Track 1: General Parasitology

Parasitology is the scientific study of parasites. Parasitology studies evaluate the relationship between parasitic organisms and their hosts and also describe different types of parasites. It has applications in human and veterinary medicine. The study of parasites draws on other scientific disciplines, such as microbiology, organic chemistry, and cytology. Though the name parasite has negative connotations, not all parasites adversely affect their hosts. In some cases, parasitology demonstrates how the relationship of a parasite to its host is mutually beneficial, called mutualism. The parasite and the host may gain protection from each other’s presence or provide each other with food. When parasite and host cannot exist apart, their relationship is called symbiotic. The two organisms are equally and mutually dependent upon each other. Parasitology, when used in applications in human and veterinary medicines, tends to examine the relationship between parasites that invade and cause damage to the animal or human body. For example, insects that are vectors for disease are studied to see to what degree they pass those diseases on to humans or animals.

Track 2: Comparative Protozoology

The protozoa are an eclectic assemblage of organisms encompassing a wide range of single-celled and multiple-celled colonial organisms lacking tissue organization, but exhibiting remarkably refined biological behaviour. In some modern classifications, they are classified as a subkingdom among the Protista (eukaryotic single-celled organisms). Although they are not considered a formal category by some taxonomists and some biologists consider the name inappropriate (inferring that they are the first unicellular animals, although some photosynthesize), it is still convenient to consider this group of organisms as an informal collection under the heading of protozoa. Their cosmopolitan distribution, significant ecological role in mineral recycling and enhancement of carbon flow through lower trophic levels of food webs, and remarkable cellular physiology to enhance survival in diverse environments make them significant organisms for biological investigation.

Track 3: Pathogenic Flagellates and Ciliates

The flagellates are a grade of organisation. Traditionally, they are those protozoa which spend most of their existence moving or feeding with a small number of flagella. This type of organization is the most widespread among protists. In addition, alveolus’s and stramenopiles include heterotrophic flagellates, as do several groups often thought of as algae (dinoflagellates, euglenas’, and crypto monads). Some of the amoebae revert to flagellated forms for part of their life history or have non-functional flagella attached to their bodies. Many parasites which affect human health or economy are flagellates. They include the relatively benign Giardia and the more damaging trypanosomes and leishmaniases. Flagellates are the major consumers of primary and secondary production in aquatic ecosystems - consuming bacteria and other protists and ensuring the recycling of limiting nutrients. The Ciliata, or Ciliophora, includes about 7000 known species of some of the most complex single-celled organisms ever. Some  of the surface of a ciliate is covered with relatively short, dense hair like structures, the cilia, which beat to propel the ciliate through the water and/or to draw in food particles. Ciliates include some of the largest free-living protists. They are abundant in almost every environment with liquid water: ocean waters, marine sediments, lakes, ponds, and rivers, and even soils. Because individual ciliate species vary greatly in their tolerance of pollution, the ciliates found in a body of water can be used to gauge the degree of pollution quickly.

Track 4: The Coccidian Parasites

Coccidians are complex unicellular parasites of vertebrates and invertebrates. The parasites and  their host intracellular. Coccidian parasites are responsible for several of the most severe diseases known in animals and man. For example in domestic animals, Eimeria tenella is responsible for considerable decrease in growth and development of domestic poultry flocks by damage caused to the intestinal lining during infection. The traditional Coccidians (Eucoccidia) have been described in all classes of vertebrates such as in fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals including humans. However the second Coccidians (Adeleorina) includes species associated with invertebrates as well as parasites of vertebrates. The latter group infects blood cells of vertebrates and is collectively known as "Haemogregarines". Veterinary important parasites in the genus Haepatozoon belong to this group. Parasites within the coccidian group can be either monoxenous, parasitizing a single host throughout their lifecycle, or heterogeneous whereby the parasite will parasite multiple hosts. For instance, species belonging to the genera Eimeria and Isopoda are well known monoxenous parasites, while those of Toxoplasma make use of an intermediate host. It is thought that Coccidians that have heterogeneous lifecycles can have a wide range of intermediate hosts, but they commonly have a narrow range for the final host. As with the rest of the phylum Apicomplexa, classification within the coccidian groups is largely a 'mess' due to incorrect or misinterpreted morphological data gathered over the years. Increasingly, clade support is being sought to characterise parasites with the advent of molecular biology. Due to the escalating amount of information being made available on the apicomplexans, such standardisation is vital to enable arrangement of this information for further use.

Track 5: Medical Helminthology

The field of medicine that pertains to helminths (worms) capable of disease in people. The public health impact of medical helminths is appreciable. Two billion people are infected by soil-transmitted helminths such as Ascaris, hookworms, and Trichuris trichiura and by schistosomes. Early   childhood   infections by soil-transmitted helminths delays physical and cognitive development. Other widespread helminthic infections include onchocerciasis, lymphatic filariasis, dracunculiasis (Guinea worm disease), and food-borne Trematode and tapeworm infections. All of these infections cause chronic morbidity and debilitation. Medical helminths need to develop in a parasitized host, and sometimes this involves several disparate hosts. Helminth parasites are more complex than free-living helminths, because they have evolved mechanisms to deal with the different environments of their various hosts and living conditions. They have developed host-finding behaviours, exquisite migration patterns within each host, and the ability to evade the host immune and protective responses.

Track 6: Advances in Trematode Biology

Trematodology is the study of a class of medically important parasitic, flat-bodied worms. It has made significant advances over the past ten years. The tremendous amount of information accumulated from research discoveries and technical developments related to Trematode biology will be focussed in this track. Advances  in Trematode Biology presents a thorough treatment of modern Trematodology, including principles and practices. It updates researchers, practitioners, and students with new information in immunology, biochemistry, physiology, and molecular biology. The track includes information on parasitological techniques, emphasizing species of medical and veterinary importance which is a key reference for parasitologists, biologists, medical, and veterinary personnel.

Track 7: Nematology: Fundamentals and Approaches

Nematodes are non-segmented helminths and relatively simple structured organisms. They possess bilateral symmetry and a complete digestive tract with oral and anal openings; they taper to a relative point at both ends. They are also found to have separate sexes, with the male being smaller than the female, ranging in size from a few millimetres to over a meter in length. Their cylindrical non-segmented bodies allow them to be easily distinguishable from other helminths. Nematodes are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. A handful of soil will contain thousands of the microscopic worms, many of them parasites of insects, plants or animals. Free-living species are abundant, including nematodes that feed on bacteria, fungi, and other nematodes, yet the vast majority of species encountered are poorly understood biologically. There are nearly 20,000 described species classified in the phylum Nemata.

Track 8: Cestodes of Mammals

The Cestodes (or tapeworms) form a group of worms, exhibiting two unmistakable morphological features; they all possess flat, ribbon like bodies and lack an alimentary canal. Adult tapeworms usually inhabit the alimentary canal of their hosts (though they occasionally are found in the bile or pancreatic ducts) and attach themselves to the mucosa by means of a scolex. Despite the lack of a digestive system they do absorb food from the hosts intestine thereby providing the tapeworms a habitat that is associated with high nutritional levels, feeding the tapeworms high growth rate. Larvae on the other hand show a wide range of habitat preferences, being found in almost any organ of both vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. Clinically important Cestodes pathogenic to man are Tenia solium (pork tapeworm), T. saginata (beef tapeworm), Diphyllobothrium lattum (fish or broad tapeworm), Hymenolepis nana (dwarf tapeworm) and Echinococcus granulosus and E. multilocularis (hydatid).

Track 9: Medical Entomology

Arthropods are one of the most remarkable creatures on the earth, and they merit study for at least two major reasons. First, arthropods have unsurpassed diversity and niches; because of their extensive variation. These animals can provide an in-depth understanding of nature and the many ways that biological problems have been met. Arthropods fly, jump, hide, they see ultraviolet light, they produce and moult an extraordinary exoskeleton, and they posses’ magnificent colours and shapes. Few habitats exclude arthropods. In withstanding harsh environments, they are unparalleled. Many entomologists were concerned about the competition for food between human kind and arthropods, and some entomologists believed that arthropod control was imperative for survival of human race. Although such a position may seem somewhat extreme, arthropods do consume or spoil sufficient crops and products to feed many millions of people who starve each year. And arthropod/ insect –transmitted diseases, to humans, animals and ,crops, remain a threat to health and civilizations. As a result, it is good to understand “what arthropods are to the layman”.

Track 10: Diagnostic Parasitology

Diagnosis of parasitic infections in small animals is challenging, interesting, and fun, and involves the recognition of parasite stages based on size, morphology, colour, and movement. Size and morphology are the major diagnostic parameters, and a calibrated microscope is the essential tool in the diagnostic laboratory. The faecal flotation technique is used routinely for the diagnosis of most parasites that reside within the gastrointestinal tract. The specific gravity and type of solution used often will influence the results obtained. Other techniques for diagnosis of specific gastrointestinal parasites include the direct smear and the methylate-iodine-formalin preservative method for diagnosis of Giardia sp, the Bergmann technique for diagnosis of lungworm and other live larvae, the direct sedimentation technique for diagnosis of Trematode eggs, the ether-formalin-sedimentation technique for diagnosis of Trematode eggs and concentrating protozoan cysts from faeces with high fat content, and the McMaster technique, a dilution modification of the faecal flotation technique. Techniques for evaluation of parasites in blood include the Knott's test, haematocrit method, and direct blood smear for diagnosis of microfilariae and thick and thin stained blood smears for diagnosis of Babesia sp, Haemobartonella sp, Cytauxzoon felis, Hepatozoon canis, and Trypanosome cruzi. Tissue impression smears are used commonly for the diagnosis of Leis mania sp in dogs and biopsy specimens or aspirates are used for the diagnosis of Pneumocystis carinii. Diagnosis of acute toxoplasmosis can be accomplished with peritoneal and thoracic fluids, and organisms occasionally are detected in blood or spinal fluid. Serological tests for many parasitic diseases have been developed and often are used as supportive diagnostic tests in diagnostic parasitology.

 Track 11: Market Analysis and Research

Apart from the fact that vaccines began to be developed much later than chemotherapeutic drugs, a number of additional factors have affected the progress of parasitic vaccine development. Moreover, and in contrast to viruses and bacteria, even the simplest parasites and their life cycles are highly complex, and there is a general lack of precise understanding of the host/parasite interaction. Owing to the complex nature of parasites, the immune system is confronted with a highly diverse and plastic antigen repertoire. A number of biological characteristics perpetuate this diversity. In general, vaccines can be expected to induce a narrow spectrum of protection, often restricted to a single species or strain, whereas, in many cases, the actions of chemotherapeutics transcend the species level. Broadening the spectrum of protective immunity is a major issue in vaccine development.

Track 12: Vaccines, Drug Development and Control Measures

Currently disease control and treatment of parasitic infections focuses on chemotherapy, but re-infection often occurs without continued treatment, making vaccination a far preferable option as a simple, one-step procedure to interrupt transmission. Many advances are under way in parasite genomics, as well as new vaccine delivery systems. Malaria is a subversive, ignored, yet common cause of death throughout the world. It causes over one million deaths per year, making it one of the greatest silent killers of humans. However, there are certain steps that can be taken to control its endemicity. Unlike some infectious diseases whose frequency are declining, due to prevention efforts and scientific advances in treatment and vaccines, malaria prevalence continues to rise due to wide-spread resistance to many of the current drugs. There are no successful malaria vaccines. Hence, there is an emerging need for scientific research in these fields for the well-being of mankind.

SUMMARY:

Medical Parasitology is the science dealing with parasites that infect man, causing disease and misery in most countries of the tropics. There are different types of parasites and hosts. They plague billions of people, kill millions annually, and inflict debilitating injuries such as blindness and disfiguration on additional millions. World Health Organization estimates that one person in every four harbors parasitic worms. Human parasites are either unicellular (protozoa) or multicellular (helminthes and arthropods). The parasites may live inside the host (endoparasites) or on the host surface (ectoparasites). Diagnosis of parasitic diseases depends on several laboratory methods, imaging techniques and endoscopy in addition to clinical picture and geographic location. Parasitic diseases may be presented by a wide variety of clinical manifestations according to the tissue invaded. Recently, nanotechnology can be applied as diagnostic procedures utilizing nanodevices. Control and prevention of parasitic diseases depend on the interactions among many factors such as the environment, the human behavior, and socio-cultural factors that determine transmission and persistence of parasites. Study of these in complex infections helps us to improve the quality and quantity of these activities so that man can be benefited. Hence there is a need for the co-ordination between scientific communities to work together and bring out the novel therapeutics.

IMPORTANCE AND SCOPE:

The Medical Parasitology conference will provide a platform for all the participants to discuss about the exciting advances that hold promise in reducing parasitic diseases, promising breakthroughs in the development of vaccines against medically important parasites and also about the technological and conceptual advances in the field. The field of public health is in close relation with medical parasitology and the global distribution of parasites offers great challenges to the workers in this field.
