About this book


In the Handbook of Bacterial Adhesion: Principles, Methods, and Applications, Yuehuei An, MD, and Richard Friedman, MD, assemble the first comprehensive treatment of bacterial adhesion, with major concentration on the powerful experimental methods for its study in biomaterials and host tissues. Written by acknowledged experts in the field, these detailed techniques facilitate the study of implant infections in a wide range of devices, including orthopedic prostheses, cardiovascular devices, cerebrospinal fluid shunts and extradural catheters, urological catheters and stents, oral and maxillofacial implants, and even contact lenses. Methods for the study of microbial adhesion to such tissues as respiratory and intestinal mucosa, the urinary tract, and teeth are also included, as are numerous diagrams, tables, line drawings, and photographs to illuminate and clarify the text.
Comprehensive and eminently practical, the Handbook of Bacterial Adhesion: Principles, Methods, and Applications offers biomedical scientists and bioengineering researchers an all-in-one experimental guide to today's best techniques for understanding the nature, mechanisms, and prevention of bacterial adhesion.
