"This update of a book last published in 2003 has been written to capture the advances in antiviral and antifungal chemotherapy and to incorporate a number of changing therapeutic approaches to selected infections.
The aim is to provide an international compendium of information on the properties of antimicrobial drugs and advice on their clinical application in the care of patients. This is a high quality book that will be useful to a wide variety of students, residents, and clinicians who do not work regularly in the area of infectious diseases, as well as a reference for those who want to specialize in infectious diseases" - Doody's review service Rating - 4 Stars!
"As an authoritative account of anti-infective agents and their use in therapy, this book is an indispensable asset in every medical microbiologist's library. Copies should also be found in every self-respecting library within departments dealing with infected patients on a day-to-day basis."
ACP News - Summer 2004 (review of 8th edition)
"Many advances in medicine such as cancer therapy, transplantation or use of prosthetic devices predispose patients to increased risk of infection...About half of the book focuses on treatment and is consolidated by coverage of the general principles and laboratory management of chmetherapy coupled with information on formulation of antibiotic policies and antibiotic stewardship...I would strongly recommend that microbiologists with an interest in infection and chemotherapy urge their institutional libraries to purchase this book."
