Rhinovirus Infections Book Review:

Rhinovirus Infections: Rethinking the Impact on Human Health and Disease provides a timely review of the impact of rhinovirus infections on human health. It identifies disease mechanisms relating to the virus, human host and environmental factors. This viewpoint allows us to look forward to the development of treatments for a virus for which treatment options are currently non-existent. By providing detailed insights into this virus, its host and the environmental factors that play into rhinovirus induced diseases, this book explains disease mechanisms and summarizes existing and developing therapeutic approaches for better research, diagnosis and potential treatments. Provides insight into viral diversity and identification of virulence factors, showing how the subtype of rhinovirus affects susceptibility to diseases Explores host and environmental factors, explaining how age, health status, genotype, lifestyle and environment influence the outcome of a rhinovirus infection Covers vaccines and treatments, discussing the health burden associated with rhinovirus infections and the driving development of an increasing array of treatment approaches

The Microbe-Host Interface in Respiratory Tract Infections Book Review:

The molecular pathogenesis of microbial agents responsible for respiratory tract infections (RTIs) has been the focus of much research in recent years. The emphasis has been on developing new treatments such as novel antimicrobials and more effective vaccines. Significant attention has also been paid to improving molecular diagnostic methods to identify RTI-causing microbes, as well as understanding the host response to them. The Microbe-Host Interface in Respiratory Tract Infections presents an overview of the current knowledge in this area. It provides us with the first coherent picture of emerging strategies for controlling the microbes responsible for RTIs. This comprehensive volume is divided into three sections: the first reviews topics of general interest; the second focuses on bacterial and atypical RTIs; while the final section covers viral RTIs. Each of the chapters is the work of two or more of the top scientists in the field writing about their own pioneering research. Various chapters comment on vaccines, antibiotics, and molecular diagnostic methods. This cutting-edge work is essential reading for research microbiologists and other scientists involved in the investigation and treatment of RTIs.

Public Health and Infectious Diseases Book Review:

Emerging infectious diseases may be defined as diseases being caused by pathogens only recently recognized to exist. This group of diseases is important globally, and the experience of the last 30 years suggests that new emerging diseases are likely to bedevil us. As the global climate changes, so changes the environment, which can support not only the pathogens, but also their vectors of transmission. This expands the exposure and effects of infectious disease and, therefore, the importance of widespread understanding of the relationship between public health and infectious disease. This work brings together chapters that explain reasons for the emergence of these infectious diseases. These include the ecological context of human interactions with other humans, with animals that may host human pathogens, and with a changing agricultural and industrial environment, increasing resistance to antimicrobials, the ubiquity of global travel, and international commerce. * Features the latest discoveries related to influenza with a newly published article by Davidson Hamer and Jean van Seventer * Provides a listing of rare diseases that have become resurgent or spread their geographic distribution and are re-emergent * Highlights dengue and malaria, as well as agents such as West Nile and other arboviruses that have spread to new continents causing widespread concerns * Includes discussions of climate influencing the spread of infectious disease and political and societal aspects

Common Cold Book Review:

The common cold is unlike any other human disease because of two f- tors: firstly, it is arguably the most common human disease and, secondly, it is one of the most complex diseases because of the number of viruses that cause the familiar syndrome of sneezing, sore throat, runny nose and nasal congestion. These two factors have made a ‘cure’ for the common cold one of the most difficult scientific and clinical endeavours (a topic often d- cussed in the popular media, where comparisons are made with the ease of putting a man on the moon). The present book brings together a wide range of experts from epidemiologists to virologists and pharmacologists to look at recent advances in our knowledge of the common cold. In some respects the book is unique, as it focuses on the common cold, a syndrome so familiar to the layperson but one that receives little attention from the scientist and clinician. The common cold can be viewed from many different aspects as illustrated in Figure 1. The core knowledge for understanding the common cold must first come from virology and this is discussed in several chapters of the book. There have been major advances in this field because of the use of new methods of detecting viruses such as polymerase chain reaction techniques that have greatly aided our understanding of the epidemiology of viruses associated with common cold.

Infections of the Head and Neck Book Review:

Why another series on infectious disease? The question is a fair one in view of the proliferation of monographs, texts, and periodicals on the vast subject of infectious disease. The goal of this series is to provide an additional service to the clinician in the form of clinical information not usually assembled in one convenient volume. One type of monograph presented in this series will cover a specific infection, detailing microbiologic research and clinical aspects. It is hoped that such a compilation will be helpful in both its thoroughness and breadth to the clinician interested in this particular problem. The other type of monograph that this series will provide will discuss a clinical presentation that comprises many possible specific etiologies, such as the present volume, Infections of the Head and Neck. Using this volume as an example, one must presently refer to a multitude of sources to cover the diseases discussed in this text, even though they must all be considered by the clinician in the differential diagnosis of specific patients. Volumes in the series will be multi-authored, giving us the opportunity to invite authorities in each specific area to contribute their expertise and experience. Regular revisions are planned so that each volume will remain as current as it is thorough.

Respiratory Infections, An Issue of Clinics in Laboratory Medicine, Book Review:

Acute respiratory infections are responsible for an estimated 4 million deaths annually worldwide, and are the leading cause of death in children younger than 5 years. Over 1 million people in the United States are hospitalized each year with pneumonia. Mycobacterium tuberculosis infects one third of world’s population. There are more than 1 million tuberculosis-related deaths worldwide each year. Emerging resistance to multiple available antimicrobial agents has hampered the ability to treat tuberculosis and hospital-acquired respiratory infections. The laboratory diagnosis of respiratory infections is an important part of patient management and treatment. In addition to culture isolation of pathogens, advances have been made in a number of non-culture methods. This issue of Clinics in Laboratory Medicinee reviews state-of-the-art laboratory diagnosis of respiratory infections, as well as the testing of susceptibility to antibiotics and antiviral agents. Among some of the respiratory infections covered are: Cystic fibrosis infections; Pertussis; Pharyngitis; Fungal infections. Among the diagnostic tests are: Interferon gamma release assays; Molecuar diagnosis of TB; Urine antigen tests and discussion of Antibiotic resistance in nosocomial respiratory infections.
