Parasitic diseases constitute a major health burden in domestic animals and humans, but they also put strain on crop plants. Despite the considerable efforts of governmental and private bodies to develop and apply effective control measures for affected populations, considerable knowledge gaps remain and a lack of sustainable and economic control options persists. However, advances in vaccine development and the development of deeper insights into the dynamics of antiparasitic drug resistance and its prevention (or at least delay) have demonstrated progress in combating parasitic diseases. Global changes (including climate changes, landscape overuse and loss of biodiversity), however, appear to be shifting development in the opposite direction, and the (re-)emergence of parasitic diseases threatens previous success. Amongst these, vector-borne and zoonotic parasites are of utmost concern. This Special Issue of Pathogens will highlight the most recent advances in fundamental and applied research into parasitic diseases (in animals, humans and plants), with a focus on epidemiology, novel options for surveillance and control, and cutting-edge -omics analyses, which will provide the basis for the development of effective long-term control.
