Bacteria: The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful, 2012

Bacteria: The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful 
 Trudy M. Wassenaar 
ISBN-10: 1118107667 
ISBN-13: 978-1118107669 

 When most people hear the word "bacteria" they think of food poisoning; infections; and acute, debilitating, or fatal diseases. Yet, while E. coli, strep, and other bacterial pathogens certainly cause their share of misery in the world, they are only a tiny portion of a vast universe of microorganisms—the most basic of life forms. Without them, nothing else could live or grow on Planet Earth. Bacteria: The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful introduces you to this diverse, microscopic world and explains the fundamental microbiological concepts you need to explore the life and behavior of bacteria. Even if you have no previous background in the subject, the book's clear, jargon-free language tells you what you need to know about: 
  •  The origins and evolution of bacteria 
  •  Some of the fundamental ways in which bacteria have shaped the world 
  •  Bacteria commonly found in the healthy human body 
  • Antibiotics and the growing problem of resistance 
  • Marine microbiology, bacterial toxins, and enzymes 
  •  Bacterial genetics and genomics 
  •  Bacteria that survive in extreme environments, such as boiling water 
  •  And much more

Fundamentals of Inflammation, 2010

Fundamentals of Inflammation
Serhan Charles N., Ward Peter A., Gilroy Derek W., and Ayoub Samir S.
ISBN-10: 0521887291
ISBN-13: 978-0521887298

The acute inflammatory response is the body's first system of alarm signals that are directed toward containment and elimination of microbial invaders. Uncontrolled inflammation has emerged as a pathophysiologic basis for many widely occurring diseases in the general population that were not initially known to be linked to the inflammatory response, including cardiovascular disease, asthma, arthritis, and cancer. To better manage treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of these wide-ranging diseases, multidisciplinary research efforts are underway in both academic and industry settings. The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to the cell types, chemical mediators, and general mechanisms of the host's first response to invasion. World-class experts from institutions around the world have written chapters for this introductory text. The text is presented as an introductory springboard for graduate students, postdoctoral Fellows, medical scientists, and researchers from other disciplines who wish to gain an appreciation and working knowledge of current cellular and molecular mechanisms fundamental to inflammation.

Genes and Common Diseases: Genetics in Modern Medicine, 1st ed. 2007

Genes and Common Diseases: Genetics in Modern Medicine 
Alan Wright and Nicholas Hastie 
ISBN-10: 0521833396 
ISBN-13: 978-0521833394 

 Genes and Common Diseases presents an up-to-date view of the role of genetics in modern medicine, reflecting the strengths and limitations of a genetic perspective. The current shift in emphasis from the study of rare single gene disorders to common diseases brings genetics into every aspect of modern medicine, from infectious diseases to therapeutics. However, it is unclear whether this increasingly genetic focus will prove useful in the face of major environmental influences in many common diseases. The book takes a hard and self-critical look at what can and cannot be achieved using a genetic approach and what is known about genetic and environmental mechanisms in a variety of common diseases. It seeks to clarify the goals of human genetic research by providing state-of-the art insights into known molecular mechanisms underlying common disease processes while at the same time providing a realistic overview of the expected genetic and physiological complexity.

Handbook of Renal Biopsy Pathology, 2nd ed. 2008

Handbook of Renal Biopsy Pathology, 2nd ed. 2008
Alec J. Howie
ISBN-10: 0387746048
ISBN-13: 978-0387746043

This handbook shows how a diagnosis can be reached on a renal biopsy specimen and what information taken from a specimen is clinically significant and helpful. It shows how the diagnosis can be made starting from simple information, the clinical indication for biopsy, followed by interpretation of changes seen in the specimen. The emphasis is on common conditions and on the rule that diseases give characteristic clinical features. Essential information needed for an understanding of renal disorders is given simply and concisely. This includes accounts of the clinical presentation of renal disorders, their causes and pathogenesis, and their likely outcome. Other features include practical tips on the differentiation between possible diagnoses and information about eponyms.
