The thoroughly revised and updated Third Edition of the acclaimed Modern Epidemiology reflects both the conceptual development of this evolving science and the increasingly focal role that epidemiology plays in dealing with public health and medical problems. Coauthored by three leading epidemiologists, with contributions from sixteen experts in a variety of epidemiologic sub-disciplines, this new edition is by far the most comprehensive and cohesive text on the principles and methods of epidemiologic research. The book covers a broad range of concepts and methods, including epidemiologic measures of occurrence and effect, study designs, validity, precision, statistical interference, and causal diagrams. Topics in data analysis range from Bayesian analysis, sensitivity analysis, and bias analysis, with an extensive overview of modern regression methods including logistic and survival regression, splines, hierarchical (multilevel) regression, propsensity scores and other scoring methods, and g-estimation. Special-topics chapters cover disease surveillance, ecologic studies, social epidemiology, infectious disease epidemiology, genetic and molecular epidemiology, nutritional epidemiology, environmental epidemiology, reproductive epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, and meta-analysis.

Jul 192019
 

Male Reproductive Cancers: Epidemiology, Pathology and Genetics presents a thoughtful, comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the etiology of the prostate gland and the testes, summarizing decades of research in the three most important etiological disciplines: epidemiology, pathology and genetics. This book is comprised of four distinct sections: Epidemiology, Pathology, Molecular Genetics, and Inherited Susceptibility, with each section divided into chapters categorized by disease. Section A reviews the epidemiology of prostate and testicular cancer, with an emphasis on clinical and environmental factors associated with these diseases. Section B begins by describing various pathological features of prostate cancer, followed by descriptions of the wide variety of testicular cancers as well as a brief section on the use of tumor markers for monitoring disease. Section C focuses on somatic genetic changes in prostate and testicular cancers using new technologies such as comparative genomic hybridization and gene expression profiling. Section D concentrates on the progress made toward understanding inherited susceptibility to prostate cancer and to testicular cancer.

Epidemiology: Key to Public Health, 2 Edition

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Epidemiology: Key to Public Health, 2 Edition
Jul 182019
 

This unique textbook presents the field of modern epidemiology as a whole; it does not restrict itself to particular aspects. It stresses the fundamental ideas and their role in any situation of epidemiologic practice. Its structure is largely determined by didactic viewpoints.
Epidemiology is the art of defining and investigating the influence of factors on the health of populations. Hence the book starts by sketching the role of epidemiology in public health. It then treats the epidemiology of many particular diseases; mathematical modelling of epidemics and immunity; health information systems; statistical methods and sample surveys; clinical epidemiology including clinical trials; nutritional, environmental, social, and genetic epidemiology; and the habitual tools of epidemiologic studies. The book also reexamines the basic difference between the epidemiology of infectious diseases and that of non-infectious ones.
The organization of the topics by didactic aspects makes the book ideal for teaching. All examples and case studies are situated in a single country, namely Vietnam; this provides a particularly vivid picture of the role of epidemiology in shaping the health of a population. It can easily be adapted to other developing or transitioning countries.
This volume is well suited for courses on epidemiology and public health at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels, while its specific examples make it appropriate for those who teach these fields in developing or emerging countries.

New to this edition, in addition to minor revisions of almost all chapters:
• Updated data about infectious and non-infectious diseases
• An expanded discussion of genetic epidemiology
• A new chapter, based on recent research of the authors, on how to build a coherent system of Public Health by using the insights provided by this volume.

Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection: Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Therapy

 Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection: Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Therapy
Jul 072019
 

Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most common intrauterine transmitted viral infection, with a tremendous impact on fetuses and newborns. In this book the history of this disease, its pathophysiological background, epidemiology and symptoms, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, will be discussed. Since economic aspects are gaining more and more importance in health politics, one chapter is dedicated to this issue in the context of congenital CMV infection. The content is based on the latest scientific findings and written in an understandable manner, allowing persons not working in the field of congenital CMV to also profit from it. Thus, this book is of interest for medical doctors, nurses, midwives, economists, but also for men and women who want to inform themselves about this topic.

Epigenetic Epidemiology

 Epidemiology  Comments Off on Epigenetic Epidemiology
Jun 062019
 

The exploding field of epigenetics is challenging the dogma of traditional Mendelian inheritance. Epigenetics plays an important role in shaping who we are and contributes to our prospects of health and disease. While early epigenetic research focused on plant and animal models and in vitro experiments, population-based epidemiologic studies increasingly incorporate epigenetic components. The relevance of epigenetic marks, such as DNA methylation, genomic imprinting, and histone modification for disease causation has yet to be fully explored. This book covers the basic concepts of epigenetic epidemiology, discusses challenges in study design, analysis, and interpretation, epigenetic laboratory techniques, the influence of of age and environmental factors on shaping the epigenome, the role of epigenetics in the developmental origins hypothesis, and provides the state of the art on the epigenetic epidemiology of various health conditions including childhood syndromes, cancer, infectious diseases, inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, psychiatric disorders, diabetes, obesity and metabolic disorders, and atherosclerosis.With contributions from: Peter Jones, Jean-Pierre Issa, Gavin Kelsey, Robert Waterland, and many other experts in epigenetics!

Emerging Epidemics: Management and Control

 Emergency, Epidemiology  Comments Off on Emerging Epidemics: Management and Control
May 122019
 

A global perspective on the management and prevention of emerging and re-emerging diseases
Emerging infectious diseases are newly identified or otherwise previously unknown infections that cause public health challenges.

Re-emerging infectious diseases are due to both the reappearance of and an increase in the number of infections from a disease that is known, but which had formerly caused so few infections that it was no longer considered a public health problem. The factors that cause the emergence or re-emergence of a disease are diverse.

This book takes a look at the world’s emerging and re-emerging diseases. It covers the diagnosis, therapy, prevention, and control of a variety of individual diseases, and examines the social and behavioral issues that could contribute to epidemics. Each chapter focuses on an individual disease and provides scientific background and social history as well as the current basics of infection, epidemiology, and control.

Emerging Epidemics: Management and Control offers five topics of coverage:

FUNDAMENTALS
• Epidemics fundamentals
• Disasters and epidemics
• Biosafety
RE-EMERGING EPIDEMICS
• Tuberculosis
• Plague
NEWLY EMERGING EPIDEMICS
• Leptospirosis
• Dengue
• Japanese Encephalitis
• Chikungunya Fever
• West Nile Virus
• Chandipura Virus Encephalitis
• Kyasanur Forest Disease
• Hantavirus
• Human, Avian, and Swine Influenza
• Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
• Nipah Virus
• Paragonimiasis
• Melioidosis
POTENTIAL EPIDEMICS
• Biowarfare and bioterrorism
• Food contamination and food terrorism
• Antimicrobial resistance
VECTOR CONTROL METHODS
