Population Mobility and Infectious Disease Population Mobility and Infectious Disease moves beyond traditional behavioral and demographic theories of disease diffusion to focus on larger issues of social ecology and public health. With depth rarely seen in the international literature, it explores the complex and varied roles of mobile, transient, and displaced populations in the worldwide spread of airborne, waterborne, and sexually transmitted infections. The book argues that while biomedical events cause disease, social forces such as poverty and marginalization magnify them by giving them new opportunities to take hold.
Population mobility—either voluntary or forced—brings contact between populations with different disease prevalence rates; outbreaks in turn are compounded by inequalities in access to medical care. From Katrina to Darfur, and from influenza to AIDS, an expert panel of health and social scientists bring the socioeconomic context of epidemics into clear focus: Historical perspectives on migration, development, and [..

XXIV, p. XVIII, p. Behavioral Interventions for Prevention and Control of Sexually Transmitted Diseases Before AIDS, the role of behavioral interventions in preventing transmission of sexually transmitted diseases was acknowledged in text books and journals but rarely promoted effectively in public health practice. Informed by a comprehensive knowledge of behavioral theory, intervention methods, and affected populations, the authors of this important book examine the central role of behavioral interventions in combating STDs.

The book addresses the complexities and social contexts of human behaviors which spread STDs, the cultural barriers to STD education ranging from conservative mores to "stay out of my bedroom" libertarianism , and the sociopolitical nuances surrounding treatment. Over forty contributors offer a practical appraisal of what is being done now and what can be improved, such as: an overview of current behavioral and biomedical interventions for STD prevention and control, a discussion of what works for individuals, groups, and communities, up to date thinking about such traditional [..
Therefore, resources available on sexually-transmitted diseases tend to be from a medical perspective, and so there are few comprehensive resources available from a behavioral perspective The editors are leaders in the field and manage the leading research center in the world on this topic at the CDC.

Takashima, International University of Health and Welfare, Fukuoka, Japan Pediatric Neuropathology A Text-Atlas Neuropathology is the foundation for understanding developmental neuroscience, pediatric neurology, and neurosurgery, but until now a comprehensive volume covering all aspects of pediatric neuropathology was not available.
This atlas is thus a unique, comprehensive reference providing the fundamentals of developmental brain disorders of the nervous system that can affect fetuses, infants and young children, as well as the essentials of diagnosis in developmental brain pathology and neuroimaging.
With an emphasis on the characteristic morphology and a concise summary of clinical features, pathogenesis, and genetics, the generously illustrated atlas presents more than disorders, including the common diseases of the peripheral nervous system as well as genetically determined metabolic and storage diseases.
This compilation is a valuable resource for pathologists, pediatric neurologists and neurosurgeons, geneticists, neonatologists, radiologists, and pediatricians. Features Heavily illustrated guide which includes a total of more than disorders Each disease is explained with brief and succinct comments with 6 illustrations Contents 1 Normal development.

Many more scientific articles about bacterial fish pathogens have been published, describing such new pathogens as Pasteurella skyensis, and antimicrobial compounds for the control of disease have been replaced by alternative methods, such as the use of probiotics. This updated book analyses all the new information, including that on new pathogens and new developments on long established diseases, such as furunculosis and vibriosis.
Consideration is given to all of the bacterial taxa which have at some time been reported as fish pathogens, whether they are secondary invaders of already damaged tissue or serious, primary pathogens. PCOS is the single most common endrocrinologic abnormality that affects women.
It is a disease that affects women from adolescence to menopause. Patients with PCOS are seen by a variety of specialists, including: reproductive, medical and pediatric endocrinologists; general internists, and dermatologists. This book is an edited collection from diagnosis and epidemiology of PCOS to clinical evaluation. There are additional factors that complicate this disease, such as insulin levels and obesity. Women with PCOS are known to be at a high risk for type 2 diabetes.

The emphasis of this book is on the retrospective study of medical scenarios as seen from the engineering perspective. An in-depth study is required to ensure the accuracy of both medical and engineering data. From the analytical techniques, a prospective study would assist in predicting the outcome of post-trauma damage.
Generally, the book covers a wide spectrum of trauma case studies and could be used in medico-legal test cases. The medical opinion can be translated into the engineering analysis there by validating or invalidating the total medical decisions.

AIDS Osteopathy. XX, p. Pagano, University of Padova, Italy Eds. Invasive Bladder Cancer There are two main types of bladder cancer: superficial and invasive. The former is four times more prevalent than the latter. Superficial bladder cancers do not invade the muscle wall while invasive tumors do. Invasive bladder tumors have a propensity to metastasize and spread to other areas of the body and are more likely to be fatal than superficial tumors.
