This Complete 3 Volume Set of the Handbook of Tuberculosis Examines in Detail this Infection and its Vaccination Process.DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c83460) has announced the addition of "Handbook of Tuberculosis, 3 Volume Set" to their offering.
Tuberculosis (TB), a deadly airborne disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Mycobacterium tuberculosis , takes the lives of almost 2 million people each year and is considered to be the most common infectious disease Infectious disease
A pathological condition spread among biological species. Infectious diseases, although varied in their effects, are always associated with viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, multicellular parasites and aberrant proteins known as prions. in the world. However, thanks to the efforts of researchers such as the volumes' lead editor, Dr. Stefan H. E. Kaufmann, there have been several recent advances in fighting the disease.
Dr. Stefan Kaufmann, the Founding Director of the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology The Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Infektionsbiologie ) is a research institute of the Max Planck Society located in Berlin. in Berlin and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the Charite at the Humboldt University, Berlin, has published more than 600 scientific articles and currently serves as President of the European Federation of Immunological Societies and Chair of the Immunology Division of the American Society of Microbiology. Dr. Kaufmann is considered the world's leading expert in the field of tuberculosis.
The Handbook of Tuberculosis, which explores the causes and available treatments of the widespread infection as well as current research into vaccination, is divided into three separate volumes covering different areas of study.
Volume 1: Molecular Biology molecular biology, scientific study of the molecular basis of life processes, including cellular respiration, excretion, and reproduction. The term molecular biology was coined in 1938 by Warren Weaver, then director of the natural sciences program at the Rockefeller and Biochemistry highlights the molecular mechanisms of tuberculosis. The book is co-edited by Dr. Eric Rubin, Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases infectious diseases: see communicable diseases. at the Harvard School of Public Health The Harvard School of Public Health is (colloquially, HSPH) is one of the professional graduate schools of Harvard University. Located in Longwood Area of the Boston, Massachusetts neighborhood of Mission Hill, next to Harvard Medical School and Cambridge, Massachusetts, . It provides the basis for the three-volume set by focusing on the genomic and genetic nature of the pathogen as well as current medical advancements that combat the bacterium on a molecular level.
Volume 2: Immunology and Cell Biology Cell biology
The study of the activities, functions, properties, and structures of cells. Cells were discovered in the middle of the seventeenth century after the microscope was invented. is co-edited by Dr. Warwick Britton, Professor of Medicine at the University of Sydney The University of Sydney, established in Sydney in 1850, is the oldest university in Australia. It is a member of Australia's "Group of Eight" Australian universities that are highly ranked in terms of their research performance. and head of the Mycobacterial mycobacterial
emanating from or pertaining to mycobacterium.
may be caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (see cutaneous tuberculosis), M. Research Program at the Centenary Institute, Sydney, Australia. It presents the pre-eminent resource for all aspects of cell biology and immunology of tuberculosis, including vaccine development.
Volume 3: Clinics, Diagnostics, Therapy and Epidemiology introduces a comprehensive overview of clinical aspects of tuberculosis, including drug resistance, epidemiological aspects and clinical trials. It is co-edited by Dr. Paul van Helden, Professor of Medical Biochemistry at Stellenbosch University, South Africa, Director of Laboratory Research for the Desmond Tutu Tuberculosis Centre and former President of the South African Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Each volume provides an essential resource to molecular and cell biologists, bacteriologists, immunologists, pathologists and pathophysiologists, clinicians and those working in the pharmaceutical industry and interested in world health.
VOLUME 1: MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY
VOLUME 2: IMMUNOLOGY AND CELL BIOLOGY
VOLUME 3: CLINICS DIAGNOSTICS THERAPY AND EPIDEMIOLOGY
