In one handy book, this reference gathers all the necessary information on 14 of the most commonly used dangerous groups of pathogens in biosafety level 3 and 4 laboratories. All the chapters are uniformly structured, with a brief overview of the microbiology, pathology, epidemiology and detection methods for each group.3/5(1). Medical Microbiology. This book introduces the basic methods for infectious disease epidemiology and case studies of important disease syndromes and entities. Methods include definitions and nomenclature, outbreak investigations, disease surveillance, case control studies, cohort studies, laboratory diagnosis, molecular epidemiology. Medical microbiology concerns the nature, distribution and activities of microbes and how they impact on health and wellbeing, most particularly as agents of infection. Infections remain a major global cause of mortality and in most hospitals around one in ten of those admitted will suffer from an infection acquired during their stay.

The apparent success of that book in bridging the gap between texts on basic microbiology and those on clinical infectious diseases led to editing this one on bacterial infections, the chapters of which are organized in exactly the same format of 12 units: introduction, historical background, methodology. Urinary tract infections (UTIs), caused primarily by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC), are among the most common bacterial infections in humans, costing billions of dollars annually in medical expenses and causing significant morbidity with recurrent and chronic disease. Many details of the molecular pathogenesis of UPEC UTI have been. Publisher Summary.
