Description

The Mouse in Biomedical Research, Volume II: Diseases is a compilation of papers detailing infectious diseases of the mouse. This compilation deals with bacterial, mycotic, viral, protozoal, rickettsial, parasitic, non-neoplastic, and metabolic diseases of the mouse. Several papers describe the different diseases found in the digestive, respiratory, urogenital, integumentary, central nervous, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems of the mouse. This book lists the possible bacterial infections, as well as other miscellaneous infections such as those caused by aerosols, particles, and the air in the laboratory environment. This text also lists viruses that can affect the mouse such as the lactate dehydrogenase-elevating virus, mouse pox, polyomavirus, and the minute virus. This book describes the process of identification, diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment, control, prevention, and occurrence of these diseases. This text also reviews the diseases that can be transmitted from infected mice to humans, as well as through animal bites and allergic reactions. This book is suitable for researchers, clinical assistants, and scientists dealing with laboratory animals, particularly with mice as test animals. This book can also be helpful for veterinarians and doctors of infectious diseases transferred from animals.
