As a result of recent research, a wide variety of etiological agents are now linked to infectious diarrheal diseases. Now, in addition to Salmonella, Shigella, Vibria cholerae, and intestinal parasites, Campylobacter fetus ss jejuni, Yersinia enterocolitica, and viruses, among others, must be considered when diagnosing and treating infectious diarrhea.
This up-to-the-minute volume provides--in self-contained papers by leading authorities--in depth coverage of the microbiological, epidemiological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of etiological agents responsible for Infectious Diarrheal Diseases. And, by focusing on factors leading to improved isolation and identification techniques, the book forms the basis for enhanced understanding of the relationships between microbes and human diseases.This outstanding work represents a unique resource in the efforts of clinical microbiologists, virologists, infectious disease specialists, pathologists, gastroenterologists, and medical laboratory directors and technologists to prevent and treat infectious diarrheal diseases. Furthermore, Infectious Diarrheal Diseases serves as a valuable supplement to the education of medical students interested in infectious diseases and gastroenterology.
Most of my life was spent in the halls of academe where I suppose I'm best known as a teacher of medical students, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. This reputation was gained at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons where I became professor of Microbiology and Pathology. On four occasions, the medical students actually voted me "Teacher of the Year" and "Outstanding Lecturer." I started writing fiction late in my career relying upon my medical and legal expertise and a vivid imagination.During my time at Columbia, I also directed the Clinical Microbiology Service at the Presbyterian Hospital, and in 1992 was the recipient of the prestigious Sonnenwirth Award in Clinical Microbiology.Before coming to Columbia I taught microbiology at the medical schools of the Universities of Florida and Vermont, after receiving a Ph.D. at the University of Maryland College of Medicine. After serving in the U.S. Navy, I was commissioned as a reserve officer in the U.S. Public Health Service. Assigned to the National Disaster Medical System, I organized disaster medical assistance teams and gave lectures on biological weapons.When I left Columbia, I established a consulting practice in microbiology and infectious disease, primarily as an expert witness. I participated in more than 80 cases around the U.S. One case even took me to Australia.Non-fiction publications include Current Procedures in Clinical Bacteriology, Infectious Diarrheal Diseases, Understanding Infectious Disease, The Biomedical Scientist as Expert Witness; several chapters in medical texts and more than 100 articles in medical journals. A love of flying started in the navy. Later, I became a pilot with instrument and commercial ratings. I joined the Civil Air Patrol where I flew search and rescue missions.My wife and I live in Connecticut where we enjoy gardening and travel. I continue to write.
