A brief overview of the basic science and clinical aspects of immunology. The basic science section is a clear presentation of innate and adaptive immunity, immune cells, antibodies and antigens, and other components of the immune system and their interactions. The clinical section clarifies hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, common diagnostic tests, vaccination, transplantation, and tumor immunology.

Provides a conceptual overview of pathophysiology and mechanisms of disease, designed to ease the transition from the basic sciences to the clinical years. This book will be a phenomenal learning tool for students in the second and third years of medical school and during USMLE Step 1 preparation, but will also be very helpful to nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professonals seeking to learn or review the physiological mechanisms of diseases, their diagnosis, and their management. The accompanied CD, Differential Diagnosis, allows one to select a symptom, sign, or lab finding and see all of the many diseases that could cause it, classified by pathophysiological mechanism. By teaching basic medical science and clinical reasoning hand-in-hand in a simple, light, and highly accessible writing style, this book provides an integrated and easy-to-understand approach to learning the science of medicine.

The book blendes the essentials of basic pharmacology and clinical pharmacology so that the transition from classroom to hospital is less abrupt. Students report that the book is most effective when lecture notes are written directly on the tables and margins, providing a single, concise guide for finals and the National Boards.

A brief, to-the-point presentation of the most important points in clinical physiology. Enables the reader to see cardio-pulmonary-renal physiology as well as immunologyand other areas as a clear conceptual whole.
|Author||: Aiman Zaher|
An up-to-date, clear, clinically oriented, and enjoyable review for all students of pathology and pathophysiology. Contains numerous humorous figures, mnemonics, and useful tables along with clinicopathologic correlation, molecular and genetic bases of disease, and high-yield knowledge for medical exams (e.g. USMLE Step 1 and others). An accompanying CD compares pathology with normal histology through many color images, with links to the Internet for additional images and information.

Microbiology For Dummies (9781119544425) was previously published as Microbiology For Dummies (9781118871188). While this version features a new Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the prior release and should not be considered a new or updated product. Microbiology is the study of life itself, down to the smallest particle Microbiology is a fascinating field that explores life down to the tiniest level. Did you know that your body contains more bacteria cells than human cells? It's true. Microbes are essential to our everyday lives, from the food we eat to the very internal systems that keep us alive. These microbes include bacteria, algae, fungi, viruses, and nematodes. Without microbes, life on Earth would not survive. It's amazing to think that all life is so dependent on these microscopic creatures, but their impact on our future is even more astonishing. Microbes are the tools that allow us to engineer hardier crops, create better medicines, and fuel our technology in sustainable ways. Microbes may just help us save the world. Microbiology For Dummies is your guide to understanding the fundamentals of this enormously-encompassing field. Whether your career plans include microbiology or another science or health specialty, you need to understand life at the cellular level before you can understand anything on the macro scale. Explore the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells Understand the basics of cell function and metabolism Discover the differences between pathogenic and symbiotic relationships Study the mechanisms that keep different organisms active and alive You need to know how cells work, how they get nutrients, and how they die. You need to know the effects different microbes have on different systems, and how certain microbes are integral to ecosystem health. Microbes are literally the foundation of all life, and they are everywhere. Microbiology For Dummies will help you understand them, appreciate them, and use them.

Authored by the lead author of the bestselling Medical Microbiology and written in the same tradition, Basic Medical Microbiology was designed as a straight-forward, practical introduction to this difficult topic. It provides students with a firm foundation in the principles and applications of microbiology, serving as an effective prep tool for examinations and the transition into clinical application. Carefully curated contents focus on the most commonly observed and tested organisms and diseases. Differential diagnosis, organism classification overview, and a list of antimicrobials used to treat infections are provided in the introductory chapter of each organism section, reinforcing the clinical application and relevance. Organized by organism; focuses on the association between an organism and disease. Concise tables and high-quality illustrations offer visual guidance and an easy review of key material. Clinical cases reinforce the clinical significance of each organism. Includes multiple-choice questions to aid in self-assessment and examination preparation.
