Nhan đề: The statistical evaluation of medical tests for classification and prediction / Margaret Sullivan Pepe Số phân loại : 616.075 M109; Đặc điểm vật lý: xvi, 302 tr. : ill. ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : This book describes statistical concepts and techniques for evaluating medical diagnostic tests and biomarkers for detecting disease. More generally, the techniques pertain to the statistical classification problem for predicting a dichotomous outcome. Measures for quantifying test accuracy are described including sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, diagnostic likelihood ratios and the Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve that is commonly used for continuous and ordinal valued tests. Statistical procedures are presented for estimating and comparing them. Regression frameworks for assessing factors that influence test accuracy and for comparing tests while adjusting for such factors are presented. This book presents many worked examples of real data and should be of interest to practicing statisticians or quantitative researchers involved in the development of tests for classification or prediction in medicine .

Nhan đề: In defense of self : how the immune system really works / William R. Clark Số phân loại : 616.079 W716; Đặc điểm vật lý: vi. 265Tr : minh họa ; 22 cm
*Tóm tắt : William Clark's In Defense of Self offers a refreshingly accessible tour of the immune system, putting in layman's terms essential information that has been for too long the exclusive province of trained specialists. Clark explains how the immune system works by using powerful genetic, chemical, and cellular weapons to protect us from the vast majority of disease-causing microbes-bacteria, viruses, molds, and parasites. Only those microbes our bodies need to help us digest food and process vitamins are admitted .

Nhan đề: Infection and immunity / John H.L. Playfair, Gregory J. Bancroft Số phân loại : 616.079 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: xvi, 312 tr. : ill. ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Together with Greg Bancroft, an expert in infectious diseases, Playfair describes the main causes of infection that our bodies have to battle against - from bacteria to viruses - and explains that intricate and fascinating way that our bodies respond to infection - from detection of these potentially dangerous organisms, to their ultimate elimination. With examples of infectious diseases from across the world, and with vastly expanded coverage compared to the first edition, Infection and Immunity 2E will be perfect for biomedical science, bioscience and microbiology students who need to understand what causes infection, and how our immune systems respond .

Nhan đề: Living with germs : in sickness and in health / John Playfair Số phân loại : 616.079 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: viii, 264 p. : ill. ; 18 cm
*Tóm tắt : The word germ is defined as 'a microbe that causes disease'. The vast majority of microbes do not infect us at all: it is pathogens that make us ill. These include bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, worms, and prions. Living with Germs not only looks at all of these in detail, but also at the defense mechanisms by which we come to terms with pathogens, whether by eliminating them, stopping them from eliminating us, or simply learning to live with them. This is the first book to look at the subject of immunology in a relevant and approachable style. Using anecdotal and autobiographical material, John Playfair has produced a lively, well-written, and up-to-date look at immunology. Timely and topical, this will appeal to all those who want to know the facts behind the 'germ' scare stories .

*Tóm tắt : The field of macrophage research has grown enormously since publication of the first edition of this book. The Macrophage 2e provides a unique comprehensive review of the current scientific knowledge of the multifaceted role of this important and intriguiging cell in health and disease. In 16 chapters by experts in the field it covers the basic biology and diverse functions of macrophages in specific diseases and the complex of interactions between macrophages and other cells. Ranging from their role in the defense against pathogens, their role as hosts for pathogens (including HIV), their complex roles in diseases such as arthritis and cancer, and their potential for use in novel gene therapy approaches to disease treatment, the book gives an up to the minute account of active macrophage research. The editors have intentionally included a broad rangeof topics that will appeal not only to immunologists and cell biologists but will also be of interest to those working in the specific disease areas covered .
