This book offers unique coverage of all presently known amoeba-resistant microorganisms and their significance in the study of infectious diseases. It highlights the role of free-living amoebae as a widespread evolutionary crib for the development of virulence traits in resistant microbes, including the ability of intracellular bacteria to survive to other phagocytic cells such as human macrophages. The emphasis is on public health risks associated with the presence in drinking water of intra-amoebal bacteria as well as the ecology and pathogenic role of amoebae-resisting bacteria as new emerging human pathogens.
