The explosion in clinical testing has been especially rapid in virology, where emerging viruses and growing numbers of viral infections are driving advances. The Guide to Clinical and Diagnostic Virology offers a digestible view of the breadth and depth of information related to clinical virology, providing a practical, working knowledge of the wide array of viruses that cause human disease. Introductory chapters cover the basics of clinical virology and laboratory diagnosis of infections, including virus structure, life cycle, transmission, taxonomy, specimen types and handling, and a comparison of assays used for detection. Detailed sections on important topics include Viral pathogens and their clinical presentations Diagnostic assays and techniques, including culture-based, immunological, and molecular Prevention and management of viral infections, with guidance on biosafety, vaccines, and antiviral therapies The regulatory environment for laboratory testing, including regulatory requirements and assay performance and interpretation Critical concepts are carefully curated and concisely summarized and presented with detailed illustrations that aid comprehension, along with important highlights and helpful hints. These features, plus question sections that reinforce significant ideas and key concepts, make this an invaluable text for anyone looking for an accessible route through clinical and diagnostic virology. Laboratory technologists, medical students, infectious disease and microbiology fellows, pathology residents, researchers, and everyone involved with viruses in the clinical setting will find the Guide to Clinical and Diagnostic Virology an excellent text as well as companion to clinical virology references.

Infectious diseases constitute a major portion of illnesses worldwide, and microbiology is a main pillar of clinical infectious disease practice. Knowledge of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites is integral to practice in clinical infectious disease. Practical Medical Microbiology is an invaluable reference for medical microbiology instructors. Drs. Berkowitz and Jerris are experienced teachers in the fields of infectious diseases and microbiology respectively, and provide expert insight into microorganisms that affect patients, how organisms are related to each other, and how they are isolated and identified in the microbiology laboratory. The text also is designed to provide clinicians the knowledge they need to facilitate communication with the microbiologist in their laboratory. The text takes a systematic approach to medical microbiology, describing taxonomy of human pathogens and consideration of organisms within specific taxonomic groups. The text tackles main clinical infections caused by different organisms, and supplements these descriptions with clinical case studies, in order to demonstrate the effects of various organisms. Practical Medical Microbiology is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and researchers studying clinical microbiology, medical microbiology, infectious diseases, and virology.

Microbiology and virology laboratories provide a diagnostic service that supports the management of patients under the care of front-line clinicians. Despite the significant overlap, laboratory expertise and clinical patient management are traditionally viewed as independent entities. Trainees in the infection disciplines of microbiology, virology, infectious diseases, and tropical medicine have until recently received separate, and as a result, limited training. To address this problem, the UK replaced the FRCPath Part 1 examination for infectious disease trainees with a combined infection training (CIT) curriculum in 2015. Based on the idea of integration and collaboration within the field, CIT links laboratory expertise to clinical patient management. Tutorial Topics in Infection for the Combined Infection Training Programme is the first book covering the complete CIT curriculum. Following the format of the CIT certificate examination, each chapter ends with three single best answer multiple choice questions accompanied by in-depth discussions. This extensive content helps students appreciate the breadth of knowledge required, emphasises how the different aspects of the field are related, and is an essential tool for those preparing for the CIT certificate examination. Written by a multi-disciplinary team of medical microbiologists, virologists, infectious disease physicians, clinical scientists, biomedical scientists, public health specialists, HIV clinicians, and infection control nurses, this well-illustrated and easy to use book offers a unique insight into infectious diseases. It is the perfect primer for further study, a starting point for medical students and professionals wishing to learn more about the different topics within the infection specialty, and ideal for biomedical scientists looking to broaden their clinical understanding of the field beyond the diagnostic test.

Prior to the advent of rapid DNA sequencing in the late 90s, students were taught in depth about the physiology and ecology of microorganisms. There was a generally good understanding about the biology of each organism and how it interacted with its environment. Since then, the focus of research has shifted towards an analysis of nucleic acid sequences to determine possible cellular biochemistry or phylogeny. A microbial genome can now be sequenced in a matter of hours, and with the help of a panoply of software programmes the inner workings of the organism can be probed in great detail. However, there is now so much detail that the student or researcher tends to lose any sense of the underlying biology of their study organism. Microbiology has almost become a branch of molecular biology, with the biology getting lost in the molecular detail. This novel text reverses that trend by cutting through the molecular information overload and placing the new sequence-derived information in the context of the natural history of the organism in question. Each concise chapter has a fascinating and different story to tell, focussing on one pathogen or group of closely related pathogens and highlighting a particularly interesting and/or unusual feature. The aim is to abstract the relevant molecular and genomic information, and then to show how it provides insights into the biology of the organism as a whole. Microbiology of Infectious Disease is aimed at undergraduates, graduates, and researchers in microbiology, microbial ecology, disease ecology, and related areas. It is intended as a supplemental text for students to provide them with a detailed overview of the biology and natural history of the microorganisms they will routinely encounter and the factors that influence their pathogenicity and infectivity.
