The mycobacteria cause two of the world's most serious infections: tuberculosis and leprosy; as well as a range of infections which occur particularly in HIV/AIDS patients.
This 2nd edition has been completely revised by John Grange, one of the leading world authorities on the subject, and addresses the major developments in the subject over the last decade: advances in drug treatment of leprosy, tuberculosis and other mycobacterial diseases; the introduction of monoclonal antibodies; cell cloning techniques, and genetic engineering techniques.
'Mycobacteria and Human Disease' provides a comprehensive review of the mycobacteria, their place in the environment, the way in which they interact with the living host, the nature of the diseases they cause and the available means of diagnosing, preventing and curing such disease, for medical microbiologists in practice and training.
