9780071818216: Sherris Medical Microbiology, Sixth Edition

The most dynamic, comprehensive, and student-friendly text on the nature of microorganisms and the fascinating processes they employ in producing infections disease

A Doody's Core Title for 2015!

For more than a quarter-of-a-century, no other text has explained the link between microbiology and human disease states better than Sherris Medical Microbiology. Through a vibrant, engaging approach, this classic gives you a solid grasp of the significance of etiologic agents, the pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the basis of therapy for infectious diseases.

Part I of Sherris Medical Microbiology opens with a non-technical chapter that explains the nature of infection and the infection agents. The following four chapters provide more detail about the immune response to infection and the prevention, epidemiology, and diagnosis of infectious disease. Parts II through V form the core of the text with chapters on the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases. Each of these sections opens with chapters on basic biology, pathogenesis, and antimicrobial agents.

Features and Learning Aids:

  • 57 chapters that simply and clearly describe the strains of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can bring about infectious diseases
  • Explanations of host-parasite relationship, dynamics of infection, and host response
  • A clinical cases with USMLE-style questions concludes each chapter on the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases
  • All tables, photographs, and illustrations are in full color
  • Clinical Capsules cover the essence of the disease(s) caused by major pathogens
  • Margin Notes highlight key points within a paragraph to facilitate review
  • In addition to the chapter-ending case questions, a collection of 100 practice questions is also included

Sometime in the future, an improved understanding of current worldwide infectious disease scourges will lead to their control. Hopefully, you will find the basis for that understanding presented in the pages of this book.

Product Description:

No other text clarifies the link between microbiology and human disease states like Sherris Medical Microbiology

For more than a quarter-of-a-century Sherris has been unmatched in its ability to help readers understand the nature of microorganisms and their role in the maintenance of health or causation of disease. Through a dynamic, engaging approach, this classic text gives students a solid grasp of the significance of etiologic agents, the pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the basis of therapy for infectious diseases.

An introduction to diseases caused by infectious agents and to the basics of the character of infectious agents begins the book. This is followed by several chapters that describe the immune reaction to these infectious agents, sterilization, control of infections with anti-infective drugs, and how they are detected in a diagnostic laboratory. These chapters set the stage for the rest of the book, which describes the various infectious agents that cause disease in humans. Starting with viruses and moving through to bacteria, fungi, and parasites, these chapters describe how the agents cause disease and how the infections are detected and treated.

  • More than 400 USMLE-style questions
  • Nearly 200 full-color illustrations
