Tetanus is a very serious, potentially fatal disease that typically occurs in people who have not been vaccinated. Caused by Clostridium tetani, it generally enters the body through a deep wound in the skin, such as a puncture caused by stepping on a nail. While rare in the United States and other developed countries, tetanus kills approximately 300,000 people a year worldwide. "Tetanus" describes the characteristics of the disease, which includes powerful muscle contractions and a form of paralysis called lockjaw, and details its prevention and treatment. The historical background of the disease and the future trends of treatment and prevention are also covered. A better understanding of tetanus can help everyone take steps to make this disease even less common.Chapters include: What Is Tetanus? Tetanus in History, How Is Tetanus Treated? How Is Tetanus Prevented? And, Future Prospects Regarding Tetanus.

First recorded in Europe in the late 1400s, syphilis quickly spread throughout the world. A disease that slowly kills its victims, syphilis allows them enough time to spread it to others. It was not until the 19th century that syphilis was realized to be a sexually transmitted disease. Because syphilis was poorly understood, it became the subject of many myths and misconceptions, and people who suffered from the disease were often stigmatized. "Syphilis, Second Edition" looks at the disease from historical and epidemiological perspectives, describing the discovery of the bacterium that causes syphilis as well as the medical advances that shed light on how the disease spread, how that spread could be prevented, and the development of effective treatments. This revised edition contains new photographs and illustrations as well as updated statistics of syphilis rates in the United States. The chapters include: The Disease Called Syphilis; History and Folklore of Syphilis; Syphilis: From Plague to STD; Treponema: The Syphilis Organism; Prevention and Treatment of Syphilis; Epidemiology of Syphilis; Syphilis in Contemporary Society; and a Case Study in Syphilis Research.

Myeloma (The Biology of Cancer)

Causes of Cancer (The Biology of Cancer)
Chelsea House Publications | 2008-02-28 | ISBN: 0791088243 | 119 pages | PDF | 2 MB
Myeloma is a form of cancer that rises from white blood cells called B lymphocytes. The disease usually causes malignant cells to grow within bone marrow. These cells interfere with marrow function as well as the immune system. Risk for myeloma has been linked to old age, being overweight, and environmental factors such as radiation exposure. Myeloma draws upon the most current medical research to explain the biology of this form of cancer, how it is diagnosed, and how it is treated.
