Virology is currently one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing fields of clinical medicine. The third edition of this essential reference has been extensively revised and updated to incorporate the latest developments and relevant research. Covering novel viruses, pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, Clinical Virology informs scientists and health care professionals about all the medically relevant aspects of this rapidly evolving field.
This landmark volume is organized into two major sections. The first addresses infections and syndromes related to particular organ systems, as well as the fundamentals of modern medical virology. This section includes crucial information on immune responses and vaccinology, diagnostics, antivirals, and the nascent field of gene therapy. The second section provides agent-specific chapters that detail the virology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, and prevention and treatment of important viral pathogens. All of the chapters are written by internationally recognized experts.
