Echinococcosis and Taeniasis are zoonotic parasitic diseases of taeniid cestodes with detrimental impacts on humans and animals. Echinococcus granulosus, E. multilocularis, Taenia asiatica, T. solium, and T. saginata are potential cestodes that trigger the economic loss of a particular region. Several studies have gained insight into the origin, biology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapy, and prevention of Echinococcosis and Taeniasis. However, the implementations and their chronicles are not fully understood.
As experts in this field, we invite you to share research results (research papers and reviews ) to our upcoming Special Issue which covers any of the topics related to the named Zoonotic Cestodiasis by considering (but not limited to) the topics below:A. Diagnostic:
- Experimental immunotherapy and vaccination.
- Omic approaches on Echinococcosis and Taeniasis.
- Novel methods for diagnostic test evaluation and actual prevalence estimation.
- The role of Next Generation Sequencing on the identification of infection.
- New drugs and targets against cystic echinococcosis.
- Treatment surgical and non-surgical.
- What we have done and what we are doing for Echinococcosis and Taeniasis.
- Reported rare locations cases.
- Molecular Epidemiology, Epidemiology, and public health.
- Prevalence: Human and hosts prevalence in the endemic area.
- Overview of the socioeconomic impact of Echinococcosis and Taeniasis in endemic countries.
