Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible.The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Medical Microbiology covers a range of key laboratory techniques used in the diagnosis of important human diseases caused by microorganisms. From sample collection, through to analysis and laboratory investigation, the text covers a wide range of procedures and highlights how and why results are generated. The second edition has been expanded to cover a wider range of topics, and includes new chapters on parasitology, pathogenesis, and molecular diagnostics and investigation.New to this editionNew introductory chapter covers the basic principles and features of microorganisms, which underpin the rest of the book.New chapters on parasitology and pathogenesis make the text an even more comprehensive resource for students.New chapter on molecular diagnostics and investigation reflects the increasing use of molecular technologies to detect pathogens in clinical microbiology.

Haematology provides a broad-ranging overview of the study of blood, the dynamic fluid that interfaces with all organs and tissues to mediate essential transport and regulatory functions. Written with the needs of the biomedical scientist centre-stage, it provides a firm grounding in the physiology of blood, and the key pathophysiological states that can arise. It demonstrates throughout how an understanding of the physiologyunderpins the key investigations carried out by a biomedical scientist to forge a clear link between science and practice.

Medical microbiology concerns the nature, distribution and activities of microbes and how they impact on health and wellbeing, most particularly as agents of infection. Infections remain a major global cause of mortality and in most hospitals around one in ten of those admitted will suffer from an infection acquired during their stay. The evolution of microbes presents a massive challenge to modern medicine and public health. The constant changes in viruses such as influenza, HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and SARS demand vigilance and insight into the underlying process. Building on the huge success of previous editions, Medical Microbiology 18/e will inform and inspire a new generation of readers. Now fully revised and updated, initial sections cover the basic biology of microbes, infection and immunity and are followed by a systematic review of infective agents, their associated diseases and their control. A final integrating section addresses the essential principles of diagnosis, treatment and management. An unrivalled collection of international contributors continues to ensure the relevance of the book worldwide and complementary access to the complete online version on Student Consult further enhances the learning experience. Medical Microbiology is explicitly geared to clinical practice and is an ideal textbook for medical and biomedical students and specialist trainees. It will also prove invaluable to medical laboratory scientists and all other busy professionals who require a clear, current and most trusted guide to this fascinating field.

Our immune system is a complex network of cells continually battling against a barrage of attacks from our environment, quite literally to save our lives. But what protects us from the potentially life-threatening microorganisms that surround us every day? Infection and Immunity describes the main causes of infection that our bodies have to battle against - from bacteria to viruses, fungi to protozoa - and explains the intricate andfascinating ways in which we respond, from detection of potentially dangerous organisms to their ultimate elimination. Presenting a fully-rounded, well-balanced overview of the field,the book also explains how diseases spread, and what measures we can take to control this spread - from vaccination to increasing awareness through public health initiatives.
