Human Herpesvirus-6: Epidemiology, Molecular Biology and Clinical Pathology

Free sample

This publication on HHV-6 is the first and so far only one where a composite picture of the virus is presented. Comprehensive accounts of HHV-6 biology, molecular virology, epidemiology and their association with diseases, including the effects of antiviral drugs, are covered in chapters contributed by leading researchers on HHV-6. The book is an excellent source of reference on HHV-6 for basic researchers, diagnostic virologists, clinicians, medical students and medical librarians since it provides the most current state-of-the-art information on HHV-6.

Completely revised and updated, Human Herpesviruses HHV-6A, HHV-6B & HHV-7, Third Edition, delivers a contemporary and thorough review of HHV-6, beginning with foundational explorations of classification, molecular biology, and chromosomal integration of the virus, through to clinical details, including pathologic features of infection, and clinical effects on various organ systems. The work now includes coverage of HHV-7, a virus that remains underestimated in transplant reactivation, seizures, and encephalitis.

The book examines the role of HHV-6 in myriad diseases, including cognitive disorders following bone marrow transplant, mesial temporal lobe epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disease, encephalitis, Hodgkin's disease lymphoma (HHV-6B), and glioma (HHV-6A). Descriptions of current and novel molecular and serological diagnostic assays, along with detailed protocols, are included to aid researchers and clinicians in discriminating potential false positives originating from chromosomally integrated HHV-6, and in differentiating between active and latent infection.

Human Herpesviruses HHV-6A, HHV-6B & HHV-7, Third Edition is a valuable reference for both clinical and basic scientists, including epidemiologists, virologists, practicing clinicians, infectious disease specialists, pathologists, and all scientists entering the field of herpes virus research. The work is a practical and thorough resource for a foundational understanding of HHV-6 and HHV-7, while providing a cutting-edge translational and clinical reference to those looking to understand and diagnose associated viral diseases.

Delivers the latest molecular diagnostic tests, the present-day gold standard for monitoring HHV-6Provides expert analysis of T-cell immune response against HHV-6Presents tools for differential diagnosis in HHV-6 viral infectionsIncludes new information on the previously-largely-unknown biological consequences of ciHHV-6Offers coverage of new discoveries relating to HHV-7
