Guide to Clinical and Diagnostic Virology

editore: American Society for Microbiology

pagine: 311

The explosion in clinical testing has been especially rapid in virology, where emerging viruses and growing numbers of viral infections are driving advances. The Guide to Clinical and Diagnostic Virology offers a digestible view of the breadth and depth of information related to clinical virology, providing a practical, working knowledge of the wide array of viruses that cause human disease. Introductory chapters cover the basics of clinical virology and laboratory diagnosis of infections, including virus structure, life cycle, transmission, taxonomy, specimen types and handling, and a comparison of assays used for detection. Detailed sections on important topics include Viral pathogens and their clinical presentations Diagnostic assays and techniques, including culture-based, immunological, and molecular Prevention and management of viral infections, with guidance on biosafety, vaccines, and antiviral therapies The regulatory environment for laboratory testing, including regulatory requirements and assay performance and interpretation Critical concepts are carefully curated and concisely summarized and presented with detailed illustrations that aid comprehension, along with important highlights and helpful hints. These features, plus question sections that reinforce significant ideas and key concepts, make this an invaluable text for anyone looking for an accessible route through clinical and diagnostic virology. Laboratory technologists, medical students, infectious disease and microbiology fellows, pathology residents, researchers, and everyone involved with viruses in the clinical setting will find the Guide to Clinical and Diagnostic Virology an excellent text as well as companion to clinical virology references.

Immunology, Infection, and Immunity

Gerald B. Pier, Jeffrey B. Lyczak
e altri

editore: American Society for Microbiology

pagine: 750

This is a text with CD study guide. With a focus on the relatedness of immunology and microbiology, "Immunology, Infection, and Immunity" covers both the foundation concepts of immunology, among the most exciting in modern biology and medicine, and their application to the real world of diseases and health. This new text combines clear narratives of how the immune system functions relying in many instances on supporting data from experiments. The editors use examples and illustrations depicting basic immunologic processes in conjunction with their role in infectious or other diseases in order to teach both basic and applied aspects of immunology. A chapter on antibody-antigen interactions and measurements of immunologic reactions familiarizes students with the tools of experimental immunology. In addition to an emphasis on infectious diseases, the book focuses strongly on those areas where the immune system does not act when it should - primary and acquired immunodeficiency, and the failure to control cancer - as well as areas where the over-activity or dysregulation of the immune system is a cause of pathology - hypersensitivity reactions, including allergy and asthma, autoimmunity and the unwanted immune responses to transplanted tissues and organs. To bring the full flavor and excitement of immunology to new students, the editors have assembled an outstanding group of contributors with expertise in the multiple areas of immunology who provide the most up-to-date information in this quickly moving field. All of the chapters have standardized thematic and structural aspects to provide critical information in a comprehensive style. "Immunology, Infection, and Immunity" is ideally suited for upper division and graduate level students as well as medical and dental students with a good background in basic biology, biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology. The text complements traditional views and dogmas about immunology with today's cutting edge ideas and experimental data describing how the immune system works, some of which are challenging and changing some long-held beliefs about the function of the immune system. It examines the basic molecular and cellular components of the immune system relative to the pathogenesis and prevention of infectious diseases. It concentrates on the way in which the immune system is critical to the pathogenesis and prevention of infectious diseases. It focuses on primary and acquired immunodeficiency and immune system dysregulation as causes of pathology. It includes contributions from multiple areas of immunology present current information in a rapidly moving field. All chapters have standardized thematic and structural aspects to provide critical information in a comprehensible style. It features examples and illustrations that depict basic immunologic processes in conjunction with their role in infectious or other diseases. About the Electronic Study Guide - "The DLG CD-ROM" is an interactive, automated program that organizes each chapter from "Immunology, Infection and Immunity" into questions, answers, and extensive explanations. The software helps students first through reviewing the book and then helps them quiz themselves and assess their progress. Students can print out or even stop a study session and resume exactly where they left off at their convenience. With the "DLG", students will be able to quickly learn new information, retain it longer, and improve their test scores. Students can work at their own pace, measure their performance, and make the most efficient use of their study time. It is prepared by Mary J. Ruebush. Recommended system requirements: Windows 98/98SE/ME/NT4/2000/XP; Pentium Class Processor, 166 MHz or greater 64 MB of RAM 300 MB free disk space; and internet connection for registration/activation only.
