GB £159 or US $319 World renowned EBV experts provide a critical and comprehensive review of every aspect of this important virus. By integrating genetic, immunologic, and cell biologic approaches to elucidate pathogenesis, penetrating new insights into the molecular and cellular interaction between EBV and its human host have emerged. Topics covered include: Discovery, history and seroepidemiology, EBV and the immune response, EBV genetics, EBV infection and persistence, latency, lytic proteins and reactivation control, vaccine approaches, animal models, and the future of EBV studies. This is essential reading for all EBV virologists as well as clinical and research scientists working on oncogenic viruses. read more ...

GB £159 or US $319 Food scientists and nutritionists have accepted, relatively uncritically, the concepts underlying the use of probiotics and prebiotics in the promotion of health. Microbiologists and medical practitioners have viewed these products more sceptically. Much more scientific and medical validation of probiotic or prebiotic use is required. This will entail the use of sophisticated analytical methodologies. Knowledge of the gut microbiota has increased dramatically during the past decade thanks largely to the results obtained from the application of nucleic acid-based methodologies. Because of the availability of improved technologies, detailed studies of the two principal kinds of probiotic or prebiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, can be made. Emerging leaders have contributed chapters to this book that therefore represents a state of the art compendium of fundamental science related to early 21st century probiotic or prebiotic research. read more ...

GB £159 or US $319 Written by leaders in the field, this book represents a cutting edge summary of all the latest advances, providing the first coherent picture of the current status. Opening chapters tackle topics such as pathogen detection (molecular, biosensor), molecular typing, viable but non-culturable organisms, predictive modeling, and stress responses. The next section covers groups of organisms: enteric viruses, protozoan parasites, and mycotoxins. This is followed by chapters on specific bacteria: Yersinia enterocolitica, Vibrio spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter Infections, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Escherichia coli, Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium perfringens and Bacillus cereus. The final chapters provide a fascinating review of the ability of pathogens to contaminate a food supply and provide an overview of emerging foodborne pathogens. read more ...

GB £159 or US $319 Expert AIDS researchers critically review every aspect of this highly topical subject. Chapters deal with the management of HIV infections, strategies to protect and strengthen the host immune system at the cellular level, strategies required for the implementation of effective anti-HIV therapies in developing countries, the genetics of viral drug resistance, current drug-resistance testing technologies, the latest viral and cellular targets for anti-HIV chemotherapy, the development of iRNA based therapeutics and molecular based strategies that target latent virus reservoirs in infected individuals. Essential reading for scientists and clinicians working on AIDS, HIV, and other retroviruses as well as all health care professionals interested in expanding their current understanding of the subject. read more ...
