Molecular methods for diagnosis of Zoonotic Helminths: Can they be made accessible to the common Man?

Debraj Biswal

Understanding the life cycle and pathogenesis of zoonotic helminths is extremely important because a majority of the infections are acquired from the livestock animals. These animals (including birds) live in close association with the human beings and serve as a reservoir of infections [1]. Taenia solium cysticercosis is currently reported as an important re-emerging zoonosis and the development of sensitive and specific diagnostic tests are needed urgently.
