Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Parasitic infections present a major challenge to the health and well being of several billions of people across the world. Political unrest, natural disasters, the
migrations of huge populations and the spread of HIV infections have added to already serious problems by increasing global parasi
e burdens. Increasingly it is becoming clear that interactions between parasites and other infectious agents can aggravate disease.
Against this backdrop, progress is being
made in the containment of many parasitic infections and there is optimism that some of the diseases that have plagued humans for centuries may be eradicated. Hopes for the future
revolve around the application of modern molecular, genetic and immunological science, linked to the systematic use of evidence-based control methods. All these themes and more run
through the chapters in this volume.
Parasitology has been thoroughly revised and updated for the tenth edition of Topley & Wilson's Microbiology and Microbial
Infections to include all newly identified parasites and emerging diseases. Through discussion of the general aspects of parasitology and detailed reviews of specific organisms
(grouped under protozoa and helminths) the volume provides an authoritative survey of current knowledge of parasitic organisms and the human diseases to which they give rise, what
their effects are and ways in which they can be controlled, not only now, but also in the future. The comprehensive coverage includes the basic science that underlies disease
transmission and progression, the classification and identification of the organisms concerned, and the epidemiology and treatment of the diseases caused.
Parasitology is an
invaluable companion for infectious disease specialists, pathologists, parasitologists and all others working in the increasingly important field.
Описание: Increased interest from academic, industrial, and government scientists in the pathogenic molds and yeasts has stimulated research that has resulted in a
significant expansion of our knowledge of the biology, molecular genetics, clinical expression, diagnosis, and management of fungal diseases. "Medical Mycology" has therefore been
thoroughly revised and updated for this edition to include coverage of all newly identified and emerging fungal pathogens or fungal infections, innovative research, and the development
of applications of new technology in the field. "Medical Mycology" provides comprehensive coverage of the pathogenic fungi and the diseases they cause.The volume covers the
history, the biologic and molecular taxonomy of the fungal pathogens, diagnostic techniques, and integration of newer antifungal agents and strategies for the management of fungal
pathogens, followed by detailed reviews of the etiological agents grouped by the principle sites that they target and the host response they elicit.
"Medical Mycology" is an
important resource for all members of the medical mycology community and associated disciplines, including research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists, infectious disease
specialists and other clinicians, and epidemiologists. It will also be a powerful resource and inspirati
n for students interested in studying the relationship between the fungi and their hosts, leading to the diverse infections that they cause.
Описание: In recent years there has been a revolution in our understanding of infections and the infective process as well as in our ability to detect, identify, characterise
and understand commensal and pathogenic bacteria. The bacteriology volumes in Topley & Wilson's Microbiology and Microbial Infections have therefore been thoroughly
restructured and updated for this tenth edition to include all new, emerging or re-emerging pathogens as well as providing the ultimate reference to established organisms. The two
volumes provide comprehensive, authoritative coverage of all aspects of bacteriology, and are divided into parts covering the general basic characteristics of bacteria and bacterial
infections; their ecosystems; epidemiology, transmission and therapy; organ and system infections and laboratory aspects.
BR> These are followed by detailed reviews of the individual organisms and their biology. The chapters distil current knowledge while providing insight into future developments in
the field. The editors' and contributors' enthusiasm for this exciting subject, combined with the breadth of coverage and the clinical relevance of the material ensures that Bacteriology
will prove invaluable to students and teachers of microbiology, while microbiologists working in general, medical, food, environmental, and pharmaceutical fields will come to find this their
definitive reference work.
Описание: Immunology brings together the scientific basis and clinical aspects of the acquisition and progression of the host response to infectious disease, providing
comprehensive coverage of this fast-moving field. It is included in this tenth edition of Topley & Wilson's Microbiology and Microbial Infections as a stand-alone volume for the first
time. Arranged under the topics of innate immunity and inflammation, soluble mediators, acquired immunity, infection and immunity, immunopathology, and immunodeficiency and
vaccines, Immunology allows the reader to identify specific topics related to infectious diseases, and also to find information on the basic mechanisms underlying immunity.
Chapters include information on the clinical issues of immunology as they relate to immunopathology and immunodeficiency, and on the different aspects of vaccination and vaccine
development. The international authorship and breadth of coverage ensure that Immunology will be an unrivalled resource for all members of the immunology community and associated
microbiological disciplines, including research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists, infectious disease specialists and other clinicians. In addition, Immunology will be an invaluable
reference for students and teachers of immunology.
