Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kari A Simonsen, MD (University of Nebraska Medical Center)
Description: The chapters in this volume in the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology series are based on lectures given at the 8th Infection and Immunity in Children course at Keble College, Oxford, U.K., in June 2010. The chapters provide a succinct overview of diverse topics in pediatric infectious diseases written by internationally recognized, invited experts.
Purpose: The book provides clinicians, scientists, and students with timely communications about notable topics in the field of pediatric infectious diseases. The chapters include discussions ranging from neonatal meningitis to Q fever, influenza pandemics to infection control, and each provides a broad overview focused on current knowledge, ongoing research, and clinical controversies.
Audience: It is most appropriate for clinicians and students of pediatrics and pediatric infectious diseases, as well as infection preventionists, microbiologists, and public health providers with an interest in this area. The editors and contributing authors are highly respected authorities in the field.
Features: This slim volume provides concise, specific topic overviews in each chapter, alerting readers to current issues, recent discoveries, and provocative questions. Chapters are organized by topic, based on lectures provided at the live course, and each is thoroughly referenced. The full color illustrations and photomicrographs also add interest and help emphasize important concepts.
Assessment: This is a useful collection of review articles on important topics in pediatric infectious diseases. It is not intended as a standalone textbook, but it provides concise communications that will enhance readers' knowledge of the subject. For students, physicians, and microbiologists, it provides an array of interesting, timely, and provocative reviews to supplement standard textbook material and encourage future research and innovation.
