Staphylococcus aureus infection and disease by Allen Honeyman( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Staphylococcus aureus is now acknowledged as being the most important bacterial pathogen of humans. It usually produces localized disease but can be rapidly invasive, spreading through the tissues, invading bone, and seeding the bloodstream to produce a fulminant picture of septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and rapid death. Moreover, most strains of staph infections are becoming resistant to most antibiotics, thus posing a significant problem for hospitals and health care facilities

Opportunistic intracellular bacteria and immunity by Lois J Paradise( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opportunistic, intracellular bacterial infections are in the forefront of research today because of the challenges they present to the immunocompromised patient. In this volume, the pathogenesis and immune reaction of these intracellular infections is featured, as are the most typical problems related to antimicrobial chemotherapy, and current approaches to their solution. Notable chapters set the pace for research on the pathogenic and immune reactions to such infections as Mycobacterium tuberculosis Legionella pneumophila Chlamydia trachomatis and Brucella
Chlamydia pneumoniae : infection and disease by Herman Friedman( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a bacteria that is most commonly known for causing colds and pneumonia. However, researchers have recently found a link between C. pneumoniae and atherosclerosis, a clogging of the arteries that causes heart attack and stroke. In addition, ongoing research is showing that certain strains may play a role in asthma, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and arthritis. This volume, part of the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, is a complete portrait of C. pneumoniae and what is currently known about it
Herpesviruses and immunity by Peter G Medveczky( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable ability of herpesviruses to escape immunity brings together the two disciplines of immunology and virology in an inextricable way. Because herpesvirus can induce, suppress, and fool the immune system, the most productive herpesvirologists are also expert immunologists, and the results of this latest interdisciplinary effort document the interactions between both disciplines. Herpesviruses and Immunity brings together the contributions of world-class herpesvirus virologists and immunologists who summarize their work to recount some of the most exciting current developments in the field of herpes virology

Busy clinicians and health practitioners recognize the importance of speedy detection of pathogens to impede the further spread of infection, and to ensure their patients' rapid and complete recovery. This reader-friendly reference is a unique collection of the newest and most effective diagnostic techniques currently in use in clinical and research laboratories. Instructive commentary regarding the application of these often complex methods is provided. This essential text aids readers in selecting the most efficient method, finding the necessary resources, and avoiding the most common pitfalls in implementation
Human retroviral infections : immunological and therapeutic control by Kenneth E Ugen( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together experts in the field of human retroviral pathogenesis, vaccine development, and the clinical treatment of AIDS. The problems facing the development of an effective vaccine against HIV-1 is the ability of the virus, particularly in the immunogenic envelope glycoprotein, to undergo amino acid hypervariability, thus making a vaccine against one envelope glycoprotein ineffective against other viruses due to their mutability
Microorganisms and bioterrorism by Burt Anderson( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to bring together, in a single volume, the most up-to-date information concerning microbes with potential as bioterrorist weapons. The primary audience includes microbiologists, including bacteriologists, virologists and mycologists, in academia, government laboratories and research institutes at the forefront of studies concerning microbes which have potential as bioterrorist weapons, public health physicians and researchers and scientists who must be trained to deal with bioterrorist attacks as well as laboratory investigators who must identify and characterize these microorganisms from the environment and from possibly infected patients
Infectious diseases and substance abuse by Herman Friedman( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influence of many drugs of abuse - licit and illicit - on immune function has been examined extensively over the years. This volume, part of the "Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis" series, examines a variety of drugs of abuse and how they affect the immune system
In vivo models of HIV disease and control by Herman Friedman( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the similarities between HIV and immune deficiency infections in animals, scientists use animals as models to study pathogenesis and other aspects of HIV. Part of the "Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis" series, this volume reviews the immune deficiency virus in various hosts and also talks about the history and future of animal models
Legionella pneumophila : pathogenesis and immunity by Paul S Hoffman( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legionella pneumophila is an emerging human pathogen that resides in natural environments as a parasite of freshwater. There have been new developments in this field including the publication of three whole genome sequences, the discovery of a developmental cycle and novel cyst-like highly infectious form, and the bacteria have been used as a probe for macrophage cellular function to unravel fundamental new knowledge in the area of cellular biology. Legionella has also become a model system for the study of innate as well as adaptive immunity. Information on Legionella continues to increase in the U.S. and abroad. Columbia University has started the first Legionella Genome Project with a multi-million dollar grant from the NIH. In addition, The European Working Group for Legionella infections was formed in 1986. Members are scientists with an interest in improving knowledge and information on the clinical and environmental aspects of legionnaires' disease through developments in diagnosis, management and treatment of the disease. The volume brings together all of the lastest research on this pathogen, the interest in which is rapidly growing
Acinetobacter biology and pathogenesis by Mauro Bendinelli( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is currently increasing interest concerning the biology and disease caused by Acinetobacter species. Such interest, however, developed relatively slowly because of the necessity to clarify the confusing taxonomy of these organisms. Much work was needed to identify various species as members of this genus, to recognize their epidemiologic profile, their pathogenic role and their increasing importance as multi-antibiotic resistant organisms. In recent years improvement of genetic approaches, recognition of plasmids, integrons and chromosomal sources of resistance mechanisms aroused interest on the role of Acinetobacters in disease by many microbiologists and clinicians, especially internists and infectious disease specialists. In this regard, physicians are frequently confronted with extremely difficult therapeutic approaches for treatment and prevention of severe nosocomial infections due to multi antibiotic resistant Acinetobacter. Moreover, recent observations of community acquired infections have been reported, especially in patients with various risk factors such as immuno-deficiencies. Also, it is now becoming evident that Acinetobacter infections occur frequently in violent situations such as earthquake or war zones. The mechanisms of Acinetobacter virulence are becoming increasingly clear, providing new insights into their pathogenic role in community acquired infections. It is apparent the time is appropriate for detailed review of the increasing knowledge concerning important new information, both clinical and therapeutic, especially information concerning virulence, resistance mechanisms and typing of Acinetobacter spp. Many new findings are accumulatingin almost an exponential manner since publication of previous books on this subject in 1991 and 1996
Neuroimmune circuits, drugs of abuse, and infectious diseases by Herman Friedman( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on the relationship between the nervous and the immune system with regard to the effects of drugs of abuse and infections, including infection caused by the immunodeficiency virus which causes AIDS, the number one health problem worldwide. Chapters focus on the brain-immune axis, detailing the effects of drugs of abuse. It is well known that recreational drugs of abuse such as morphine, cocaine, and marijuana, as well as other drugs, including the legal drugs alcohol and nicotine, are used by large numbers of individuals. Serious concerns have been raised about the consequences of using such drugs, especially in relation to their effects on normal physiological responses, including immune mechanisms. It is now widely recognized not only that many drugs of abuse have serious consequences on normal parameters of neurologic and neuroendocrine systems in general but also that effects on those systems, in turn, may affect indirectly immunity and also directly affect immune systems. Much data has now been accumulated showing that drugs of abuse markedly alter the immune response in human populations as well as in experimental animals, both in vivo and in vitro. Furthermore, studies on microbial infections have shown that many drugs of abuse are associated with increased susceptibility to infectious diseases, especially opportunistic intracellular microorganisms, including viruses such as HIV which causes AIDS. The mechanisms whereby drugs of abuse increase the likelihood of infections by opportunistic microorganisms in humans as well as in experimental animals are delineated. This volume will further the understanding of the impact of drugs of abuse on the brain-immune axis and its relationship to immunomodulation and infection, especially that caused by the AIDS virus
