Anaerobic bacteria: role in disease [proceedings] by Albert Balows( )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1978 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past ten years have witnessed a renewed interest in the classic anaerobic diseases as well as a host of additional clinical entities caused by one or more anaerobic bacteria. With the renewed interest on the part of clinicians, coupled with the unraveling of the ""mystique' surrounding the technology of anaerobic bacteriology by bacteriologists, it became evident that the time was ripe to bring together the clinical and bacteriological aspects of anaerobic diseases. To accomplish this, an international conference, cosponsored by the Center for Disease Control, Emory University, and the Upj

14 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current diagnostic methods for the great variety of microbial agents affecting health are clearly unsatisfactory. New important pathogens have emerged including the agent responsible for bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Moreover, there is an increasing need for more accurate microbial control of our environment, and of the food and water we consume. What is needed are rapid, sensitive and reliable procedures which, on the one hand, should be suitable for automation and, onthe other hand, presented in a cost-effective version suitable for field use. Including new biochemical approaches, such as polymerase chain reaction, recombinant gene products and synthetic peptides, these needs are discussed in these protocols of the RAMI-90 congress
