Describes advances in biochemistry, microbiology, molecular genetics, and clinical science and identifies gaps in present knowledge. Encompasses bacterial, fungal, and protozoal pathogens and discusses recent discoveries that show the importance of iron uptake mechanisms to malignant and other rapidly proliferating cells. Considers the significance of recent developments to the design and use of new vaccines and to the therapeutic measures used in treating infections.
