Department Of Medical Laboratory Science Courseware


Medical Laboratory Science is concerned with the analysis of clinical specimen (urine, blood, stool, peritoneal fluid, synovial fluid e.t.c) with the aim of identifying thecause/s of disease conditions.  It is pivotal to the effective management of diseases as reports shows that over 60 percent of decision relating to hospital admissions, prescribed medicals and discharge of patients depends on laboratory data. Medical laboratory science as a discipline is thus a fulcrum for practice of modern day medicine. One trained to perform…

General overview of lecture: This course is structured to provide students with the basic
knowledge of Medical Parasitology. The lectures will x-ray the various relationships that exist
between parasites and host, with specific examples outlined. Protozoan and helminthes of
medical importance will be discussed with emphasis on their life cycles, mode of transmission,
pathogenesis and method of diagnosis. The biology of certain arthropods (vectors) in relation to
transmission dynamics of parasites will also form a core of this course.
