Jawetz, Melnick, & Adelberg's Medical Microbiology 24th ed
The goals for the twenty-fourth edition of Jawetz, Melnick, & Adelberg's Medical Microbiology have remained the same as those of the first edition published in September, 1954: “...to provide a brief, accurate, and up-to-date presentation of those aspects of medical microbiology that are of particular significance in the fields of clinical infections and chemotherapy.” The current edition reflects the remarkable advances that have been made since that time in our knowledge of microbes and the molecular mechanisms of microbial disease as well as in the development of modern laboratory and diagnostic technologies. The DNA sequences of many pathogenic microorganisms of humans are known. In this edition, and in future editions, there will be meaningful changes based on the understanding developed from the study of the sequences and the molecular mechanisms of disease. The twenty-fourth edition includes several completely revised chapters and an extensive upgrade to the current status of knowledge.
Karen C. Carroll, MD, Professor of Pathology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, has been added as an author of chapters previously authored by Dr. Brooks. Her background is internal medicine and infectious diseases as well as clinical microbiology. We think that her expertise will add significantly to the current and future editions and we welcome her participation.
