A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. Parasites can cause disease in humans. Some parasitic diseases are easily treated and some are not. The burden of these diseases often rests on communities in the tropics and subtropics, but parasitic infections also affect people in developed countries.   Parasitic disease, in humans, any illness that is caused by a parasite, an organism that lives in or on another organism (known as the host).Parasites typically benefit from such relationships, often at the expense of the host organisms. Parasites of humans include protozoans, helminths, and ectoparasites (organisms that live on the external surface of a host). Parasitology Lecture Notes Carter Center. This lecture note is devoted to providing general aspects of parasitology in addition to covering human parasites in two major groups -the protozoa and helminths including their distribution, habitat, morphology, life cycle, pathogenicity, prevention and control, laboratory diagnosis and their relevance to Ethiopia. Myiasis, infestation of the body with the larvae (maggots) of certain species of inal myiasis results from ingestion of food contaminated with eggs or larvae and may produce cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Parasites apart from Babesia can play an important role in keeping chronic Lyme patients sick, and antiparasitic regimens are often important. Regimens including Biltricide, ivermectin, pyrantel pamoate (Pin-X), paromomycin, Alinia, and Albenza have been effective in certain patients with not only persistent GI symptoms but also fatigue.

Such advances have resulted from focal disease control efforts based on historically effective interventions to new approaches to control following intensive research and pilot programs. Control of Human Parasitic Diseases focuses on the present state of control of the significant human parasitic.
