New and evolving infections of the 21st century by I. W Fong ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The past decade has been highlighted by numerous advances in research of medical scientific knowledge, medical technology and the biological and diagnostic techniques - but somewhat less dramatic changes or improvement in management of medical conditions. This volume in the Emerging Infectious Disease of the 21st century series, addresses some of the emerging issues and controversies in Infectious Diseases. The author has chosen these topics for review based on questions and contentions raised by medical residents, internists, emergency physicians, clinical infectious disease specialists and family physicians. This volume will provide guidance and answers to frequently asked questions in infectious diseases to the researcher, clinician, generalists, specialists and trainees in these areas; thus, facilitating improved patient care, prudent and cost effective management and investigation of these disorders. This volume reviews the research, diagnosis, and treatment of some common infections facing researchers, clinicians and family physicians such as sinusitis, otitis media and asymptomatic bacteriuria. Recent studies and surveys have shown that these conditions are often over diagnosed and treated unnecessarily with antibiotics. The approach and guidelines for diagnosis and management are reviewed in this volume. Other more complicated but less common conditions challenging internists, clinical infectious disease consultants and other specialists are also reviewed (i.e. meningitis, ventilator associated pneumonia, sepsis, hepatitis C, B etc.)

In the third program, Seattle performance artists create a mock lab in a museum to raise audience consciousness about fundamental ethical questions about genetic manipulation and the environment

Apocalypse delayed ( Visual )

These 2 programmes uncover the history of certain governments' manufacture of deadly biological agents for use against other countries or their own insurgents. In Apocalypse Delayed Dr. Ken Alibek, who defected to the West from the former Soviet Union after working on such agents, discusses the production processes and potential use of smallpox and anthrax organisms. He claims that Russia continues working on these organisms despite Boris Yeltsin's 1991 decree banning such research. In both Russia and the U.S. the danger exists that individuals with expertise in producing deadly organisms may be open to offers from other governments or from terrorist groups
Novel Therapeutic and Prophylactic Modalities to Protect U.S. Armed Forces Against Major Biological Threat Agents ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Research under current project has been carried out in three interconnected directions aimed to develop new therapeutic approaches against biological weapon threat agents, namely Bacillus anthracis and smallpox virus (using vaccinia virus model). We have successfully demonstrated new previously unexplored directions to improve anthrax antibiotic therapy by using a combination of antibiotic with apoptosis inhibitors and adenosine receptor agonists. New candidate virulence factors of B. anthracis have been suggested based on our bioinformatics analyses and experimental results. Evidence on toll-like receptor participation in both infections caused by B. anthracis and vaccinia virus has been obtained
