Medical Microbiology: A Guide to Microbial Infections : Pathogensis, Immunity, Laboratory Diagnosis, and Control

Front Cover
David Greenwood, Richard C. B. Slack, J. F. Peutherer
Churchill Livingstone, 1997 - Medical - 690 pages
The book is divided into six sections, with the bulk of the text giving an organism-based systematic coverage of microbiology. Each organism is considered under a standard set of headings: description/pathogenesis/clinical features/laboratory diagnosis/treatment/epidemiology. Immunology is covered where it is of direct relevance to the understanding of microbial infection. The book has been fully updated to keep upwith this rapidly changing subject; for example, in relation to viruses (such as HIV), antiviral drugs, and immunology.
