Nanoparasitology” is an extensively explored area of nanoscience. Parasites hold immense significance as disease-causing and transmitting agents of veterinary, human, and zoonotic significance. In the world of emerging resistance against many parasites, nanomaterials have been employed to relieve burning-resistant scenarios. Both internal and external parasites have been shown to respond at fairly lower lethal concentrations when compared to the routinely used anti-parasiticals. This chapter overviews the applications of nanomaterials in combating parasites and presents useful insights for future research.
