"Emerging Infectious Diseases" provides readers with core information about the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, prevention, and treatment of specific EIDs. The study of these emerging infectious diseases includes not only new diseases themselves, but their spread to new geographic areas, microbial resistance, the impact of EID's on global health, issues of surveillance, and how societal and demographic changes contribute to the appearance of EIDs. The book emphasizes issues of most relevance to our world today - including the most important and newest EIDs like avian influenza and SARS, special issues like bioterrorism, related behavioral and cultural factors, and infectious etiologies of chronic diseases - and includes appendices with charts of many "new" infectious diseases, a glossary, and index. Contributed by some of the world's leading experts on these diseases, who bolster their writings with the most recent scientific evidence, this new edition provides state-of-the-art information for a wide range of health professionals.
