Scope Molecular Bacterial Pathogenesis is a specialty section within the field journal Frontiers in Cellular and infection Microbiology, publishing high quality research that expands our knowledge and understanding of pathogenic microbial factors and mechanisms that mediate disease progression in human, animal and plant hosts research may also involve in vitro models. Bacterial pathogens often have unique genes and gene regulation and utilize specifically evolved strategies to tip the balance of survival in their favour during infection of a host. While many common mechanisms of pathogenesis exist in these microorganisms, they also display an extraordinary degree of specificity in how they manipulate a host and cause disease. We strive to publish manuscripts that enhance our understanding of the bacterial side of this host-pathogen interface. All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Molecular Bacterial Pathogenesis, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section. Articles published in the section Molecular Bacterial Pathogenesis will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as " democratic tiering ". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Cellular and Infection Microbiology.

The book is divided into 2 parts: The second part elaborates on the details of these processes for specific pathogens, with particular focus on virulence factors and pathogenic mechanisms. Each chapter concludes with a detailed outline and provocative questions that should be excellent study aids for students. The discussion of emerging and reemerging pathogens chapter 1 contains a proposal for a classification system to describe such pathogens.

The proposed classification system consists of 4 categories: These account, respectively, for newly discovered diseases caused by newly discovered pathogens e. The foregoing Permission to reprint a book review printed in this section may be obtained only from the author of the review. Such insightful discussions make this an entertaining vehicle for acquisition of a broad perspective on bacterial pathogenesis.

The roles of pattern recognition, pathogen-associated molecular patterns, and toll-like receptors are mentioned only briefly, which is surprising, given their prominence in current studies of early defense against bacterial pathogens. Another prominent feature of part 1 is the focus on prevention, the appropriate and inappropriate uses of antibiotics, and the problem of emerging antibiotic resistance.

Part 2 consists of 20 chapters, each of which is devoted to a description of a specific bacterial pathogen. At first glance, the order of the chapters appears to be a bit random, but the authors quickly clarify that the pathogens are grouped according to their portals of entry into the human body i. Virtually all of the beststudied bacterial pathogens are described, with the possible exception of any members of the Rickettsiae tribe.

The chapters have a similar structure: The extent and depth of discussion varies greatly, depending on the current status of our knowledge of virulence mechanisms for individual pathogens. These chapters have many recurring themes, such as antibiotic resistance and prevention of infection.

At first glance, the order of the chapters appears to be a bit random, but the authors quickly clarify that the pathogens are grouped according to their portals of entry into the human body i. Virtually all of the best-studied bacterial pathogens are described, with the possible exception of any members of the Rickettsiae tribe. The chapters have a similar structure: each begins with a chart that lists key features of the organism, has a central focus on virulence factors, and concludes with a bibliography, a detailed summary outline, and study questions.

The extent and depth of discussion varies greatly, depending on the current status of our knowledge of virulence mechanisms for individual pathogens.

Bacterial Pathogenesis

These chapters have many recurring themes, such as antibiotic resistance and prevention of infection. In perusing these chapters, one is amazed by the diversity of mechanisms devised by the bacteria to escape host defenses and enter their desired niches inside the human body.

Equally striking, however, is how little is actually known regarding pathogenesis for most of the pathogens described here. Aside from a handful of very well studied organisms e. The intended audience for this book is not stated, although it is clearly laid out as a textbook and could be employed for advanced undergraduate microbiology majors or graduate students.

Basic concepts are often explained in a manner that assumes little prior background knowledge, although this is not always the case. For example, 2 component regulatory systems are mentioned in conjunction with a number of virulence mechanisms, but the general concept of this type of regulatory mechanism is never described.

As noted earlier, the tone and writing style employed by the authors is unusual for a textbook. Discussions of mechanisms that have been discarded in light of newly discovered evidence provide the reader with the true flavor of the nature of pathogenesis research.

Another unusual element present here that one rarely finds in a textbook is the frequent discussion of public policy. Two examples will suffice.
