Biology Of The Microsporidia from the Author: Lee A. Bulla. This is the introductory volume of a new series to be issued under our general editorship. With the development of an unpre cedented increase in interest in comparative pathobiology, we are of the opinion and intent that Comparative PathobioZogy should become the focal point for the publication of definitive reviews and the proceedings of significant symposia in this area of modern biomedical science. Although the term is now in common use, the question is still sometimes raised as to what "pathobiology" includes. This broad area of modern biology includes but extends beyond traditional pathology. It also encompasses studies directed at understanding the biology, chemistry, and physics of infectious agents, in cluding how they contact and invade the effected organism; the reactions of hosts to such agents, as well as to abiotic invaders; the ecologic parameters which facilitate infection; and the development of tools essential for the understanding of hast pathogen interactions. In other words, pathobiology is inter disciplinary and incorporates all of those aspects of biology, chemistry, and physics which directly or indirectly permit greater understanding of the nature of infectious and noninfectious diseases and the possible implications of such in biomedicine, agriculture, and environmental science. By "comparative" is meant an analytical and critical evaluation of comparable processes as they apply to all categories of animals, invertebrates as well as poikilothermic and homeothermic verte brates.

Comparative Pathobiology from the Author: Victor Sprague. Volume two of this series is a comprehensive review of the current knowledge of microsporidian taxonomy. It is a supplement to volume one that deals with the biology of the microsporidia. Together, they provide the broadest possible coverage of this group of microorganisms that has received considerable attention because of their importance in invertebrate and vertebrate disease. Volume two contains the most complete published list of micro sporidian species, outlines their classification and phylogeny, and provides a zoological distribution. The driving force in compiling all of this information was Victor Sprague of the University of Maryland. Dr. Sprague has spent his scientific career researching many different facets of micro sporidia and no other person is regarded as expert as he. Certainly, the wealth of information contgined herein cannot be found elsewhere in any single coverage. Therefore, the publi cation of Volumes one and two sets a milestone for microspori diology and it is our hope that the readers of these two volumes will share the enthusiasm of the authors and contributors and will reap rich reward from their unique and profound insight.

Molecular Biology Of Food And Water Borne Mycotoxigenic And Mycotic Fungi from the Author: R. Russell M. Paterson. A part of the Food Microbiology Series, Molecular Biology of Food and Water Borne Mycotoxigenic and Mycotic Fungi reveals similarities between fungi present in/on food and water and those that cause human fungal diseases. The book covers food borne mycotoxigenic fungi in depth and examines food borne fungi from the standpoint of mycoses (i.e. fungal growth on humans) as well as mycotoxin diseases and includes contributions from a wide range of international experts in food borne fungal pathogens research. Designed to be a single source on food borne human fungal pathogens including mycotoxigenic fungi, the book presents: Basic concepts of developments in nomenclature and bar coding Authoritative description of key molecular techniques applicable to food borne fungal pathogens research State-of-art review of molecular biology, genome structure, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, control, and prevention of major food borne fungal pathogens Thorough discussion of alternative methods to those involving nucleic acids The book provides higher-level knowledge of which foods and water can contain potentially dangerous fungi. It includes background information on basic mycology, covers identification methods, and discusses molecular biological and other biochemical methods, and supplies information on vaccines against fungi. It is a reliable roadmap to future developments in improved, innovative molecular methods.

Treatise On Zoology Anatomy Taxonomy Biology The Gregarines 2 Vols from the Author: Isabelle Desportes. Gregarines are apicomplexans and exclusively parasites of invertebrates. After the basic publication in the Traité de Zoologie by Grassé in 1953, this second edition is proposed to update the knowledge with information provided by new technologies such as electron microscopy, biochemistry and molecular biology and to enlighten their high diversity of adaptation to invertebrate hosts living in a diversity of biotopes. Morphological features, life cycles, host-parasite interactions and taxonomical data are most informative for the understanding of the evolution of the phylum Apicomplexa.

Infectious Diseases In Immunocompromised Hosts from the Author: Vassil St. Georgiev. Because of limited access to medical libraries and medical journals, the majority of clinicians may find it difficult to keep informed on the latest developments in drug manufacture and treatment of infectious diseases in immunocompromised patients. This new handbook strives to fulfill the need for information in this area of medicine. This is the first book on drug development and treatment of infectious diseases in immunocompromised hosts. It integrates both results from large-scale clinical trials and single cases as well as small groups of patients. It covers bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal infections, including a wide array of diseases. Infectious Diseases in Immunocompromised Hosts encompasses not only opportunistic infections associated exclusively with immunocompromised patients, but also common infections that become life-threatening for immunosuppressed individuals.
