Contents:
Section 1 The adversaries -- Pathogens -- Pathogens as parasites -- The bacteria -- The viruses -- The fungi -- The protozoa -- The helminths -- The arthropods -- Prions -- The host parasite relationship -- section 2 The adversaries -- host defences -- The innate defences of the body -- Adaptive immune responses bring specificity -- Cooperation leads to effective immune responses -- pt. 3 the conflicts -- Background to the infectious diseases -- Entry, exit and transmission -- Immune defences in action -- Spread and replication -- Parasite survival strategies and persistent infections -- Pathological consequences of infection -- section 4 clinical manifestation and diagnosis of infections by body system -- The clinical manifestations of infection -- Upper respiratory tract infections? -- Lower respiratory tract infections -- Urinary tract infections -- Sexually transmitted infections -- Gastrointestinal tract infections -- Obstetric and perinatal infections -- Central nervous system infections -- Infections of the eye -- Infections of the skin, soft tissue, muscle and associated systems -- Vector-borne infections -- Multisystem zoonoses -- Fever of unknown origin -- Infections in the compromised host -- section 5 Diagnosis and control -- Diagnosis of infection and assessment of host defence mechanisms -- Epidemiology and control of infectious diseases -- Attacking the enemy: antimicrobial agents and chemotherapy -- Protecting the host: vaccination -- Active, passive and adoptive immunotherapy -- Infection control
Summary: Learn all the microbiology and basic immunology concepts you need to know for your courses and exams. Learn about infections in the context of major body systems and understand why these are environments in which microbes can establish themselves, flourish, and give rise to pathological changes. This systems-based approach to microbiology employs integrated and case-based teaching that places the 'bug parade' into a clinical context
