About the book

Microbial infections have a large impact on our health; among these infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs) have a great share. The frequency of UTIs varies with gender, age, health state, and socioeconomic background. Furthermore, the causative agents of UTIs expand to include bacterial, fungal, protozoal, and viral infectious agents. Authored by clinicians and scientists particularly nominated for their expertise in the field, the Urinary tract infections book reviews the diverse causative agents of UTIs. This book intends to cover the epidemiology, transmission, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of bacterial, fungal, protozoal, and viral UTIs. Special consideration is drawn to the UTIs in specific groups of patients like pregnant women, children, hospitalized, immunocompromised, and AIDS patients. This book aims to provide consensus tips on the treatment and etiology of UTIs that aid clinicians and healthcare providers in cost-effective curing UTI patients. This book will intend to present well-designed clinical studies as well as basic research that will be appreciated by clinicians and researchers in urology and microbiology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
