Melioidosis: A Century of
Observation and Research

This is the first comprehensive monograph on melioidosis since its description in 1912.  Authored by leaders in research and clinical aspects of melioidosis, this monograph is a compendium of multi-author reviews included within specific sections, with commentaries provided by Section Editors. The monograph includes sections on: history, epidemiology, microbiology, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis and detection, treatment, pathogenesis and development of protection, veterinary infections, environmental aspects, in addition to a section on other closely related Burkholderia species.

Authored by an international team of 67 contributors, this monograph provides an insight into historical milestones, the current state of knowledge and future directions in key areas. Each section highlights important aspects for clinicians and research scientists, microbiologists, epidemiologists and immunologists. Above all for those investigators commencing work in the growing field of melioidosis and Burkholderia pseudomallei research, it encapsulates the published literature of a century of discoveries.
