New edition available for essential virology reference

ASM Press announces the latest edition of an essential reference volume in one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing fields of clinical medicine. Covering novel viruses, pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, Clinical Virology informs scientists and health care professionals about all the medically relevant aspects of this rapidly evolving field.

"Virology is currently one of the most dynamic areas of clinical medicine. Challenges related to novel viruses, changing epidemiologic patterns, new syndromes, unmet vaccine needs, antiviral drug resistance, and threats of bioterrorism are balanced against improved insights into viral pathogenesis, better diagnostic tools, novel immunization strategies, and an expanding array of antiviral agents. The demands on clinicians, public health workers, and laboratorians will continue to increase as will the opportunities for effective intervention. This text, now in its third edition, is designed to inform scientists and health care professionals about the medically relevant aspects of this rapidly evolving field," says Douglas Richman of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, who coedited the book with Richard Whitley of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine and Frederick Hayden of the University of Virginia Health System.

Clinical Virology is divided into two major sections. The first addresses infections and syndromes related to particular organ systems, as well as the fundamentals of modern medical virology, including immune responses and vaccinology, diagnostics, antivirals, and the nascent field of gene therapy. The second provides agent-specific chapters that detail the virology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis, and prevention and treatment of important viral pathogens.

The senior authors for individual chapters were chosen because of their internationally recognized expertise and active involvement in their respective fields. In addition, common templates for the syndrome-specific and separately for the agent-specific chapters allow the reader to readily access material. Since publication of the second edition in 2002, all of the chapters have been extensively revised to incorporate new information and relevant citations. In addition, the rapidly expanding field of antiviral drugs demanded dividing the subject into two chapters.

"The new third edition of this essential reference has been extensively revised and updated to incorporate the latest developments and relevant research," says Richman.
