Cutaneous Manifestations of Infection in the Immunocompromised Host
Carrie Kovarik, Lindy P. Foxe altri
editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
The updated second edition of Cutaneous Manifestations of Infection in the Immunocompromised Host is an invaluable reference for physicians and ancillary medical professionals involved in the care of patients with impaired immune systems due to cancer, chemotherapy, systemic steroids and other immunosuppressive drugs, HIV/AIDS or organ transplantation. This volume will help you recognize skin lesions and diagnose their infectious cause. Textbook features include: * Over 350 color images demonstrating pathognomonic, atypical, rare and routine skin lesions * Tables for differential diagnosis of different skin lesions in the immunocompromised host * Complete coverage of infectious pathogens with the patterns of infection and the likely causes in different clinical settings (HIV/AIDS versus solid organ transplantation versus neutropenia post-chemotherapy versus bone marrow recovery post hematopoietic stem cell transplantation ) * New chapter discussing the role of viruses causing malignancies with cutaneous signs in the immunocompromised patient Written by dermatologists, the new edition is an indispensable diagnostic tool intended for use by all clinicians who care for immunocompromised patients.
Le micosi invasive nell'ospite immunocompromesso
a cura di P. Serra, F. Mandelli
Questo volume rappresenta lo stato dell'arte sulle infezioni fungine nei pazienti con ridotta risposta immunitaria, problema di straordinaria e crescente rilevanza medica. Ma il libro è soprattutto una summa del sapere dei più prestigiosi microbiologi, clinici e farmacologi che hanno voluto, con questa pubblicazione, ricordare la figura del professor Pietro Martino, uno dei padri dell'infettivologia italiana.
Immunology, Infection, and Immunity

editore: American Society for Microbiology
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.
Granulomatous Infections and Inflammations
Dov L. Boros
editore: American Society for Microbiology
A comprehensive summary of knowledge on experimental and clinical granulomatoses. * Covers the major aspects of the granulomatous response, providing the basis for the understanding of the overall granulomatous immune response and its resolution. * Provides an in-depth discussion of the mechanistic basis of inflammation in a number of representative granulomatous diseases, illustrates different cellular responses and immune mechanisms within the framework of the general granulomatous response. * Examines experimental treatments of mice by cell transfer between donor and recipient, infection of inflammatory/regulatory cytokines or cytokine-neutralizing antibodies, and use of mice genetically deficient in cytokine/chemokine production or cytokine/chemokine receptor expression. This title is published by the American Society for Microbiology Press and distributed by Taylor and Francis in rest of world territories.
