaccines against parasites of man and domestic animals. The existence of efficacious vaccines against viruses and bacteria provides incentive to immunoparasitologists to develop analogous protection strategies against protists and helminths. In recent years, the development of specific diagnostic tests for parasites has been one of the major successful applications derived from basic research in immunoparasitology

Track 10: Agriculture and Veterinary Parasitology

It is the study of association between parasites and animal hosts. Veterinary parasitologists care for domesticated animals used for food and work; they also care for companion animals. Veterinarians play an indirect role in human health when they control parasites in nonhuman animals that are transmissible to humans.

Here we consider parasites of domestic and wildlife animals. Scientists study the genesis and development of parasitoses in animal hosts, as well as the taxonomy and systematics of parasites. Parasites are responsible for major economic losses in food–producing animals.

Data obtained from parasitological research in animals helps in veterinary practice and improves animal breeding. The major goal of veterinary parasitology is to protect animals and improve their health and also important for public health.

Track 11: Tropical Diseases

Tropical diseases encompass all diseases that occur solely, or principally, in the tropics.  Insects such as mosquitoes and flies are by far the most common disease carrier, or vector. These insects may carry a parasite, bacterium or virus that is infectious to humans and animals. The most prevalent infectious diseases that thrive in hot, humid conditions are malaria, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, onchocerciasis, lymphatic filariasis, Chagas disease, African trypanosomiasis, and dengue.

Track 12: Vector-borne diseases

Vector-borne diseases are illnesses caused by pathogens and parasites in human populations. They can transmit infectious diseases between humans or from animals to humans. Every year there are more than 1 billion cases and over 1 million deaths from vector-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, schistosomiasis, human African trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and onchocerciasis, globally.

Track 16: Diagnostic Parasitology

Control and eventual elimination of human parasitic diseases requires novel approaches, particularly in the areas of diagnostics, mathematical modelling, monitoring, evaluation, surveillance and public health response.Recent developments in new diagnostic tools, however, have opened new avenues for a vast improvement in parasite detection. Firstly, a number of newer serology-based assays that are highly specific and sensitive have emerged, such as the Falcon assay screening test ELISA (FAST-ELISA) , Dot-ELISA , rapid antigen detection system (RDTS) , and luciferase immunoprecipitation system (LIPS) . Secondly, molecular-based approaches such as loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) , real-time polymerase chain reaction , and Luminex  have shown a high potential for use in parasite diagnosis with increased specificity and sensitivity. Thirdly, proteomic technology has also been introduced for the discovery of biomarkers using tissues or biological fluids from the infected host. 

Track 17: Parasitic Diseases: Control

Many tools are present to control spreading of parasitic diseases. Those controls that are found in today’s arsenal has their own advantages and drawbacks. In this section some of the major approaches that have been used to control vectors and some that show promise for the future are presented.

Market Analysis Report

Parasitic diseases are primarily diseases of poverty. At serious risk are individuals, communities and countries least able to afford the costs of treatment or prevention. In turn, economic development projects which aim to increase income levels may lead to negative results because of increased transmission of parasitic diseases often results.

The global IVD infectious disease market was valued at over US$ 13 billion in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% over the forecast period. Rising prevalence of infectious diseases, growing base of geriatric population, lower immunity levels, and rising awareness among people about communicable diseases are estimated to be high impact rendering drivers.

The global market for infectious disease diagnostic, vaccine and pharmaceutical products was US$  59.2 billion in 2011 and US$ 66.4 billion in 2012.  Market growth looks promising, the overall market value for 2017 is projected to be US$ 96.8 billion after increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8%.

Parasitic infections affect millions of people every year:

  • More than 300,000 persons living are infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, the cause of Chagas disease.
  • At least 1,000 people are hospitalized with neurocysticercosis every year.
  • Each year at least 70 people, most of them children, are blinded by the parasite that causes Toxocariasis.
  • More than 60 million persons are chronically infected with Toxoplasma gondii.
  • Each year 1.1 million people are newly infected with Trichomonas.

WHO estimates that about 655,000 people die from malaria every year, though a recent systematic analysis suggested the true annual mortality is closer to 1.24 million (Murray et al., 2012). Inexpensive oral drugs—chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine-were once common treatment for malaria, but resistance to these treatments is widespread (WHO, 2012c). Since 2001, the WHO has recommended treating malaria with artemisinin combination therapies (WWARN, 2012c). The use of artemisinin combination drugs as first-line therapy is essential to malaria control. As of 2006, however, there is evidence of artemisinin resistance in Southeast Asia (WWARN, 2012c).

Veterinary parasitology laboratory market:

In 2015, North America dominated the veterinary reference laboratory market followed by Europe, Asia-pacific, and Rest of the World. Increasing demand for animal-derived food products, rising companion animal healthcare expenditure, growing number of veterinary practitioners and their income levels, and rising awareness about zoonotic diseases are factors driving the growth of this market. On the other hand, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This can be mainly attributed to the growing livestock population, increasing pet adoption, rising awareness about animal health, rising demand of animal derived products, and growing per capita animal health expenditure in this region.

The global veterinary parasitology laboratory market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% from 2016 to 2021 to reach USD 2.76 Billion by 2021. Factors such as growing demand for pet insurance and rising animal health expenditure, increasing demand for animal-derived food products, growth in the number of veterinary practitioners and their income levels in developed economies, and increasing incidence of zoonotic diseases are the major factors driving the growth of the global market.

*Registered hospitals are the hospitals that meet AHA's criteria for registration as a hospital facility.

**Communityhospitals are defined as all nonfederal, short-term general, and other special hospitals. Other special hospitals include obstetrics and gynecology; eye, ear, nose, and throat; rehabilitation; orthopedic; and other individually described specialty services. Community hospitals include academic medical centers or other teaching hospitals if they are nonfederal short-term hospitals. Excluded are hospitals not accessible by the general public, such as prison hospitals or college infirmaries.

***System is defined by AHA as either a multihospital or a diversified single hospital system. A multihospital system is two or more hospitals owned, leased, sponsored, or contract managed by a central organization. Single, freestanding hospitals may be categorized as a system by bringing into membership three or more, and at least 25 percent, of their owned or leased non-hospital preacute or postacute health care organizations. System affiliation does not preclude network participation.

**** Network is a group of hospitals, physicians, other providers, insurers and/or community agencies that work together to coordinate and deliver a broad spectrum of services to their community. Network participation does not preclude system affiliation.

Prevention and Control of Parasitic Diseases

With strong public health programs, political will, financial backing, proper sanitation, mass drug administration and insect control certain human parasitic diseases can be controlled and even eliminated. For eg, in the US mosquito abatement programs after World War II almost eliminated malaria from the country, and hookworm elimination programs in the early 20th century significantly reduced hookworm infections in the South. These efforts had profound effects on the local economy, health and wellbeing. However, for a variety of reasons (political, financial, ecological and biological) it is difficult to control or eliminate certain parasitic pathogens from a region, hence there is need for new cost effective therapies for human parasitic disease.
