Description - Handbook of Tuberculosis 3Vset by Stefan H. E. Kaufmann

Coinciding with the first TB therapies to enter clinical trials in 60 years, this is the most comprehensive account of the latest developments in clinical, therapeutic and basic research into the disease, presented by the most prolific of all researchers in the field. Divided into three clearly structured volumes, the first deals with molecular biology and biochemistry of the pathogen, including genetics and genomics, as well as drug design. The second volume covers cell biology, immunology and vaccine development, while the third is devoted to epidemiology and clinical approaches, including drug resistance, veterinary aspects and clinical field trials. With one new infection worldwide every second, this is an essential reference for bacteriologists, immunologists, pathologists and pathophysiologists, molecular and cell biologists, as well as those working in the pharmaceutical industry.
