Overview

Ebola virus and Marburg virus are related viruses that cause hemorrhagic fevers-illnesses marked by severe bleeding, organ failure, and sometimes death. These viruses are native to Africa, where sporadic outbreaks have occurred for decades. Ebola and Marburg Viruses, Second Edition examines the nature and origins of these viruses, their transmission and treatment, and current vaccine research.

Deadly diseases affect everyone. Although not all cases are fatal, each disease causes a degree of harm and discomfort to those whom it afflicts and sometimes can have long-lasting consequences. Each book in the series Deadly Diseases and Epidemics takes the reader through all aspects of a disease-from its history and causes or method of infection to its treatment and prevention. The books provide a foundation for understanding the basics of microbiology, immunology, and epidemiology.
