Book Description

The recent appearance of multi-drug resistant phenotypes has complicated the efforts to completely eradicate diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria, thus underscoring the need for new and innovative scientific approach to the problem. Multi-Drug Resistance in Emerging and Re-Emerging Diseases highlights the state-of-the-art in microbial/parasite control and containment, and discusses ways and means of avoiding development of drug resistance. It explores strategies to combat the nightmare of microbial aggression and resistance and to overcome multiple drug resistance when it emerges in microbial organisms or in cancer cells exposed to chemotherapy.

Written by a panel of experts, the book gives you the benefits of both field and clinical experience as well as an in-depth know-how of the pathology of these drug resistant diseases. Topics include malaria, tuberculosis, cholera, leprosy, diarrhoeal diseases, nosocomial diseases, plague, and drug resistance and cancer. Multi-Drug Resistance in Emerging and Re-Emerging Diseases provides a foundation for new initiatives and more collaborative efforts in the fight against resistance to antibiotics by micro-organisms.
