about

A current review of basic research onRickettsialesbiology and pathogenesis in one comprehensive volume.

  • Details the scientific knowledge about how these obligate intracellular bacteria invade, survive and replicate inside eukaryotic cells.
  • Describes the spectrum of disease caused by an infection including protective and pathologic immune responses.
  • Describes the latest developments, including genomics and biomathematical modeling, and progress towards genetic tools and a vaccine.
  • Serves as a significant research book for scientists, physicians, medical students, public health professionals, epidemiologists, biocomputational scientists and government policy makers.
