9780123910592: Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Second Edition: Vaccines, Prevention, and Control

The last decade has seen a huge amount of change in the area of sexually transmitted infection control and prevention, including the development of high-profile vaccines for preventing the spread of cervical cancer-causing human papillomavirus (HPV), novel control methods for HIV and AIDS, and even the discussion of more widespread use of controversial abstinence-only sex education programs. Fully revised and updated to reflect the changes of the past ten years, Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Vaccines, Control and Prevention 2nd Edition brings researchers, clinical investigators, clinicians, and students the most up-to-date research, findings and thought on sexual infection prevention, control and therapy available and serves as an essential reference for anyone working in the field.

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of epidemiology, physiology and immunology, featuring general preventive strategies such as behavioural modification, barrier methods and topical microbicides
  • Presents individual chapters on Herpes Simplex Virus, Papillomavirus, Hepatitis B, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Bacterial Vaginosis
  • Includes pathogenesis, microbiology and clinical manifestations of each STD, along with current advances in vaccine development

Review:

Praise for the previous edition: "...presents an abundance of information that provides a clear understanding of sexually transmitted pathogens, factors that must be addressed in efforts to control the spread of disease, and the state of research on barrier methods of prevention and vaccines. ...it will be important reading for students, scientists, and public health practitioners, providing guidance on how best to use the tools we have today while clearly describing the tools needed to complete the armamentarium and the road toward their development."  --David L. Heymann, World Health Organization, in THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (April 2001)

"...the book comprehensively presents the important pathogens of sexually transmitted infections and the research aimed at developing vaccines against them. Past and recent vaccine strategies, current state of vaccine development and their future prospects are discussed in different chapters with great care and sincerity...This book is useful and important reading for those interested in infectious diseases and their prevention, control and vaccine development." --S. Das in THE JOURNAL OF MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY (April 2001)

"very useful and comprehensive information for clinicians, microbiologists and virologists interested in pathogenesis and prevention of STD." --ACTA VIROLOGICA
