This is the PDF eBook version for Diagnostics to Pathogenomics of Sexually Transmitted Infections by Sunit Kumar Singh
Table of Contents
Sexually transmitted infections (STI) are very common worldwide. More than 20 different STIs have been identified, and about 19 million men and women are infected each year in the United States alone. This book looks at the complete picture of common STIs– how they form, evolve, and transmit, as well as how they can be treated and managed with modern techniques, medicines, and tools.
Diagnostics to Pathogenomics of Sexually Transmitted Infections runs the spectrum of discussion ranging from introduction of causative pathogen, their pathogenesis to epidemiology, immunology, to anatomy and physiology of human genitalia and management strategies.
