Summary

Infections with the parasite Trichinella spiralis have undoubtedly been present for thousands of years, but it was only 150 years ago that the parasite was associated with clinical disease in man and subsequently with the consumption of raw or inadequately cooked pork.

The 54 papers in the book contain the most recent information on the parasite Trichinella and on the disease, trichinellosis. Presented by scientists from 17 countries throughout the world, the papers are the record of the Sixth International Conference on Trichinellosis held at Val Morin, Quebec Province, Canada, July 8–12, 1984.

The program consisted of three symposia, each devoted to immunology, genetics, and epidemiology and control. The scientific sessions consisted of the following areas: immunology, pathology, speciation (characterization of isolates), biology (ultrastructure), slaughterhouse, epidemiology, hosts susceptibility and resistance, and sero-diagnosis and chemotherapy. In addition, there were informal workshops on immunology, speciation, and clinical therapy, which are not included here.

This comprehensive volume will serve as a valuable resource to all who are actively engaged in basic and applied research and in treating the disease. Therefore, the book is useful for parasitologists, immunologists, pathologists, clinicians, veterinarians and public health workers interested in Trichinella and trichinellosis.

Charles W. Kim is Associate Professor of Medicine and Microbiology in the School of Medicine at the Health Sciences Center of the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
