Item description for The Year in Infection, Volume 2 (Year in Infection) by M. Wilcox...
Throughout the 20th century infectious diseases remained the leading cause of premature mortality, but the increasing availability of drugs and vaccines to combat and prevent infection led many to believe that the threat from infectious disease in industrialized countries was all but over. The emergence and rapid spread of HIV-1, the evolution, spread, and persistence of drug resistant strains of viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and helminths, and the many difficulties encountered in the eradication of common childhood infections by mass vaccination have proved that this is not the case. A concise guide to infectious diseases, The Year in Infection 2004 keeps medical practitioners up-to-date on the latest developments in this field. From emerging and re-emerging diseases such as typhoid and tuberculosis, to the latest on antiretrovirals, this book covers the breadth and depth of the field. A panel of specialists has selected, reviewed, and summarized the latest research and put it into clinical context. They provide information on all aspects of infectious diseases in one easily accessible resource. Highlights from the new volume include: Mycology-diagnosis of fungal infections and new antifungal thearpies Antibiotic-resistant bacteria-pneumococcal vaccination and hand hygiene Emerging infections-thyphoid and tuberculosis HIV Infection-chemoprophylaxis and antiretroviral drug resistance
