About the Authors
  • Salmonella enterica encompasses a diverse range of bacteria that cause a spectrum of diseases in many hosts. Advancements in prevention and treatment of S. enterica infections have at times been hampered by compartmentalization of research efforts and lack of multidisciplinary approaches. This book attempts to cover a diverse range of topics related to the biology of S. enterica infections, including epidemiological and clinical aspects, molecular pathogenesis, immunity to disease and vaccines. S. enterica infections are important zoonoses and therefore material on infections of animals and public health issues have also been considered. Each chapter can be read independently, but the full contents of the book will provide the reader with up-to-date knowledge on all the key aspects of salmonellosis in humans and animals. It will therefore be of interest to graduate students and researchers, as well as to clinicians, whose research focuses on this important pathogen.

    • Provides an integrated view of clinical, molecular and immunological aspects of the biology of this organism
    • Contains up-to-date information, ranging from epidemiology to vaccination and written by leaders in the research field
    • Covers the biology of salmonellosis in humans but also in domestic animals, from which the bacteria can be transmitted to humans via the food chain, constituting a serious public health issue

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Whether your interests lie in human or animal infection, in the virulence factors that make Salmonella such a successful pathogen, or even in the ability of Salmonella to be used for the immunotherapy of cancer, this book should prove a useful addition to bookshelves in libraries and research labs.' Jay Hinton, Institute of Food Research
