Protein-carbohydrate interactions in infectious diseases

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Protein-carbohydrate interactions in infectious diseases
Jan 312019
 

This product is not available separately, it is only sold as part of a set. There are 750 products in the set and these are all sold as one entity, Protein-carbohydrate interactions is an exciting area of research with huge potential for development and exploration. These interactions are both widespread and diverse in biological processes and many play a crucial role in cellular recognition, attachment and adhesion. This is particularly true for host-pathogen interactions that lead to infectious diseases; as the surfaces of cells and pathogens display complex carbohydrate structures and carbohydrate binding proteins on their surface. Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions in Infectious Disease is part of the Biomolecular Science Series and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject, with contributions from leading experts in the field. Beginning with a general introduction, subsequent sections include: Atomic basis of protein-carbohydrate interactions, Structures and roles of Pseudomonas areuginosa lectins, Protein-carbohydrate interactions in enterobacterial infections, Retrocyclins: miniature lectins with potent antiviral activity, C-type lectin receptors that regulate pathogen recognition through the recognition of carbohydrates, Synthetic carbohydrate-based anti-malarial vaccines and glycobiology. With full colour throughout and an extensive bibliography this book is ideal for researchers interested in the area

Cytokines in the Treatment of Infectious Diseases: Options for the Modulation of Host Defense

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Cytokines in the Treatment of Infectious Diseases: Options for the Modulation of Host Defense
Jan 182019
 

Only recently a new range of agents has become available that are capable of stimulating and regulating host defense systems against microorganisms. Interleukins, interferons and haematopoietic growth factors are now being produced by the biotechnology industry and are being evaluated for clinical use in this area. Cytokines in the Treatment of Infectious Diseases provides a unique, up-to-date survey of this research area. The use of cytokines in a series of (groups of) infectious diseases is discussed in twelve succinct chapters, from model to clinical study, written by twenty-five expert authors from the world’s key institutes in this area. The book is aimed at microbiologists, immunologists, molecular biologists, cell biologists and other scientific disciplines in the field of biotherapy. It is required reading for physicians dealing with infectious diseases who wish to keep up to date with the developments in this field.

The Imaging of Infection and Inflammation

 Infectious Diseases, Radiology  Comments Off on The Imaging of Infection and Inflammation
Jan 152019
 

Despite 50 years of antibiotics, infection remains a major source of both morbidity and mortality. Immunosuppression, either secondary to drugs in transplant recipients or secondary to HIV, has expanded the number of microorganisms that are known to be pathogenic in man. Imaging of infection has a vital role both in the initial diagnosis and in the continuing management of patients with infection or suspected infection. Functional imaging using nuclear medicine techniques has a unique role to play in identifying sites of infection in a wide range of patients with varying clinical conditions. This book, written by a series of experts not just in the fields of nuclear medicine but also infectious disease and radiology, discusses the role of nuclear medicine in three parts: a review of the pathophysiology of infection; a technical description of those nuclear medicine techniques which can be used in imaging infection; an extensive systematic review including thoracic, abdominal and orthopaedic infection as well as a special section on the acutely ill patient, the immunosuppressed patient and the patient with pyrexia of unknown origin. This book will be of interest to all clinicians looking after patients with infection and who need to use imaging techniques. It will also be of use to radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians who will be using these techniques clinically.

Infectious Complications of Cancer

 Infectious Diseases, Oncology  Comments Off on Infectious Complications of Cancer
Jan 132019
 

Despite the major developments in the therapeutic armamentarium for the treatment of infection, the morbidity and mortality of this complication remains very high in patients with compromised defences. Cancer and its treatment represents a major predisposing condition to a variety of infections. These adverse events are still with us, in spite of much progress in the therapy of infectious disease, since cancer therapy is becoming more aggressive, yet further lowering the host’s capacity to cope with infections. Moreover, the pathogens adapt effectively to drugs, and at a pace that might outrun industry’s capability to produce new agents. Finally, new pathogens are appearing as a consequence of both selection and severe immunosuppression. Infection is so common among cancer patients that its diagnosis and management represent a daily challenge to all oncologists, who must continually strive to keep abreast of developments in the area. The present comprehensive review of the most crucial and challenging aspects of the infectious complications in cancer patients will help them to do just that.

Immunopathogenesis of HIV Infection

 Immunology, Infectious Diseases, Pathology  Comments Off on Immunopathogenesis of HIV Infection
Jan 022019
 

During the last 5 years, major advances have been made in our understanding of the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease and in the development of new potent antiviral agents. With regard to HIV pathogenesis, several recent observations have not only changed our perspectives of HIV disease, but have been critical for the design of therapeutic strategies. These oberservations include: 1. The delineation of the virologic and immunologic events associated with primary HIV infection. 2. The development of highly sensitive molecular techniques including polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays for the determination of HIV RNA in plasma, together with the identification of lymphoid tissue as the primary anatomic site for HIV replication and spreading. 3. The characterization of the dynamics of HIV infection. 4. The identification of chemokines with suppressor activity on HIV replication and the discovery of co-receptor molecules for HIV entry.

Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections: Systemic and Social Causes

 Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections: Systemic and Social Causes
Dec 132018
 


Medical error as defined in Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections: Systemic and Social Causes encompasses many categories including, but not limited to, medical error, hospital-acquired infections, medication errors, deaths from misdiagnosis, deaths from infectious diarrhea in nursing homes, surgical and post-operative complications, lethal blood clots in veins, and excessive radiation from CT scans.

When the deaths from these categories are counted they become the leading cause of fatality to Americans, outpacing cancer and heart disease. Add the numbers of fatalities (mortality) to the millions each year who are injured (morbidity) and whose quality of life is forever effected, and an epidemic of harm is defined.

The book describes the many systemic and social causes of medical error and iatrogenic events, all of which are cited in the peer-review science, that have a direct effect on the epidemic of patient injury, but are rarely or never considered. These systemic causes include factory medicine (for-profit medicine), staffing ratios in clinical and non-clinical departments, shift work, healthcare working conditions, lack of accountability, legal issues that conflict with patient safety issues, bullying and hierarchical relationships, training of healthcare workers that never rises to the level of risk, and injury to healthcare workers. The premise of the book is that if the systemic or social causes are not considered or changed, then medical error will continue to be an epidemic and no substantial impact in the numbers will be realized.

An expert with 30 years of experience as a health and safety officer in healthcare and as an activist for community health and safety issues, editor and author William Charney explores the issues surrounding medical errors and examines the science behind possible solutions. He presents an efficient dialogue that produces a more systemic exploration and targeting of the causes of medical error and drives an exacting message: we are dealing with an epidemic of harm, and unless systemic issues are solved, little will change to subdue the epidemic.
