Microbe-vector interactions in vector-borne diseases : Sixty-third Symposium of the Society for General Microbiology held at the University of Bath, March 2004

edited by S.H. Gillespie, G.L. Smith and A. Osbourn

Several billion people are at daily risk of life threatening vector-borne diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiasis and dengue. This volume describes the way in which the causal pathogens of such diseases interact with the vectors that transmit them. It details the elegant biological adaptations that have enabled pathogens to live with their vectors and, in some circumstances, to control them. This knowledge has led to novel preventative strategies in the form of antibiotics and new vaccines which are targeted not at the pathogen itself but at its specific vector.
