Special Issue Information
Helminthosis represents a global problem that is not only attributed to financial losses, but also to losses caused by damage to animal health. To overcome this problem, the most common behavior of owners and breeders is to resort to the use of anthelmintic chemicals. However, this alternative has often presented unsatisfactory results, since the occurrence of the development of resistance by parasites to commercially available antiparasitic drugs has been reported frequently in several countries. Changes in consumer perspective regarding animal welfare in production and sustainability have conquered a significant share of the market as a result of demand for chemical-free products. Among the advances for the control of helminthosis, we have the biological control, vaccines, resistant breeds, nanotechnology and even new anthelmintics, whether chemical or phytotherapeutic, that are necessary for the dynamics of the control of helminthosis.
