Nanotechnology in Diagnosis, Treatment and Prophylaxis of Infectious Diseases delivers comprehensive coverage of the application of nanotechnology to pressing problems in infectious disease. This text equips readers with cutting-edge knowledge of promising developments and future prospects in nanotechnology, paying special attention to microbes that are now resistant to conventional antibiotics, a concerning problem in modern medicine. Readers will find a thorough discussion of this new approach to infectious disease treatment, including the reasons nanotechnology presents a promising avenue for the diagnosis, treatment, and prophylaxis of infectious diseases. Provides a comprehensive overview of the use of nanotechnology in the treatment and diagnosis of infectious diseases Covers all common types of infective agents, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa, along with their vectors, ticks, mosquitoes, flies, etc. Delivers commentary from an international researcher base, providing insights across differing economic statuses Includes a foundation of basic nanotechnological concepts to aid in designing new strategies to combat several pathogenic diseases and cancer Illustrates the high antimicrobial potential of nanoparticles, ultimately demonstrating how they are a promising alternative class that can be successfully used in fighting a myriad of infections
Provides practical and current recommendations on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious disease. Its chapters cover such rapidly evolving subjects as bioterrorism, but also covers the mainstays of infectious disease, such as STDs and upper respiratory infections. This book includes, as well as viral, bacterial, fungal infections, slow virus, prions, and others. This book is also excerpted from the acclaimed, continually updated textbook of internal medicine, WebMD Scientific American Medicine.
Ideal for both practitioners and students, this comprehensive resource covers the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious disease in horses. Organized by infectious agent — virus, bacterial and rickettsial, protazoal, and fungal — it includes complete coverage of the individual diseases caused by each type of agent. A section on clinical problems examines conditions such as ocular infections, CNS infections, and skin infections. It also addresses the importance of preventing and controlling infectious disease outbreaks with coverage of epidemiology, biosecurity, antimicrobial therapy, and recognizing foreign equine diseases. Full-color photos and illustrations provide clear, accurate representations of the clinical appearance of infectious diseases. Features the most recent information on the global threat of newly emergent diseases such as African Horse Sickness. Includes a comprehensive section on the prevention and control of infectious diseases. More than 60 expert contributors share their knowledge and expertise in equine infectious disease. A companion CD-ROM, packaged with the book, includes complete references linked to PubMed.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Human Mycoses brings together globally-recognized mycoses experts to guide readers in the use of current knowledge in the field of medical mycology to manage those who suffer from fungal infections (mycoses). Often, diagnostic strategies and tests, including basic and directed culturing techniques, histopathology with standard and special stains, serological methods, and radiological studies all need to be considered and commonly combined to make the diagnosis of fungal infection. This volume first introduces and reviews these tools separately and then as they pertain to specific infections or groups of diseases. The volume consists of four parts. Parts I-III provide an overview of diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and part IV presents the human mycoses. Diagnosis and Treatment of Human Mycoses is meant to be a concise text that will provide the busy infectious disease, hematology–oncology, pulmonology, or critical care specialist a practical tool to diagnose and manage fungal infections. In addition, the depth of the material in the text will provide these and other medical specialists and trainees an excellent reference and learning resource.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a worldwide problem affecting all nations and races. Such diseases are especially prevalent in developing countries where insufficient health care centers, inadequate laboratory capabilities, and the unavailablity of appropriate treatment perpetuate the problem. Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Epidemiology, Pathology, Diagnosis, and Treatment addresses the therapeutic challenges posed by STDs. It covers bacterial, spirochete, fungal, protozoan, viral, and ectoparasite infections. Strategies and progress in eliminating these diseases worldwide are discussed.
This book of illustrative cases provides a cross-sectional view of the growing challenges that face the infectious diseases consultant.
This text uses cases to illustrate differential diagnoses of various infectious diseases. Unlike any other book on the market, this book is specifically designed for ease of use and can cater to a variety of medical professionals and their needs. The text features brief cases that allow for quick readability, an appendix particularly designed for cross-referencing cases with common symptoms, exposures, and putative diagnoses, bulleted conclusion points, and differential diagnoses tables. Each case is written by an expert in the field and includes a discussion that leads the reader through the logical process of deduction to narrow the diagnosis as well as the laboratory testing, physical examination findings, and elements of the patient’s history and exposures utilized to make a diagnosis. Chapters conclude with a focused review on a specific topic related to diagnosis, treatment, or prognosis that the case illustrates, including references for further reading on the topics from the literature. The Infectious Disease Diagnosis is an outstanding resource for infectious disease specialists, internal medicine physicians, emergency room staff, primary care and general practice physicians, family practitioners, consultants in infectious disease, medical students, residents, fellows, and trainees who diagnose patients.
