The aim of this book is to highlight selected problems with new and old diseases, e.g. transplantation rabies and rabies transmitted by bats, coinfection of tuberculosis and HIV, etc. The book also emphasizes on recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of various infectious diseases. It has a general section on infectious diseases and their prevention. Authors of various chapters are experienced workers in their field and thus there are plenty of references in this book. The book is expected to be of immense help to physicians, microbiologists, and pediatricians?both budding and established. Key Features Elucidation of emerging problems of global concern like HIV, tuberculosis, other sexually transmitted disease, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, chikungunya, avian influenza. Emphasizes on recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of various infectious diseases and provide students with the requisite skills to conduct, evaluate, and understand the field of infectious disease epidemiology. Focuses on new problem of common infectious diseases like transplant rabies, bat transmitted rabies, O139 serotype cholera, dengue shock syndrome etc. General section covers status of communicable diseases, newer vaccines, bio terrorism, hospital acquired infection, transfusion and travel related infection. Remerging infectious diseases like yaws, plague and trench fever are described in detail. Target Audience Physicians, Microbiologists, and Pediatricians Printed Pages: 234.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Sep 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 235x148x mm. Neuware - The contributions by epidemic modeling experts describe how mathematical models and statistical forecasting are created to capture the most important aspects of an emerging epidemic.Readers will discover a broad range of approaches to address questions, such as Can we control Ebola via ring vaccination strategies How quickly should we detect Ebola cases to ensure epidemic control What is the likelihood that an Ebola epidemic in West Africa leads to secondary outbreaks in other parts of the world When does it matter to incorporate the role of disease-induced mortality on epidemic models What is the role of behavior changes on Ebola dynamics How can we better understand the control of cholera or Ebola using optimal control theory How should a population be structured in order to mimic the transmission dynamics of diseases such as chlamydia, Ebola, or cholera How can we objectively determine the end of an epidemic How can we use metapopulation models to understand the role of movement restrictions and migration patterns on the spread of infectious diseases How can we capture the impact of household transmission using compartmental epidemic models How could behavior-dependent vaccination affect the dynamical outcomes of epidemic models The derivation and analysis of the mathematical models addressing these questions provides a wide-ranging overview of the new approaches being created to better forecast and mitigate emerging epidemics. This book will be of interest to researchers in the field of mathematical epidemiology, as well as public health workers. 356 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783319404110
