Fascioliasis: Causative agent, Life cycle, Symptoms, Treatment.

Fascioliasis is an infectious disease caused by Fasciola parasites, which are flatworms referred to as liver flukes. The adult (mature) flukes are found in the bile ducts and liver of infected people and animals, such as sheep and cattle. In general, fascioliasis is more common in livestock and other animals than in people.

Lymphatic filariasis: Wuchereria bancrofti

Lymphatic filariasis is a parasitic disease caused by three microscopic, thread-like worms, called Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori. These worms infect the lymphatic system and cause Lymphatic filariasis. The adult worm can be found in the human lymph system, this system helps to maintain the body’s fluid balance and fights against infections.

Protozoa: Structure and Locomotor Organelles

The size and shape of protozoa vary based on the types of species. For example, the causative agent of Kala azar, Leishmania donovani has a size range of 1 to 4 micrometers in length, while the Amoeba proteus is 600 micrometers or more in size. Some members of ciliates can reach 2,000 micrometers or 2mm.
