There are currently no prophylactic or therapeutic vaccines against parasites of medical importance, the parasitic infections with major public health consequences being concentrated in tropical, less industrially developed countries. However, a limited number of living vaccines against economically important parasites is available in veterinary medicine, and vaccination efficacy of crude antigen preparations has been demonstrated time and again in laboratory models involving helminth, protozoan, and arthropod parasites (Clegg and Smith, 1978; Cox, 1978; Péry and Luffau, 1979; Murray et al., 1979; Mitchell, 1982a; Mitchell and Anders, 1982; Rickard and Williams, 1982).
