    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 87.99

    Challenging Concepts in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology details over 30 challenging cases from a wide area of infectious diseases, medical microbiology and virology and includes topics ranging from typhoid fever to secondary syphilis.This case-based learning book ideal for trainees and speciality registrars. Each case is supported by... more...

  • The Human Microbiota and Microbiomeby J. R. Marchesi

    CABI 2014; US$ 160.00

    Thousands of different microbial species colonize the human body, and are essential for our survival. This book presents a review of the current understanding of human microbiomes, the functions that they bring to the host, how we can model them, their role in health and disease and the methods used to explore them. Current research into areas such... more...

  • Antibiofilm Agentsby Kendra P. Rumbaugh; Iqbal Ahmad

    Springer 2014; US$ 209.00

    This book provides a survey of recent advances in the development of antibiofilm agents for clinical and environmental applications. The fact that microbes exist in structured communities called biofilms has slowly become accepted within the medical community. We now know that over 80% of all infectious diseases are biofilm-related; however, significant... more...

  • Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Signaling in Immunology and Infectious Diseasesby Michael B. A. Oldstone; Hugh Rosen

    Springer 2014; US$ 189.00

    This volume focuses on the role of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and its analogs in the induced sequestration of lymphocytes in secondary lymphoid organs or in the microenvironment of tissues involved in infection or autoimmune disease. Initial chapters define the pathways to understand S1P signaling. They cover the organization of signaling systems,... more...

  • Bacterial Piliby M. A. Barocchi; J. L. Telford

    CABI 2014; US$ 160.00

    Bacterial pili play important roles as environmental sensors, in host colonization and in biofilm formation, enabling bacteria to interact with the environment, with surfaces and with other bacteria and host cells. Most bacteria, both Gram positive and Gram negative, and almost all bacterial pathogens, are piliated. This book discusses the synthesis,... more...

  • Insight into Influenza Viruses of Animals and Humansby Sanjay Kapoor; Kuldeep Dhama

  • Cancer Biology and the Nuclear Envelopeby Eric C. Schirmer; Jose I. de las Heras

    Springer 2014; US$ 279.00

    Nuclear envelope (NE) defects have been linked to cancer biology since the mid-1800s, but it was not until the last few years that we have begun to understand these historical links and to realize that there are myriad ways that the NE impacts on tumorigenesis. The NE? is a complex double membrane system that encloses the genome while providing structural... more...

  • Tumor-Induced Immune Suppressionby Dmitry I. Gabrilovich; Arthur A. Hurwitz

    Springer 2014; US$ 239.00

    Tumor-Induced Immune Suppression - Prospects and Progress in Mechanisms and Therapeutic Reversal presents a comprehensive overview of large number of different mechanisms of immune dysfunction in cancer and therapeutic approaches to their correction.

  • Cancer Virusby Dorothy H. Crawford; Alan Rickinson; Ingólfur Johannessen

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 20.99

    The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) was discovered in 1964. At the time, the very idea of a virus underlying a cancer was revolutionary. Cancer is, after all, not catching. Even now, the idea of a virus causing cancer surprises many people. But Epstein-Barr, named after its discoverers, Sir Anthony Epstein and Dr Yvonne Barr, is fascinating for other reasons... more...

  • Sendai Virus Vectorby Yoshiyuki Nagai

    Springer 2014; US$ 189.00

    Sendai virus (SeV) is not just a mouse pathogen but is evolving into a cutting-edge component of biotechnology. SeV reverse genetics originating from a pure academic need to settle long-held questions in the biology and pathogenicity of nonsegmented negative strand RNA viruses (Mononegavirales) is about to bear the impressive fruit of multipurpose... more...
