An annual death toll of 2 million, coupled with rising drug resistance, highlights the need for the development of new drugs, better diagnostics, and a tuberculosis (TB) vaccine. Addressing these key issues, A Color Atlas of Comparative Pathology of Pulmonary Tuberculosis introduces TB histopathology to the non-histopathologists, students, scientists, and doctors working, learning, and teaching in the field of TB. It contains 100 color photographs and illustrations that bring clarity to the information presented. The atlas takes the unusual approach of covering multiple species histopathology, arguably the first and quite possibly the only resource to do so. It provides a simple, annotated, and visual presentation of the comparative histopathology of TB in human and animal models. The editors have compiled information that helps TB scientists to distinguish between the features of all major animal models available and to use them with their strengths and limitations in mind. The book provides guidance for selecting the best animal model(s) to answer specific questions and to test the efficacy of drug candidates.

Pediatric pathology has been a recognized sup-specialty of pathology for almost two decades. Today pathology training programs are required to provide education in pediatric pathology. In addition to pediatric pathology specialists, many general and community-based pathologists regularly handle pediatric specimens. A working knowledge of current pediatric pathology is essential for appropriate handling of these cases. The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology covers the broad range of pediatric diseases that a pathologist will likely encounter and is written by well-known leaders in this field. Coverage includes both frequent and less commonly seen cases, and each discussion presents a concise summary of the salient features of the disease along with expertly selected, high-quality color images. The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology is a practical working resource for every pathologist who sees pediatric cases as well as the pathology trainee. The atlas features approximately 1,100 high-quality images as well as important staging and prognostic (including molecular) parameters. Features of the Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology include: Comprehensive coverage of pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology Each chapter is presented by a recognized expert Practical presentation: concise text highlights diagnostic features making the atlas an outstanding resource for the practitioner Illustrated throughout with approximately 1,100 full-color images

Author: Herbert Wolf
Dental hygiene professionals need the very best scientific and clinical knowledge at their fingertips to effectively assist in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontology puts the needs of hygienists center stage, providing a detailed and brilliantly illustrated reference for daily practice, and a wealth of knowledge to underpin successful diagnosis and treatment.A firm grasp of the pathogenesis of periodontal disease is essential for the hygienist. This book clearly outlines the vital concepts in immunology, genetics and destruction and repair of periodontal tissues. The innovations and new scientific evidence in these fields are lucidly described and invoke new approaches to etiology, diagnosis and treatment.The importance of links between oral health and general systemic health cannot be overestimated. Periodontology conclusively demonstrates the necessity for patient and clinician to keep these associations to the forefront of risk assessment and treatment. The benefits of this integrated approach will be clearly seen in the focus on prevention of oral disease, a primary objective for all hygiene professionals. The book shows how the systemic considerations influence the combination of diagnostic, therapeutic, pharmacological and mechanical treatment strategies.Frequently encountered disorders such as gingival recession and pathological changes in the peridontium are comprehensively documented and the range of prevention and treatment options set out. The inclusion of specialized subjects such as oral manifestations of HIV disease and the developments in its treatment serve to underline the key position of the hygienist in the wider health care team.The exceptional color photos throughout will be an indispensable guide to clinicians and students, and indeed a welcome resource for educators. From diagnostic tools such as depictions of levels of bleeding right through to detailed instrumentation techniques, these photos and their concise accompanying text form an outstanding best-practice guide.Concluding with the American Academy of Periodontologys Classification of Periodontal Disease, Periodontology will augment the knowledge and skills of dental hygienists, keeping practitioners up to date and providing students with the essential knowledge base for a career in periodontics.

Within this one volume both basic science and clinical immunology are demystified for the medical and other health sciences student. The basic immunological processes are described first, with a level of detail restricted to what is appropriate for medical (and similar) curricula. In the second part of the book, immunological mechanisms behind major diseases of the various body systems are explained. Throughout the text clinical details are highlighted and more in-depth material is differentiated from the main text.
