Summary:
The stages of Blastocystis have been known for 101 years. However, many facts are still disputed, e.g. even the question whether it is a true pathogen or a commensal present in sometimes life-threatening diarrheas. The present book evaluates in chapters contributed by renowned researchers the latest findings on:{u2022}Landmarks in the discovery of Blastocystis{u2022}Epidemiology, transmission and zoonotic  Read more...
