Bacteria are single cell microbes, which have the capability to survive without any support, both inside and outside the human body. Several bacteria can be found in the human body, such as the bacteria present in the gut, which are helpful in the digestion of food. However, some bacteria can result in infections and can affect the skin, throat, bowel, lungs and other body parts. Majority of the infections are mild but in certain cases infection can be severe. Urinary tract infection, strep throat, ear infection, and cough are some examples of bacterial infections. They are caused due to bacteria entering the human body through cuts and openings in the skin, which multiply in number, thereby causing a reaction. Antibiotics are effective in treating majority of the infections, which kill and stop the bacteria from multiplying. Prevention of bacterial infections can be done by covering mouth while coughing and sneezing, washing hands and not sharing utensils. This book includes some of the vital pieces of work being conducted across the world, on various topics related to bacterial infections. Also included herein is a detailed explanation of the epidemiology and control of these infections. This book will serve as a reference to a broad spectrum of readers.
