From the Publisher:

Praise for Previous Editions "Clear, well-written text including tables, and impressive schematic drawings" (Experimental Pathology)

"It remains excellent value for money and will I am sure long continue to be a standard text." (Journal of Medical Microbiology)

"...Professor Mims offers the student a chance to acquire a sound appreciation of the infectious process." (British Medical Journal)

"A splendidly imaginative book which will become a trusty companion for many of us." (The Lancet)

"...An excellent book which should be read by teachers, students and research workers." (New Scientist)

From the Back Cover:

Just as the virologist has to study not only the virus itself but also the cell and its response to infection, so the student of infectious disease must understand the body's response to infection as well as the properties of the invading microbe. An understanding of pathogenesis is vital in our continuing battle against infectious diseases and for the development of new treatment and preventative strategies.
The new revised edition of this unique and highly readable work describes the mechanisms by which invading microbes cause disease and how the body reacts in defence. Principles are clearly explained, using examples from bacterial, parasitic, viral and fungal infections.
New Features Include:
* Microbial gene sequencing
* Role of bacterial virulence factors in vivo
* Latest data on tuberculosis - the number one infectious disease worldwide
* Role of pathogenic cytokines
* Significance of toxins
* An update on vaccines, prions, immune evasion, microbial ligands and receptors
Now regarded as a classic, Mims' Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease continues to be essential reading for all microbiology, infectious disease, immunology and pathology students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, medical students and those new to the field.
