By N. Anand, S. Sharma†

This booklet offers a accomplished and recent account of the chemotherapy of parasitic illnesses, either human and veterinary. The booklet begins with an summary of parasitic illnesses. The physique of the booklet is split into elements: antihelminthic medications, and antiprotozoal medicines. either components commence with chapters highlighting the 'biochemical objectives' to be had for chemotherapeutic interference. person chapters care for one chemical category of compounds and describe their foundation, structure-activity dating, mode of motion, and techniques of synthesis and their prestige either in medical and veterinary perform. The publication may be precious to a large spectrum of readers: scholars embarking on a learn profession in parasitic chemotherapy, clinicians (and veterinarians) and medical pharmacologists needing distinct information regarding the medication presently in use, and pharmaceutical technologists desirous to replace their wisdom of the equipment of manufacture.
