Description: This is the ninth volume in a series based on the presentations delivered at the "Infection and Immunity in Children" course held annually at St Catherine's College, Oxford, UK.
Purpose: The books in this series are designed to deliver succinct and timely updates on important pediatric infectious disease and immunology topics. The diverse chapters provide a broad overview of current knowledge, ongoing research, and knowledge gaps.
Audience: Intended for trainees and practitioners in the field of pediatric infectious diseases and immunology, the book is appropriate for both clinicians and researchers. The chapter authors and editors are nationally and internationally renowned experts in the field.
Features: Chapters are organized based on the individual lectures given at the course, and each is thoroughly referenced. Full-color illustrations and many useful tables and figures add interest and emphasize important concepts throughout the book. Notable topics covered in this volume include Clostridium difficile, non-typhoidal salmonella, chlamydia, and management of multidrug resistant bacterial infections in children.
Assessment: This is a useful collection of review articles that provides timely communications on hot topics, as intended. For students, physicians, and microbiologists, it will supplement textbooks and stimulate discussions and research in the fields of immunology and pediatric infectious diseases.
