Robert Koch a Life in Medicine and Bacteriology Book Review:

Robert Koch's story is a stirring example of how a lone country doctor can rise above all odds to become a true scientific revolutionary. Winner of the Nobel Prize in 1905, Koch is best known today for his discoveries of the causal agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax. His vital contributions to microbiological methodology also make him the founder of the field of bacteriology and central to the establishment of the disciplines of hygiene and public health.He was also a world traveler and made numerous important research expeditions to India (where he discovered the cause of cholera), Africa, and New Guinea. Koch's postulates, a series of guidelines for the experimental study of infectious disease, permitted Koch and his students to identify many of the causes of the most important infectious diseases of humans and animals. Even today Koch's postulates are considered whenever a new infectious disease arises.

Biophotonic Imaging as a Novel Approach to Study Infectious Diseases in the Bovine Book Review:

Conventional bacteriological methods to establish bacterial burden and distribution in infected tissues in vivo animal models typically require extensive bacteriological procedures and therefore are time consuming. An alternative approach has been suggested to use optical markers, such as luciferases, to labeled pathogens and monitor their progress and distribution in real time. The objective of the work presented in this document was to validate the use of Biophotonic Imaging (BI) through in vitro studies as a first step toward the development of in vivo models to study infectious disease in the bovine. For example, the feasibility of detecting bioluminescent Escherichia coli (E. coli-lux) from within the different bovine reproductive tract segments was studied. Up to 17% transference of photonic emissions (PE) was detected through the reproductive tract, suggesting that in vivo or in situ models may provide a novel approach for in real time screening of uterine infections in large farm animal models. Further in vitro research conducted toward the development of approaches for non invasive detection of lux-bacteria in bovine mastitis models demonstrated that detection through the bovine mammary gland might be limited due to tissue thickness and density. However, imaging of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus)-lux presence in teat-end skin wound in vitro models demonstrated promising results. Furthermore, trials demonstrated that imaging of lux-bacteria in milk samples, as means to estimate bacterial cell numbers (CFU), represent an efficient model to monitor bacterial progression in vivo mastitis models. According to these findings, the efficacy of an intramammary antimicrobial agent was evaluated in real time using S. aureus-lux in vivo mastitis models conducted in lactating dairy cows. Photonic emissions from milk samples collected from challenged quarters with S. aureus-lux resulted to be an excellent predictor of CFU, as demonstrated by the high and positive correlation (0.99; P

Serodiagnosis of the Infectious Diseases Book Review:

Among the several modes of diagnostic testing for infections, serological (i.e. antibody determination) studies are still heavily used. Serodiagnosis of the Infectious Diseases examines this topic in a contemporary context, and in so doing utilizes serodiagnosis of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection as the study model. Major serological methods are reviewed, as is the chronological development of serodiagnosis for this infection. There are many important parallels which are applicable to the serodiagnosis of any infectious disease, and history reminds us of how these commonalities need to be reviewed, whether for existing, emerging or newly discovered infectious diseases. Serodiagnosis of the Infectious Diseases is a valuable introduction for infectious disease specialists, bacteriology experts, diagnostic laboratorians and medical students, and technologists taking the microbiology diagnostic methods course.

Microbial Evolution and Co Adaptation Book Review:

Dr. Joshua Lederberg - scientist, Nobel laureate, visionary thinker, and friend of the Forum on Microbial Threats - died on February 2, 2008. It was in his honor that the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Microbial Threats convened a public workshop on May 20-21, 2008, to examine Dr. Lederberg's scientific and policy contributions to the marketplace of ideas in the life sciences, medicine, and public policy. The resulting workshop summary, Microbial Evolution and Co-Adaptation, demonstrates the extent to which conceptual and technological developments have, within a few short years, advanced our collective understanding of the microbiome, microbial genetics, microbial communities, and microbe-host-environment interactions.

Bacteriology for Nurses Book Review:

Bacteriology for Nurses provide nurses and others who are associated with medicine with a simple outline of basic bacteriology and the applications of bacteriology to medicine and to nursing. The fundamentals of medical bacteriology, namely the anatomy and physiology of bacteria, infection, and the body defenses against infection are discussed. The bacteria which cause common diseases of various sites in the body, such as the respiratory tract and the gastrointestinal tract, are considered together. Only common and important infections are included. Comprised of 15 chapters, this book begins with a historical background on bacteriology, followed by a discussion on the biology of bacteria. A classification of bacteria is then presented, and infections caused by bacteria are described. Subsequent chapters focus on body defenses against bacterial infections; rickettsiae and viruses; pyogenic and chronic bacterial infections; and collection of bacteriological specimens as part of bacteriological diagnosis. Infections of the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, and the nervous system are also analyzed. The final chapter is devoted to elementary parasitology. This monograph will be of interest to nurses as well as immunologists, bacteriologists, pathologists, physiologists, clinicians, and research workers in the field of medicine.

Emil Von Behring Book Review:

In 1901 Emil von Behring received the first Nobel Prize in medicine for serum therapy against diphtheria, a disease that killed thousands of infants annually. Diphtheria serum was the first major cure of the bacteriological era & its development generated novel procedures for testing, standardizing, & regulating drugs. Since the intro. of antibiotics, Behring & his work have largely been forgotten. In the first English-language scientific biography of Behring, Derek S. Linton seeks to restore Behring's reputation. He emphasizes Behring's seminal contributions to the study of infectious disease, the formation of modern immunology, & innovative research on specific remedies & vaccines against deadly microbial infections. Behring's research program is placed within the context of Imperial Germany's vibrant scientific culture. This biography explores his complex relations to the rival bacteriological schools of Robert Koch in Berlin & Louis Pasteur in Paris, the emergent German pharmaceutical industry, & the institutionalization of experimental therapeutic research. It also analyzes Behring's collaborations & controversies with leading med. researchers. The second part of the volume contains translations of 13 key articles by Behring & his associates on infectious diseases, immunology, drug testing, & therapeutics spanning 30 years of his remarkable scientific career.
