Human Parvovirus B19 (Monographs in Virology, Vol. 20)

Human Parvovirus B19 (Monographs in Virology, Vol. 20) Lowest new price: $56.04
Lowest used price: $12.19
List price: $188.00

Parvovirus B19 is the only parvovirus that has been clearly linked to human disease. Since its discovery just over 20 years ago, our understanding of B19 at the molecular, cellular, epidemiological and clinical levels has developed rapidly: Today the link between B19 and erythema infectiosum, hydrops fetalis, chronic anemia and transient aplastic crisis is well established. This book provides the reader with comprehensive and detailed reviews of subjects important to understanding parvovirus B19, including - the structure and biochemistry of the virus - the clinical and epidemiological features of infection - the diagnosis of infection - the pathophysiology of disease - the host’s immune response - treatment and prevention of disease Its expert contributions make this publication an essential and timely resource for clinicians, epidemiologists and public health policymakers in their endeavor to optimize treatment and prevention. It will also be appreciated by laboratory researchers interested in the physical and biological properties of the virus and the pathogenesis of B19 disease.


Interpreting Epidemiologic Evidence: Strategies for Study Design and Analysis

Interpreting Epidemiologic Evidence: Strategies for Study Design and Analysis Lowest new price: $19.23
Lowest used price: $2.20
List price: $67.00
Author: David A. Savitz

Evaluating the strength or persuasiveness of epidemiologic evidence is inherently challenging, both for those new to the field and for experienced researchers. There are a myriad of potential biases to consider, but little guidance about how to asses the likely impact on study results. This book offers a strategy for assessing epidemiologic research findings, explicitly describing the goals and products of epidemiologic research in order to better evaluate it successes and limitations. The focus throughout is on practical tools for making optimal use of available data to assess whether hypothesized biases are operative and to anticipate concerns at the point of study design in order to ensure that needed information is generated. Specific tools for assessing the presence and impact of selection bias in both cohort and case-control studies, bias from non-response, confounding, exposure measurement error, disease measurement error, and random error are identified and evaluated. The potential value of each approach as well as its limitations are discussed, using examples from the published literature. Such information should help those who generate and interpret epidemiologic research to apply methodological principles more effectively to substantive issues, leading to a more accurate appraisal of the current evidence and greater clarity about research needs.

Quarantine!: East European Jewish Immigrants and the New York City Epidemics of 1892

Quarantine!: East European Jewish Immigrants and the New York City Epidemics of 1892 Lowest new price: $19.97
Lowest used price: $4.62
List price: $28.00
Author: Howard Markel
Brand: Brand: The Johns Hopkins University Press

In Quarantine! Howard Markel traces the course of the typhus and cholera epidemics that swept through New York City in 1892. The story is told from the point of view of those involved―the public health doctors who diagnosed and treated the victims, the newspaper reporters who covered the stories, the government officials who established and enforced policy, and, most importantly, the immigrants themselves. Drawing on rarely cited stories from the Yiddish American press, immigrant diaries and letters, and official accounts, Markel follows the immigrants on their journey from a squalid and precarious existence in Russia's Pale of Settlement, to their passage in steerage, to New York's Lower East Side, to the city's quarantine islands. At a time of renewed anti-immigrant sentiment and newly emerging infectious diseases, Quarantine! provides a historical context for considering some of the significant problems that face American society today.

Fundamentals of Biostatistics

Fundamentals of Biostatistics Lowest new price: $296.94
Lowest used price: $110.00
List price: $190.08
Author: Bernard A. Rosner
Brand: Brooks

Bernard Rosner's FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOSTATISTICS is a practical introduction to the methods, techniques, and computation of statistics with human subjects. It prepares students for their future courses and careers by introducing the statistical methods most often used in medical literature. Rosner minimizes the amount of mathematical formulation (algebra-based) while still giving complete explanations of all the important concepts. As in previous editions, a major strength of this book is that every new concept is developed systematically through completely worked out examples from current medical research problems.
