Herpesviruses and immunity by Peter G Medveczky( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 185 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

21 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 127 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
Opportunistic intracellular bacteria and immunity by Lois J Paradise( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 117 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
Staphylococcus aureus infection and disease by Allen Honeyman( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 112 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. This book, a volume in the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, presents chapters by the major researchers in the field
Chlamydia pneumoniae : infection and disease by Herman Friedman( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 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
In vivo models of HIV disease and control by Herman Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An AIDS vaccine is still elusive and HIV treatment continues to develop multidrug resistance at alarming rates. Because of the similarities between HIV and immune deficiency infections in a variety of animals, it is only natural that scientists use these animals as models to study pathogenesis, treatment, vaccine development and many other aspects of HIV. Part of the series Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis, this volume reviews the immune deficiency virus in a variety of hosts. Pathogenesis, vaccine and drug development, epidemiology, and the natural history of the monkey, mouse, cat, cow, horse, and other animal viruses are detailed and compared to HIV. Also included are chapters on the history and future of animal models, as well as a chapter on ethical and safety considerations in using animal models for AIDS studies
Acinetobacter biology and pathogenesis by Mauro Bendinelli( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 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
Legionella pneumophila : pathogenesis and immunity by Paul S Hoffman( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 80 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
