Manuale di malattie infettive

Mauro Moroni, Spinello Antinori
e altri

editore: Edra Masson

pagine: 400

L'infettivologia, come disciplina, riguarda tutti gli organi ed apparati e si è arricchita di potenzialità diagnostiche e di possibilità terapeutiche del tutto innovative. Questo manuale, nato della collaborazione di più scuole infettivologiche nazionali, è stato concepito per venire incontro alla formazione dei futuri giovani medici. Gli autori hanno mantenuto la presentazione degli argomenti per apparati, ma hanno arricchito questa nuova edizione con cinque nuovi capitoli: semeiotica delle malattie infettive e principali indagini diagnostiche microbiologiche; indagini e manovre strumentali (quest'ultimo con filmati esplicativi relativi all'esecuzione di emogasanalisi, rachicentesi, biopsia epatica, biopsia osteomidollare e toracentesi); immunoprofilassi attiva e passiva; infezioni prevalenti in aree tropicali; infezioni in ambito penitenziario. Nell'aggiornamento dei contenuti è stato inoltre dato maggior rilievo alle infezioni sistemiche che sono state affrontate in due capitoli separati uno sulla sepsi (dando più spazio allo shock settico) e uno sulle batteriemie (dando più spazio ai retrovirus).

Infectious Disease: A Very Short Introduction

Benjamin M. Bolker, Marta Wayne

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 136

As doctors and biologists have learned, to their dismay, infectious disease is a moving target: new diseases emerge every year, old diseases evolve into new forms, and ecological and socioeconomic upheavals change the transmission pathways by which disease spread. By taking an approach focused on the general evolutionary and ecological dynamics of disease, this Very Short Introduction provides a general conceptual framework for thinking about disease. Ecology and evolution provide the keys to answering the 'where', 'why', 'how', and 'what' questions about any particular infectious disease: where did it come from? How is it transmitted from one person to another, and why are some individuals more susceptible than others? What biochemical, ecological, and evolutionary strategies can be used to combat the disease? Is it more effective to block transmission at the population level, or to block infection at the individual level? Through a series of case studies, Benjamin Bolker and Marta L. Wayne introduce the major ideas of infectious disease in a clear and thoughtful way, emphasising the general principles of infection, the management of outbreaks, and the evolutionary and ecological approaches that are now central to much research about infectious disease. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance

John Iskander, Nkuchia M. M'ikanatha

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 296

Infectious disease surveillance has evolved at an extraordinary pace during the past several decades, and continues to do so. It is increasingly used to inform public health practice in addition to its use as a tool for early detection of epidemics. It is therefore crucial that students of public health and epidemiology have a sound understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin modern surveillance of infectious disease. Written by leaders in the field, who have vast hands-on experience in conducting surveillance and teaching applied public health, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is comprised of four sections. The first section provides an overview, a description of systems used by public health jurisdictions in the United States and legal considerations for surveillance. The second section presents chapters on major program-area or disease-specific surveillance systems, including those that monitor bacterial infections, foodborne diseases, healthcare-associated infections, and HIV/AIDS. The following section is devoted to methods for conducting surveillance and also approaches for data analysis. A concluding section summarizes communication of surveillance findings, including the use of traditional and social media, in addition to showcasing lessons learned from the New York City Department of Health's experience in surveillance and epidemiology training. This comprehensive new book covers major topics at an introductory to intermediate level, and will be an excellent resource for instructors. Suitable for use in graduate level courses in public health, human and veterinary medicine, and in undergraduate programs in public-health-oriented disciplines, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is also a useful primer for frontline public health practitioners, hospital epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, laboratorians in public health settings, infectious disease researchers, and medical and public health informaticians interested in a concise overview of infectious disease surveillance.

Avian Influenza Virus

Erica Spackman

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 425

Avian Influenza Virus, Second Edition aims to provide the essential methods used in working with animal influenza viruses, and to compile more advanced information that will guide the user in designing influenza studies. Influenza A viruses are among the most important pathogens for humans, food animals and companion animals. Research and diagnostics with animal influenza viruses are critical to animal health and it should be recognized that the needs and goals of animal agriculture and veterinary medicine are not always the same as those of public health. This volume sorts out the differences in the structure of the poultry, swine and equine industries, the biological differences of influenza virus from each animal group, and provides host, strain and lineage specific guidance and procedures. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and accessible, Avian Influenza Virus, Second Edition seeks to serve both professionals and novices with its well-honed methodologies in an effort to further our knowledge of these important pathogens.

Genetics and Evolution of Infectious Diseases

Jenny Telleria, Michel Tibayrenc

editore: Elsevier Science Publishing Co Inc

pagine: 772

This multidisciplinary book is at the crossroads between two major scientific fields of the 21st century: evolutionary biology and infectious diseases. The genomic revolution has upset modern biology and has revolutionized our approach to ancient disciplines such as evolutionary studies. In particular, this revolution is profoundly changing our view on genetically driven human phenotypic diversity, and this is especially true in disease genetic susceptibility. Infectious diseases are indisputably the major challenge of medicine. When looking globally, they are the number one killer of humans and therefore the main selective pressure exerted on our species. Even in industrial countries, infectious diseases are now far less under control than 20 years ago. The first part of this book covers the main features and applications of modern technologies in the study of infectious diseases. The second part provides detailed information on a number of the key infectious diseases such as malaria, SARS, avian flu, HIV, tuberculosis, nosocomial infections and a few other pathogens that will be taken as examples to illustrate the power of modern technologies and the value of evolutionary approaches. It takes an integrated approach to infectious diseases. It includes contributions from leading authorities. It provides the latest developments in the field.
