Votre note
This groundbreaking text examines the connection between virology and human disease by integrating basic virology with pathophysiological conditions. The book focuses on viruses that infect humans, domestic animals, and other vertebrates. In addition to describing the molecular structure and replication of these viruses, emphasis is placed on how viruses cause human diseases, from polio to HIV. The presentation of this information is greatly enhanced by four-color illustrations and clearly labeled figures and tables. This text provides an excellent overview for students, as well as researchers and clinicians interested in viruses as agents of human disease. Provides a concise overview of animal viruses, emphasizing those causing diseases in humans; Integrates discussion of molecular biology, epidemiology, and the history of human viruses; Presents information on treatment, prions, gene therapy, and vaccine development; Illustrated in color by an expert virologist; Includes world maps depicting the current distribution of existing and newly emerging viruses.

James H. Strauss is the Ethel Wilson Bowles and Robert Bowles Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology, where Ellen G. Strauss is also currently a senior research associate in biology. Both received their doctorate degrees in biochemistry from Caltech, returning in 1969 to begin a program in teaching and research in animal virology. Their research has focused on togaviruses and flaviviruses and has resulted in many original contributions to our understanding of these two families of viruses.
