Today there are more than 500 million clinical cases of malaria worldwide, and every 30 seconds a death is caused by malaria. Although significant advances have been made in our understanding of the basic biology, genetics, and pathogenesis of malaria, this information has not been available in an easily accessible form. Now this valuable new volume, Malaria: Parasite Biology, Pathogenesis, and Protection brings it all together in one place to facilitate the rapid generation of new insights and interventions. Each chapter is written by a leading expert or experts, serves as a thoughtful introduction to the area, and provides a helpful set of references. Malaria: Parasite Biology, Pathogenesis, and Protection is a useful entry point for graduate and medical students, scientists, and physicians. It is also valuable reading for those individuals already engaged in a subspecialty of malaria research who want to know more about progress in other areas as well as those who are simply interested in getting a grasp on the present status of this ever-burgeoning public health problem.
