- Course objectives
- The main objective of this course is: to explain immune response against parasite infections, including protozoans, helmints and ectoparasitic artrophods. This course is useful especially for students of parasitology, which will learn additional facts about parasite – host interactions. Attendants of the course should have basic knowledge of immunology from the past.
- Learning outcomes
- At the end of the course students should be able to:
- to explain immune response against parasite infections
- to describe and explain the relationship between the life cycle of parasite and immune mechanisms of the host
- identify and describe the immunopathology of parasitic infections
- to discuss the development of vaccines against parasites.
