Sexuell übertragbaren Erkrankungen gehören zu den häufigsten übertragenen Infektionen, mit denen sich Gynäkologen und Geburtshelfer in ihrer Praxis konfrontiert sehen. Während die "klassischen Geschlechtskrankheiten" (Syphilis, Gonorrhoe, Ulcus molle und Lymphogranuloma venereum) aufgrund der geringen Inzidenz in unseren Breitengraden zwar eine wichtige, aber mittlerweile untergeordnete Rolle spielen, nimmt die Bedeutung von Hepatitis B, HIV-Infektion und AIDS, Herpes genitalis, Infektionen mit Chlamydia trachomatis oder HPV weiter zu. Viele dieser Infektionen bleiben primär ohne Symptome, können jedoch weiterreichende Konsequenzen wie ungewollte Kinderlosigkeit, Fehlgeburten oder sogar Krebserkrankungen haben.
Die einzelnen Infektionen werden systematisch und übersichtlich in eigenen Kapiteln aufbereitet. Zu finden sind alle wichtige Fakten und info zu Erreger, Inzidenz, Risikofaktoren, Epidemiologie, Klinik, Diagnostik, Komplikationen, Therapie sowie Prophylaxe und – wo correct – zur Bedeutung in der Geburtshilfe und Neonatologie.
Den schnellen Zugriff auf die gesuchte info gewährleisten viele übersichtliche Algorithmen und Tabellen für Diagnostik und Therapie unter Berücksichtigung der aktuellen nationalen und internationalen Leitlinien und Empfehlungen.

AIDS-associated viral oncology is an important healthcare challenge. because the id of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated received immune illness syndrome (AIDS), the function of viruses in human cancers has develop into acutely obvious over the last 20 years. the certainty and therapy of AIDS-associated cancers has develop into a huge quandary between healthcare agencies. Human cancers that have been as soon as infrequent within the inhabitants have now develop into universal in the HIV contaminated inhabitants.
Experts percentage their collective wisdom and consider the scientific and organic facets, together with viruses good confirmed of their roles, in addition to rising new viruses. This quantity should be a source for either participants of the medical and healthcare group and energetic researchers during this field.
"Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - linked received immune ailment syndrome (AIDS) areas members at elevated probability for virally mediated cancers. this article addresses the medical and organic points of this subject. unique investigators within the box current a accomplished evaluate with relevance to laboratory scientists and working towards clinicians."

A sequence of foreign symposia on viral hepatitis and liver affliction has been held triannially, and known as the "Olympics" of this study box. Our publication provides the result of the 8th of those "Olympiads" which for the 1st time, was once held in Asia (May 1993, Tokyo). because of the speedy growth in study on either simple and medical facets of viral hepatitis and liver illness, the cutting-edge during this box is consistently being up to date, and our booklet offers a large and in-depth survey of present paintings. the most important themes in our e-book comprise molecular biology of the 5 identified hepatitis viruses (HAV, HBV, HCV, HDV, and HEV), scientific implications of genetic editions of HBV and HCV, interferon remedy of HCV-related liver ailment, and around the world epidemiology and keep an eye on of viral hepatitis. New topics now not obvious in prior books, resembling genotypes of HCV, also are coated. increasing wisdom concerning the heterogeneity of the HCV genome has printed a superb number of genotypes in addition to their organization with host pathogenesis and their various responsiveness to interferon remedy. the 1st promising result of efforts to advance a hepatitis C vaccine also are provided. ultimately, in comparison with its predecessors, our publication comprises many extra papers from Asian international locations, the place the superiority of viral hepatitis and liver affliction is the top within the world.

The prebiotic proposal works at the foundation that many very likely health-promoting microorganisms are already found in people. Prebiotics are non-digestible nutrition materials that stimulate task in specific microorganisms, to enhance the future health of the person. Prebiotics should be integrated into many foodstuffs reminiscent of drinks, healthiness and activities beverages, toddler formulae, cereals, bread, savoury items and so on, and are receiving a lot advertisement interest.
Prebiotics: improvement and Application is the 1st e-book to consolidate examine during this rising zone of ‘functional nutrients’ learn. The publication takes a wide view method of prebiotics, from the conceptual level, definition, construction, evaluate of person nutrition items and their influence on microbial plants, and their strength relation to diseases.
The publication starts off with an creation to the prebiotic idea and its improvement, proceeds to contemplate the synthesis and manufacture of prebiotics and checking out for prebiotic results, and should then reflect on assorted sorts of prebiotics (e.g. fructans, galactans, lactulose etc). The e-book will then examine prebiotic intervention for bettering human wellbeing and fitness (acute and protracted issues) and animal overall healthiness. The e-book closes via contemplating the sectors for prebiotic meals, improvement and commercialisation concerns, and destiny advancements.
