Increased global travel has changed the way we think about disease distribution. Diseases once considered of localised interest can be disseminated more readily than ever due to the increased speed of international travel. This is your perfect visual guide to diagnosing these diseases. The Sixth Edition of this internationally acclaimed atlas is the most comprehensive ever, with extensively revised text and more than 1200 stunning images. See the latest on such infections as the H5N1 strain of avian flu and West Nile Virus. Catch up with expanded coverage of the continuing of HIV/AIDS and related infections. Find information quicker and more easily with a new consistent chapter organisation. Get even more comprehensive visual coverage with hundreds of new, full-colour images. Use all of the book's 1200+ images to illustrate your PowerPoint presentations with the enclosed bonus CD-ROM.

Grundriss der Parasitenkunde

Parasiten des Menschen und der Nutztiere

Parasiten bedrohen trotz jahrzehntelanger Anstrengungen nach wie vor die Gesundheit und das Leben des Menschen und seiner Haus-, Nutz- und Heimtiere. So sind fundierte Kenntnisse der parasitären Erkrankungen angesichts des zunehmenden weltweiten Reiseverkehrs sowohl für Reisende als auch für Humanmediziner unerläßlich. Zudem haben Parasiten als opportunistische Erreger bei AIDS-Patienten eine vorrangige Bedeutung erlangt, sind sie doch meist die eigentliche Todesursache. Aber auch Tiermediziner werden ständig mit Parasiten konfrontiert - sei es bei der Produktion von Lebensmitteln oder bei der Behandlung von Haustieren. Konzept dieses nun in sechster Auflage erschienenen Kurzlehrbuchs und Nachschlagewerks für Biologen, Tier- und Humanmediziner ist es, die Entwicklungszyklen der wichtigsten Tier- und Humanparasiten vergleichend darzustellen sowie ihre Übertragungswege und Überlebensstrategien im Wirt aufzuzeigen. Dabei können prophylaktische Maßnahmen z.T. größere Bedeutung erlangen als die Chemotherapie, die heute oft recht problematisch ist. Zudem werden die Morphologie und die biologischen Daten der wichtigsten Parasiten in für Studenten erlernbarer Weise aufbereitet und in über 700 Abbildungen und 20 Tabellen dargestellt.

Excerpt from Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology, Vol. 5: April 20, 1911, to February 26, 1912 The characteristic attitude of Phlebotomus is portrayed on Plates VI and VII. When at rest the wings slightly diverge and are elevated at a considerable angle above the thorax and abdomen. On the least disturbance the insects make short rapid flights, almost invariably to the right or left, reminding one of the rapid movements of a flea rather than those of a winged insect. Occasionally, however, they will take long - continued flights, when the course is more or less direct and distinctly midge-like. Their movements on the w1ng can be followed with little difficulty in daylight, but by artificial light it'is almost impossible to do so for more than a few seconds at a time. Both sexes live but a short time in captivity, unless they are fed upon human blood. Without this they will subsist on wet blotting - paper or other damp materials, such as soil, fresh leaves, etc. Under such conditions many examples survived for periods varying from three to nine days though the majority died on the third and fourth days, even although the females, in many instances, had taken a meal of blood a few hours before they were captured.

1918 - Die Welt im Fieber

Wie die Spanische Grippe die Gesellschaft veränderte

Der Erste Weltkrieg geht zu Ende, und eine weitere Katastrophe fordert viele Millionen Tote: die Spanische Grippe. Binnen weniger Wochen erkrankt ein Drittel der Weltbevölkerung. Trotzdem sind die Auswirkungen auf Gesellschaft, Politik und Kultur weitgehend unbekannt. Ob in Europa, Asien oder Afrika, an vielen Orten brachte die Grippe die Machtverhältnisse ins Wanken, womöglich beeinflusste sie die Verhandlung des Versailler Vertrags und verursachte Modernisierungsbewegungen. Anhand von Schicksalen auf der ganzen Welt öffnet Laura Spinney das Panorama dieser Epoche. Sie füllt eine klaffende Lücke in der Geschichtsschreibung und erlaubt einen völlig neuen Blick auf das Schicksalsjahr 1918.

Advances in Parasitology is a series of up-to-date reviews of all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. It includes medical studies on parasites of major influence, such as typanosomiasis and scabies, and more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which shape current thinking and applications.

This book addresses the major neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) – based on their prevalence and the years of healthy life lost to disability – in Latin American and Caribbean countries. These include Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, hookworm infection, and other soil-transmitted helminth infections, followed by dengue, schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, leprosy, cysticercosis, bartonellosis, Plasmodium vivax malaria, and onchocerciasis. Topics like disease burden, major manifestations and approaches to the control and elimination of NTDs in Latin America and the Caribbean are discussed in detail. As such, the book will be of general interest to basic researchers and clinicians engaged in infectious disease, tropical medicine, and parasitology, and a must-have for scientists specialized in the characteristics of this region of the world.​
