Hepatitis B Virus: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology) 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This volume serves as a reference for the dissemination of advances made in the study of Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). Hepatitis B Virus: Methods and Protocols details protocols and techniques ranging from cell culture studies to in vivo and clinical immunology. The chapters in this book discuss treatments of in vitro infection systems, analysis and quantification of cccDNA and its mutations; in vitro polymerase activity assays; cellular trafficking of core proteins; intracellular calcium metabolism; detection, cloning, and sequencing of HBV markers; and new strategies aimed at exploiting new mechanisms for drug discovery. The book also covers classical methods for resolution of extracellular viral particles by native gel electrophoresis, and methods for detecting HBV antigens in drug discovery. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Hepatitis B Virus: Methods and Protocols is a valuable tool for researchers to use toward their advanced studies in HBV.

Infection Control for Advanced Practice Professionals

51cuygdbawl-_sx332_bo1204203200_

Presents best practices for infection prevention and control in advanced practice Emphasizes team approach for infection control Case study provided for each chapter

——————————————————————————– This professional reference combines research on the best practices for infection control in clinical settings with essential information for advanced practice nurses and physician assistants. The book is organized by healthcare settings, and the coverage ranges from small practice offices to large hospitals and medical institutions. Each chapter is prefaced by a case study which is then incorporated into the theoretical material of the chapter as a continuing illustration. This format provides a reader-friendly instructional resource for advanced practice certifications and staff development.

From the Foreword

“At last is published a long-needed text for advanced practice nurses (APNs), providing them with the information essential to the care of essentially every patient they will encounter. Infection Control for Advanced Practice Professionals fills a void in the literature and recognizes the importance of a team approach to the prevention of infections in the variety of care settings in which APNs are practicing. The book is particularly timely and relevant because it appropriately places infection prevention solidly within the larger patient safety movement and affirms that preventing infections is everybody’s concern. In acute care settings, for example, infection control has occasionally been relegated to the infection prevention specialist (e.g., infection control nurse or hospital epidemiologist) or the infection control committee. This has shown to be ineffective in any setting. It is those who “touch” the patients and oversee their care who must assume the responsibility for preventing untoward events such as infections. While not all infections are preventable, there is indeed room for improvement. This comprehensive reference is a first and essential step in that direction!”

Clinical Virology Manual 5th Edition

41vknqa8ful-_sx348_bo1204203200_

The definitive clinical virology resource for physicians and clinical laboratory virologists
The clinical virology field is rapidly evolving and, as a result, physicians and clinical laboratory virologists must have a reliable reference tool to aid in their ability to identify and diagnose viral infections to prevent future outbreaks.

In this completely revised edition of the Clinical Virology Manual, Editor in Chief, Michael Loeffelholz, along with Section Editors, Richard Hodinka, Benjamin Pinsky, and Stephen Young, have complied expert perspectives of a renowned team of clinical virology experts and divided these contributions into three sections to provide
the latest information on the diagnosis of viral infections, including ebola, HIV and Human papillomavirus
state of the art diagnostic technologies, including next-generation sequencing and nucleic acid amplification methods
taxonomy of clinically important viruses such as polyomaviruses and zoonotic viruses
This comprehensive reference also includes three appendices with vital information on reference virology laboratories at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local public health laboratories, and international reference laboratories and laboratory systems.

Additionally, a new section Diagnostic Best Practices, which summarizes recommendations for diagnostic testing, and cites evidence-based guidelines, is included in each viral pathogens chapter.
Clinical Virology Manual, Fifth Edition serves as a reference source to healthcare professionals and laboratorians in providing clinical and technical information regarding viral diseases and the diagnosis of viral infections.

New Insights on Antiviral Probiotics: From Research to Applications 1st ed. 2017 Edition

51gebbrp3cl-_sx340_bo1204203200_

This book focuses on probiotics with antiviral activities. The “antiviral probiotic” is a new concept in medical sciences. Recently, studies have shown that antiviral probiotics can fight or prevent viral infections in many ways. The immunomodulation of mucosal immunity, production of antiviral compounds, virus trapping and the use thereof as vaccination vectors are the principal modes of action of antiviral probiotics. The author dedicates an entire chapter of the book to discussing the methods and techniques used to assess the antiviral activity of probiotic strains and their metabolites.
