Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Written by veterinarians, medical microbiologists, and physicians with broad experience in the field of infectious diseases, this valuable physicians reference covers all aspects of epidemiology, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis, as well as therapy and prophylaxis of zoonotic diseases. Among the topics covered are zoonotic pathogens as agents of biological warfare, emergence and re-emergence of zoonotic diseases, opportunistic zoonotic infections, risks of xenotransplantation, imported zoonotic infections, food-borne zoonoses, and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. It also examines the most advanced diagnostic techniques, include PCR and ELISA, for the detection of sporadic infections even with rare organisms. Zoonoses is a valuable desk top reference for professionals in medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, and diagnostic laboratories and it will be especially helpful for those who are not experts in the field. Key Features Desk reference on epidemiology, diagnosis, therapy, and prophylaxis of zoonotic infections Includes zoonoses caused by viruses, prions, bacteria, fungi, and parasites Discusses zoonotic pathogens as agents of biological warfare Examines the most advanced diagnostic techniques
