Overview


Rapid advances in virology have increased the difficulty encountered by students and teachers in absorbing and imparting information. This comprehensive volume provides students with enough information, not just to pass examinations, but also to develop a foundation of knowledge for professional practice. Medical and dental practice requires an intelligent approach to the diagnosis and treatment of viral infections. The authors present a clearly written account of basic and clinical virology. The book contains detailed information on several key topics including: general properties and classification of viruses; how viruses cause diseases; viruses and cancer; childhood infections caused by paramyxoviruses; retroviruses and AIDS; the laboratory diagnosis of viral infections; and control of viral diseases by immunization. Richly illustrated with over 130 line drawings and photographs, this work provides a complete overview of this rapidly expanding field of biology for medical and dental undergraduates.

This book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.
