Helminthological Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research on helminthology from molecular genetics to epidemiology.
Helminthological Abstracts is selected from the parasitology coverage of CAB Abstracts; it covers taxonomy, biology, pathology, immunology, diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment and control of all helminths (Monogenea, Aspidogastrea, Digenea, Cestoda, Acanthocephala, Nematoda) parasitic in man and domestic and wild animals.
Each week, the online version delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English-language and non-English journal articles, reports, conferences and books about parasitic worms (helminths).
Created and indexed by subject specialists, Helminthological Abstracts provides access to these abstracts using comprehensive indexing and classification codes.
The database includes a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of over 200,000 abstracts with more than 5,000 new records added each year, keeping you completely up to date with current and seminal research on helminths.
Helminthological Abstracts is also available as a monthly journal in print.
