Krasner's Microbial Challenge : A Public Health Perspective - by Teri Shors & George Ealy (Paperback)
About this item
Microbes play a highly significant role in our daily lives as agents of infectious disease and are a major public health concern. The fourth edition of Krasner's Microbial Challenge addresses this topic and has been extensively revised and updated with the latest data in a fast-paced field. It focuses on human-microbe interactions and considers bacterial, viral, prion, protozoan, fungal and helminthic (worm) diseases. A chapter on beneficial aspects of microbes makes it clear that not all microbes are disease producers and that microbes are necessary for the sustenance of life on Earth. The response of the immune system, concepts of epidemiology, and measures of control from the individual to the international level to thwart potentially life-threatening epidemics are described.
