The everlasting questions "why epidemics" and "in what manner has the human race become subject to multiform epidemization" encouraged for over a span of 40 years and on three continents the quest for answers. With the improvement of investigative methods, disease entities due to hitherto unknown infectious processes have been identified. To be sure, the number is steadily increasing, and there is no reason to believe that the total has as yet been reached. In the course of the search, it became clear that the parasitic diseases of man and animals are obviously a part of a broad evolutionary development.
