Sherris Medical Microbiology (7th Edition) – eBook PDF
For over a quarter-of-a-century, no other textbook has explained the link between microbiology and human disease states better than Sherris Medical Microbiology, 7th Edition, (PDF). Through an engaging, vibrant approach, this classic gives readers a solid grasp of the significance of etiologic agents, epidemiology, the pathogenic processes, and the basis of therapy for infectious diseases.
Part I of Sherris Medical Microbiology opens with a non-technical chapter that describes the nature of infection and the infection agents. The following four chapters present more detail about the immune response to infection and the prevention, epidemiology, and diagnosis of infectious disease. Parts II through V builds the core of the text with chapters on the major viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases. Each of these sections begins with chapters on basic biology, pathogenesis, and antimicrobial agents. No other textbook explains the link between microbiology and human disease states like Sherris.
