Special Issue "Leishmaniasis: Transmission, Pathogenesis and Treatment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 April 2024 | Viewed by 3043
Interests: Leishmania and Leishmaniasis; diagnosis; pathogenesis
Leishmaniasis is a vector-borne, zoonotic disease caused by obligate intracellular parasitic protozoa of the genus Leishmania. Leishmaniasis is a disease of major public health concern that fulfills the One Health paradigm and is driven by environmental change that can affect animal reservoirs and human infection. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of articles that showcase the current issues in the study of “Leishmaniasis: Transmission, Pathogenesis and Treatment “, in order to provide information on this vector-borne disease, and to explore strategies for diagnosis, mechanisms of infection and pathogenesis, and strategies for prevention and treatment. We are also interested in natural products, being potentially rich sources of novel active molecules that may serve structural templates for drug discovery.
