Written by world-renowned experts, this book addresses immunological and molecular methodologies of diagnosis as well as clinical aspects of diseases. It book discusses DNA and RNA amplification methods, explains ELISA approaches, and introduces rapid diagnosis techniques, biosensors, and flow cytometry. The book examines bacterial and parasitic infections, including M. tuberculosis, Borrelia burgdorferi, Streptococcus pyogenes, chlamydia and schistosomes, and describe viral infections such as hantaviruses, hepatitis C., cytomegalovirus, herpes virus, and HIV. It also covers syndromes with infections origins, including prions, chronic fatigue syndrome, and superantigens, and much more.
