Fungal Allergy and Pathogenicity (Chemical Immunology and Allergy, Vol. 81)

The importance of fungal organisms as allergens and pathogens has been increasing considerably over the last decade. This is due, on the one hand, to a general increase in the incidence of allergies, but also to the growing number of immunocompromized individuals such as AIDS patients or transplant recipients. This book summarizes what is currently known about the allergens of Candida, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Alternaria, Coprinus, and Psilocybe, among others, and describes the application of recombinant allergens for diagnosis and new forms of therapy. The virulence factors and defense mechanisms against Aspergillus and Candida infections are discussed as are the various causes of superficial skin infections with fungi and the aerobiology of fungal spores and mycelia. A comprehensive chapter on fungal toxins and their importance for human and animal health is included, followed by a summary of the present state of fungal genome sequencing. Finally, the now generally accepted new sequence-based systematics and phylogeny of allergenic and pathogenic fungi is presented. A glossary explains the highly specialized terminology of clinical and systematic mycology for the nonspecialist. Summarizing the most up-to-date molecular and clinical findings, this publication will be of interest not only to allergologists, mycologists and biologists, but to all clinicians who want to learn more about clinically important fungi as well as to lawyers concerned with lawsuits on ‘sick building syndrome’.

Opportunistic Infections: Toxoplasma, Sarcocystis, and Microsporidia (World Class Parasites)

Opportunistic Infections: Toxoplasma, Sarcocystis, and Microsporidiawill focus on two important Genera of Apicomplexan parasites, Toxoplasma gondii and Sarcocystis species, and the medically important members of the Phylum Microsporida. We have been fortunate in obtaining excellent contributions from many experts in the field.
Volumes in the “World Class Parasites” book series are written for researchers, students and scholars who enjoy reading about excellent research on problems of global significance. Each volume focuses on a parasite, or group of parasites, that has a major impact on human health, or agricultural productivity, and against which we have no satisfactory defense. The volumes are intended to supplement more formal texts that cover taxonomy, life cycles, morphology, vector distribution, symptoms and treatment. They integrate vector, pathogen and host biology and celebrate the diversity of approach that comprises modern parasitological research.

Moffet’s Pediatric Infectious Diseases: A Problem-Oriented Approach Fourth Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0781729432]

All chapters are organized by anatomic syndrome and guide you through each step in the management process from classifying the patient’s illness to recognizing life-threatening emergencies, developing a logical differential diagnosis, pinpointing the disease, and treating the patient.

All the features you’ve come to trust…

  • Patient-oriented approach helps you focus on the patient rather than the pathogen, and offers a complete review of the diagnostic and treatment process.
  • Step-by-step guidelines take you logically from evaluation and work-up to diagnosis and therapeutic decision-making.
  • Expert authors combine the scientific integrity and practicality established by Dr. Moffet, with the latest advances and their own authoritative views.

Plus a wealth of NEW MATERIAL…

  • More comprehensive coverage includes greater detail in all subject areas, as well as new material on pathogens identified since the last edition—including SARS-coronavirus, hantavirus, human metapneumovirus, West Nile virus, and potential agents of bioterrorism.
  • More treatment-centered approach helps you focus on the therapeutic process—from diagnostic evaluation and testing to treatment selection.
  • All chapters have been extensively revised and updated, and two new chapters have been added addressing HIV Infection and AIDS, and Congenital Immune Deficiency Syndromes.
