Immunology is a sub field of biology and medicine which studies the immune system. Parasites are the organisms which reside in or on their host and obtain food by harming their hosts. Parasitology, refers to the study of parasites and their hosts, along with the interactions that take place between them. Immunoparasitology is the combination of immunology and parasitology, which studies the immunological interactions that take place between the parasite and the host, along with the immune responses generated by hosts to fight against parasitic infections. One of the primary motivations for investigating parasite resistance is the requirement to comprehend, reduce and eradicate the harm caused by parasites. The host responses to parasites are more than just passive reactions after infection. Different host immune responses indicate different defense methods used by the host for creating protective immunity. Parasites have developed several ways to evade host immune surveillance, such as molecular mimicry and decoys that helps in parasite's survival. This book contains some path-breaking studies in immunology and parasitology. It covers in detail some existent theories and innovative concepts revolving around this domain. This book aims to serve as a resource guide for students and experts alike and contribute to the growth of the disciplines.
