First published in 1963, Advances in Parasitology contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. Now edited by J.R. Baker (Royal School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, UK), R. Muller (International Institute of Parasitology, UK) and D. Rollinson (The Natural History Museum, UK), supported by an international Editorial Board, Advances in Parasitology includes medical studies on parasites of major influence, such as typanosomiasis and scabies, and reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which shape current thinking and applications. Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes on such topics as Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems in Epidemiology. In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that Advances in Parasitology has an Impact Factor of 4.913, placing it 2nd in the highly competitive category of Parasitology. First in the ISI Parasitology List in 2000ISI Impact Factor of 6.724 in 2000Series features over 35 years of parasitology coverageAspects of human parasites in which surgical intervention may be importantElectron transfer complexes in Ascaris MitochondriaCestode prasites: application of in vivo and in vitro models for studies on the host-parasite relationship
Since its inception in 1945, this serial has provided critical and integrating articles written by research specialists who integrate industrial, analytical, and technological aspects of biochemistry, organic chemistry, and instrumentation methodology in the study of carbohydrates. The articles provide a definitive interpretation of the current status and future trends in carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry.
Rabies offers a complete account of one of the oldest known diseases threatening public health today. Unlike most research-oriented descriptions of rabies, this book provides a narrative about the disease and its etiologic agent, encompassing the historical background to recent developments. The emphasis on the basic biology and molecular virology of the disease is intended to convey an understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in the disease - essential information for diagnosis and prevention strategies. Current methods used in defining geographic origins and animal species of rabies viruses in wildlife are presented, along with diagnostic methods for identifying the strain of virus based on its genomic sequence and antigenic structure. The latest approved methods for controlling rabies in wildlife species are also covered. This account of rabies will interest clinicians, public health advisors, epidemiologists, research scientists, and anyone involved in diagnosing, treating, controlling, and preventing this disease.Key Features* A history of rabies from antiquity to the modern era* Basic biology and molecular virology* Epidemiological aspects* Pathogenesis and pathology of the disease* Clinical manifestations and diagnostic evaluation in humans and animals* Preventive measures in humans and animals
Recent trends toward specialization in veterinary medicine parallel similar trends in the practice of human medicine. W. Jean Dodds, the new editor of Advances in Veterinary Science and Comparative Medicine, has brought together recognized authorities to integrate the legal and ethical implications generated by the issue of specialization. Routine and specialized veterinary practices, including genetic screening, are now associated with clinical trials. This book establishes the links between specialization in the veterinary sciences and the factors that influence the use of animals in basic science and medicine.
Animal science is being transformed by advances in molecular genetics. This book covers this exciting transformation. Both the diagnosis and treatment of disease are discussed in seven chapters by a team of leading international authorities. From oncogenesis and hemophilia to retroviral virulence and genome mapping, this volume yields an understanding of fundamental mechanisms of action and insightful means of diagnosis and treatment. Practicing veterinarians and researchers in animal science will find this book useful.
