Hardcover. $25.00/DM 64,-/£14.75 ISBN 963 05 3657 9 LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES has fascinated the scientific world since its recognition in the early twenties as a pathogenic microbe infecting both human beings and animals. Recently Listeria and its extracts have proved to be valu­able tools in experimental immunology. Up-to-date knowledge in the field has been summarized in monographs, and within the past decade three inter­national symposia and a number of national meetings marked the permanent interest in this microorganism and its importance. The discovery of closely related though apparently non-pathogenic organisms of the Listeria family not only offered new taxonomic aspects, but also promoted a better understanding of the complex epidemiology and epizoology of this infection, the habitat of the causative organism of Listeria infection as well as the conditions which act as promoters in the occurrence of this disease. The author of the book has been engaged in the study of unknowns aspects of Listeria and its various actions. He now presents a summary view of this field based upon his own studies and experimental results. щ§ AKADÉMIAI KIADÓ Publishing House of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Budapest
