Control of Communicable Diseases Manual (17th Edition)

James Chin (2000)

The Control of Communicable Diseases Manual (CCDM) is revised and republished every five years to provide the most current information and recommendations for communicable-disease prevention. The CCDM is designed to be an authoritative reference for public health workers in official and voluntary health agencies, including those serving in the armed forces and other governmental agencies, and for health workers in foreign countries. School administrators and students of medicine and public health also will find the material useful. CCDM offers guidance to health workers in developing as well as developed countries. The 17th edition lists more than 136 groups of diseases from A-Z, including cholera, diphtheria, influenza, leprosy, malaria, meningitis, mumps, plague, pneumonia, syphilis, tuberculosis, and more. The CCDM is a study reference for NEHA's R.E.H.S./R.S., C.F.S.P., and C.E.H.T. exams.

Emerging Infections

Edited by Richard M. Krause (1998)

With contributions from eminent international researchers, this text covers emerging and re-emerging bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections; their life cycles; their strategies for evading host defenses; and their clinical features. The contributors discuss topics such as the history of infectious-disease outbreaks, population and the evolutionary biology of human pathogens, and current epidemiological models that describe how ecological and demographic changes produce new epidemics. Highlights include

* persisting problems in tuberculosis;

* pathogenic Escherichia coli O157:H7;

* the revival of Group A streptococcal diseases; and

* antibiotic resistance in bacteria.
