This book is composed of four parts: Epidemiology, Biology of Vibrio cholerae, Cholera Toxin, Antagonists and Treatment. The first two parts describe the history of cholera, its geographical distribution, mode of transmission, structural and functional activities of V. cholerae. The third part deals with the cholera toxin in a study of antagonist drugs used to treat cholera. The author's detailed discussion of the structural and functional aspects of the cholera toxin paves the way for future drug discovery to both prevent and cure cholera. In addition to W.H.O. and other regulatory treatment regimens, the fourth part adds to an overall understanding of current methods and potential areas for enhancement of outcomes for the welfare of individuals and society.
