9780126730500: Viruses and Human Disease

This is the first text to examine the connection between virology and human disease. It is also the first book to integrate basic virology with pathophysiological conditions. By contrast, most virology textbooks focus on the molecular biology involved without adequate reference to physiology. Viruses and Human Disease is four-color throughout and contains clearly labeled figures and tables.

* Illustrated in color by an expert virologist;
* Includes world maps depicting the current distribution of existing and newly emerging viruses

From the Back Cover:

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.

About the Authors
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 biochemisty 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.
