Summary This is the first book to collect and summarize in one publication the efforts to use kinases or phosphatases for drug development against parasite infections. The editors and contributors comprise the Who's Who in the field, and they are comprehensive in covering every aspect of the topic, from basic research findings to translational approaches in drug developmentThe result will be welcomed by everyone in academia and industry participating in the global effort to finally combat the major diseases caused by eukaryotic parasites. This is volume one of a two-volume treatise, the second
