Beschreibung

While medical and hygienic developments have driven down the mortality rates of infectious diseases, pathogenic microorganisms are still a major factor in everyday clinical practice, and remain the most frequent cause of death in Third World countries. New and incurable infectious diseases are a worldwide problem. It is inescapable, therefore, that modern medicine must redouble its efforts to understand the relationship between microorganisms and humans and continue to lead the search for new therapies.
This book provides a clearly focused and richly detailed review of the entire field of medical microbiology in five main sections:

Immunology
Bacteriology
Mycology
Virology
Parasitology

It is both a textbook for students of medicine and dentistry, and a useful companion for medical technicians and laboratory assistants, both at school and in the laboratory. It will also serve as a handy work of reference for clinical practitioners.
A wonderful teaching tool, this book renders complex themes readily accessible through the use of many color illustrations and microscopic images. Summaries at the beginning of every chapter, a color-coded reference guide and detailed diagnostic tables make this an excellent sourcebook for rapid learning and quick reference. A list of important internet addresses in the appendix will help the book's users keep abreast of cutting-edge research.
