The current edition reflects the remarkable advances that have been made in our knowledge of microbes, their DNA sequence and the molecular mechanism of microbial disease. The changes to the new edition are based on the understanding of these aspects that have developed as a consequence from those studies. The contents of the book are in seven sections distributed over pages. It consists of a preface, an index and 48 chapters. The last chapters discuss the growth, survival and death of microorganisms, microbial metabolism and, finally, microbial genetics. A wide spectrum of readers may benefit from this book: medical students, life sciences undergraduate, postgraduate students, all medical laboratory technologist and senior microbiology professionals, also academics and microbiology teachers.

Description Medical microbiology concerns the nature, distribution and activities of microbes and how they impact on health and wellbeing, most particularly as agents of infection. Infections remain a major global cause of mortality and in most hospitals around one in ten of those admitted will suffer from an infection acquired during their stay.
The evolution of microbes presents a massive challenge to modern medicine and public health. The constant changes in viruses such as influenza, HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and SARS demand vigilance and insight into the underlying process. Now fully revised and updated, initial sections cover the basic biology of microbes, infection and immunity and are followed by a systematic review of infective agents, their associated diseases and their control.
A final integrating section addresses the essential principles of diagnosis, treatment and management. An unrivalled collection of international contributors continues to ensure the relevance of the book worldwide and complementary access to the complete online version on Student Consult further enhances the learning experience.
Medical Microbiology is explicitly geared to clinical practice and is an ideal textbook for medical and biomedical students and specialist trainees. It will also prove invaluable to medical laboratory scientists and all other busy professionals who require a clear, current and most trusted guide to this fascinating field. Table of Contents.
