30th Anniversary Edition of Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases is More Relevant Than Ever
Date:9/24/2009

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, September 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Highly Respected Text Addresses New Strains of the Swine (H1N1) and Avian Influenza Viruses.

Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, proudly announces the release of Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases, 7th Edition. Marking 30 years since its initial publication, it remains the most respected reference source of its kind, and maintains its relevance in the face of the emergence of newly recognized infectious diseases, including new strains of the swine (H1N1) and avian influenza viruses.

Edited by renowned experts Gerald L. Mandell, MD, MACP; John E. Bennett, MD, MACP; and Raphael Dolin, MD, Mandell, Douglas and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases provides comprehensive, global guidance on diagnosing and treating the full spectrum of infectious diseases. Contributions from hundreds of the world's most noted authorities provide fresh perspectives and expanded global insights.

Since the first edition was published in 1979, much has changed. "Given that Infectious Diseases is an amazingly dynamic specialty, when you compare the 7th edition to the very first edition, there are many more chapters. When you compare the 7th edition with the 6th edition, there are extensive revisions even to the chapters that have appeared previously," says Gerald Mandell, MD, the founding editor. "For example, most chapters were written in 2009, and are thus very current. There are a number of chapters related to infection control in hospitals, antibiotic resistance in travel medicine, infections in immunocompromised patients, infections from exotic pets, and a lot of new information about HIV/AIDS. There is also markedly expanded coverage of bio-terrorism agents, which infectious disease specialists need to know about."

Users of this 7th edition can access the full text online with regular updates, downloadable image library, drug database, and more at Elsevier's Expert Consult (http://www.expertconsultbook.com/) web site. "The knowledge and experience of the world's authorities, with careful review by the three editors, make the information a lot more valuable than just searching for facts online," says Dr. Mandell.
