Book description

Viral infections of the central nervous system or neurotropic viruses are often lethal. These diseases range from polio and measles, to rabies, Varicella-zoster, Herpes, West Nile, Japanese encephalitis, and AIDS. Such infections have profound public health consequences, and the understanding of these diseases involves understanding the interaction between the nervous system and the immune system. This book shows each individual virus, discussing the diseases they cause and the mechanisms by which they cause and spread those diseases. Detection, treatment and prevention are also discussed. Included is coverage of novel and beneficial uses of neurotropic viruses for gene therapy and tumor lysis. Neurotropic Viral Infection has been written in a style suitable for a wide professional audience, and will appeal to anyone from graduate students and postdocs to clinicians and public health professionals.


‘The chapter authors and book editors have collaborated to produce a treatise that reads as if written by a single author. Obvious care has been taken throughout the chapters to make the text approachable and understandable by those with limited knowledge of virology and yet with the depth necessary to satisfy the most demanding of scholars.’

Michael Goldblatt - President and CEO, Functional Genetics, Inc.

'The authors did an amazing job walking that fine line between too much detail for non-specialists and not enough sophistication for the cognoscenti.'

Richard M. Ranshoff - Director, Neuroinflammation Research Center

'I can't imagine a better place to learn than this very well-thought out and comprehensive volume by leading authorities on this important subject.'

Stephen S. Morse - Founding Director, Center for Public Health Preparedness, NCDP

‘No other book is currently available that has the depth and range of the material presented….. This book will undoubtedly be an important resource to the scientific and medical community.’

Etty (Tika) Benveniste - Associate Director, Basic Science Research, Comprehensive Cancer Center, Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Alabama, Birmingham

‘Authoritative, accessible, and extensive … a must read for any one interested in neurotropic viruses and how to combat them.’

Alice S. Huang - Senior Faculty Associate in Biology, California Institute of Technology

'… comprehensive, well illustrated and very readable. … I highly recommend it to all those interested in viruses and neurological disease.'
