S320: Book 7 - Treatment and control

So the final book and its a bit bigger than the last one. This one looks at various options for the control and treatment of infectious diseases. It starts off by looking at simple strategies for controlling disease. Then it moves onto chemical attacks - looking at things like selectivity of chemicals and the development of them. After that we are into vaccination and how to make successful vaccinations. The next chapter looks into public health issues and how disease can be controlled from that aspect.

Finally there is a case study on the rather gruesome guinea worm which is one of the targets to be eradicated.
Its a good wrapping up book - now there is just a double weighted TMA to do, and the exam to revise and research for.
