ASM Press; 2nd edition
The second edition of the best-selling textbook Oral Microbiology and Immunology (PDF) gives a thorough and in-depth understanding of the oral ecosystem and its function in human health and disease. This understanding is presented by an international panel of editors. Oral Microbiology and Immunology, 2nd Edition provides comprehensive information on the molecular biology, virulence, ecology, and immunogenicity of oral bacteria, fungi, and viruses, as well as investigates their interfaces with host cells and secretions. This text was written specifically for dental practitioners, dental students, and healthcare professionals.
This brand new second edition covers the technological and conceptual advancements that have expanded our understanding of the etiology of oral diseases, as well as the nature of pathogenic mechanisms and the host response. These advancements include the following topics:
- The sequencing of the genome of a bacterial community or an individual bacterium.
- Knockout mice lack particular immune system components that are important for both the innate and adaptive immune responses.
- Imaging tools in three dimensions and at a high resolution of communities forming in biofilms as well as the close interactions between microorganisms and the cells of their hosts.
