Organised by body-system, this highly illustrated volume covers the normal histological appearance of tissues in a wide range of animals, both domestic and exotic species, with relevant clinical correlates emphasising the need to appreciate the normal in order to recognise the abnormal.
It explains and integrates all aspects of ultrastructural pathology in human and animal tissue occurring from natural and experimental disease. This new edition has been improved with a more comparative focus and expanded coverage on infectious diseases and tumors.
Provides in depth information about common laboratory testing procedures that are used to evaluate animals, including what the assays measure and what the results tell veterinarians about the physiologic and pathophysiologic processes that may be occurring in their patients.
Hundreds of high-quality images illustrate the essential features of pathology and make it easy to make definitive comparisons to your own lab samples, while concise captions enable you to quickly and easily understand key points.
It builds on prior knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry to explain the pathological changes that occur in sick animals. The book provides an understanding of the effects of various disease processes, and relates these to clinical presentation, diagnosis and prognosis, and treatment rationales.
The basic concepts of pathology are integrated into clinical medicine. Chapters on cellular degeneration and necrosis, inflammation, thrombosis, hemodynamic disorders, and neoplasia have been reconstructed to include the latest in new scientific information and color illustrations of gross pathology.
Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team is a concise, reliable resource for consistently achieving high-quality test results in the veterinary practice. An essential bench-side reference for in-house laboratories, the book includes a DVD with interactive cases to build skills in reading and interpreting digital slides.
Focuses on the most current knowledge of cell, tissue and organ structure and function. All information has been fully revised and updated by the authors, both experts in their fields. Highlights include an CD-ROM histology atlas, including more than 800 high-quality color images, each accompanied by identifying labels and descriptive legends.
The book covers all of the basics of immunology, including chapters on: the origin and function of hemopoietic and lymphopoietic cells; non-specific immunity; antigens; complement; cell receptors and cytokines associated with the immune response; specific immune responses; responses to bacteria, fungi, protozoa, helminths, and tumors.
