Clinical Tuberculosis

A Practical Handbook

Peter F. Barnes, Stephen Gordon

editore: Hodder Education

pagine: 224

Clinical Tuberculosis: A Practical Handbook is a much-needed portable clinical reference providing practical guidance on key aspects of the disease. This pocket-sized book is a useful "how-to" handbook for the clinician managing patients with tuberculosis in either a well-resourced or poorly-resourced setting. Packed with case studies, clinical pearls of wisdom, and practical advice, this clinical manual outlines day-to-day management of patients as well as treatment and control of this important and ever-spreading global disease. A wealth of diagrams and clinical photographs also helps to make information available at a glance. It is intended for respiratory physicians, infectious disease physicians, public health workers, and nurses less familiar with the disease, especially in developing world markets where TB and HIV are endemic.

Clinical Tuberculosis

Peter D. O. Davies, Peter F. Barnes
e altri

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 576

Over three previous editions, Clinical Tuberculosis has established itself as an indispensable guide to all aspects of tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment. This fully revised and updated fourth edition provides practical guidance to healthcare professionals involved in any aspect of patient management or disease control; chapters are included on epidemiology, pathology, immunology, disease presentation, diagnosis, treatment and management options. The problem of TB associated with HIV infection is given special emphasis, as are the increasing problems of multi-drug resistant strains and environmentally opportunistic mycobacteria. Chapter authors have been hand-picked to represent the most up-to-date thinking in their particular subject areas, making Clinical Tuberculosis the essential reference work for the bookshelves of respiratory physicians, infectious disease specialists, public health workers and other individuals involved in the management and control of tuberculosis worldwide.

Pathogenesis of Human Pulmonary Tuberculosis

Insights from the Rabbit Model

Arthur Dannenberg

editore: American Society for Microbiology

pagine: 453

Examines the pathogenesis of human pulmonary tuberculosis in all of its stages, with a primary focus on the rabbit model. * Reviews the interplay of delayed-type hypersensitivity and cell-mediated immunity, clearly showing how both are needed to control the growth of the tubercle bacillus and how antibodies contribute to these cellular immune responses. * Covers the histochemistry of macrophage activation; the roles of various cytokines; the effects of glucocorticoids, estrogens, thyroid hormones, and irradiation on the disease; and principles of immunization against tuberculosis, including vaccine development. * Focuses on areas of future research that could contribute to the knowledge, treatment, and control of this disease. * Serves as a resource for clinicians, public health investigators, and laboratory researchers in tuberculosis and immunology.

Tuberculosis

The Microbe Host Interface

Larry S. Schlesinger, Lucy E. DesJardin

editore: Garland Publishing Inc

pagine: 292

M. tuberculosis remains one of the most successful human pathogens known. The causative agent of tuberculosis, it also has a unique ability to persist for years in the infected, apparently healthy host. This dormant organism can be reactivated years, even decades later to cause tuberculosis. Knowledge regarding the interaction of M. tuberculosis with the host is fundamental to understanding the pathogenesis, leading eventually to the development of strategies for the prevention and control of infection and disease. By integrating genetic, microbiologic, immunologic, and cell biologic approaches to elucidate pathogenesis, penetrating new insights into the interaction of M. tuberculosis with the host have emerged. This book reviews the most important state-of-the-art approaches currently used to study microbe-host interactions and highlights emerging methodologies. Strategies to analyze the following topics are included: mycobacterial entry, growth, and gene expression in macrophages; analysis of post-phagocytic events; analysis of signaling in infected macrophage; the acquired immune response; newer animal- and non animal-models systems; latency; and the epidemiology of M. tuberculosis infections.

Tuberculosis

Stuart M. Garay, William N. Rom

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 790

This comprehensive clinical reference is edited by experts from the NYU-Bellevue Chest Service, which through its influence in tuberculosis care and education has been an integral part of the formation of the entire specialty of pulmonary medicine. The book draws on this extensive experience to present an authoritative account of the history, epidemiology, microbiology, immunology, clinical treatment, pharmacology, and prevention or control of tuberculosis. The book will serve as a definitive reference for specialists in pulmonary medicine, infectious disease, and public health. New to the Second Edition are more concise and focused chapters, new information on molecular biology from the genome project, and updated information especially for the epidemiology section.
