One hundred years ago, when Martinus W. Beijerinck in Delft and Friedrich Loeffler on Riems Island discovered a new class of infectious agents in plants and animals, a new discipline was born. This book, a compilation of papers written by well-recognized scientists, gives an impression of the early days, the pioneer period and the current state of virology. Recent developments and future perspectives of this discipline are sketched against a historic background. With contributions by A. Alcami, D. Baulcombe, F. Brown, L. W. Enquist, H. Feldmann, A. Garcia-Sastre, D. Griffiths, M. C. Horzinek, A. van Kammen, H.-D. Klenk, F. A. Murphy, T. Muster, R. O'Neill, P. Palese, C. Patience, R. Rott, H.- P. Schmiedebach, S. Schneider-Schaulies, G. L.

100 years of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin: Reviews and New Perspectives is a collection of articles written by some of the world's leading experts on the pregnancy hormone and cancer marker hCG. In 2019 it is difficult to ignore the effect that our understanding of hCG has had on the lives of millions of people worldwide. The hCG immunoassay, in one form or another, is now one of the most common medical tests conducted and is often the first indication that a mother-to-be is pregnant. Not only a marker of pregnancy, hCG is utilized in the diagnosis and monitoring in oncology and presents a potential target for novel cancer therapeutics. 100 years ago, in 1919, Hirose was demonstrating gonadotropic functions which resulted from a chorionic factor. Over the last century this factor has become defined as hCG and more recently explored as not one molecule but a group of molecules with variable structure and variable functions in both pregnancy and cancer. hCG is a multi-faceted molecule that has clinical and therapeutic implications but can be a challenging topic for researchers and physicians alike. This text covers the different structures and functions of hCG exploring the genes and evolution of the molecule, the different protein and glycosylation structures which can exist and their effect on structure, detection and quantification. 100 Years of hCG is not an attempt to recount the history of every publication on hCG, but rather a collection of reviews and new perspectives by "hCG-ologists", the term used by Hussa to describe biochemists working on HCG in the first book written on the topic over 30 years ago. Some of the authors have been around a while, some not so long, but others are just beginning their journey with a most beguiling molecule. Provides updated information on a complex and changing subject in five sections Reviews historical perspectives and developments over the last 100 years Includes novel insights into the structure, function and detection of hCG in pregnancy and cancer Includes chapters on the use of mass spectrometry to detect and quantify hCG as well as traditional immunoassays and over the counter pregnancy tests Describes the role of hCG in pregnancy, endometrial receptivity and embryo implantation and the use in fertility treatment Addresses the specific hyperglycosylated hCG test that can distinguish a normal term from a failing pregnancy and also screen for preeclampsia and gestational hypertension in pregnancy as well as its use as a marker and treatment target in cancer. Includes chapters on the development and use of hCG vaccines Includes a section on hCG and in subunits in cancer
Covers animal, insect, plant and bacterial viruses. Virus entries may include information on taxonomy and classification, genetics, evolution, epidemiology, transmission, pathogenicity, clinical features of infection, pathology and histopathology, immune response, and prevention and control.

A comprehensive introduction to the field of virology, this book covers the history and the evolution of the virus family and relates them in terms of genetic information and their relationship to the host.The book considers the biological aspects of virology followed by coverage of ethic structure, organizes content to introduce the families of viruses in association with major clinical and biological features - the structure, replicative cycle, and progeny virus production and includes a chapter on major human diseases studied by researchers worldwide.

Virology is that branch of microbiology concerned with viruses and diseases. These groups of minute infectious agents are, with certain exceptions (e.g., poxviruses) lack an independent metabolism and replicate only within living host cells. Like living organisms, they reproduce with genetic continuity and also mutate. Normally classified into three subgroups on the basis of host specificity (bacterial viruses, animal viruses, and plant viruses), they are also classified by origin, mode of transmission, symptoms produced, and where first located.

Virology is one of the most dynamic areas of clinical medicine. The new second edition of this essential reference has been extensively revised and updated to incorporate the latest developments and relevant citations. Covering 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. Clinical Virology is divided into two major sections. The first section 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 gene therapy. The second section provides agent–specific chapters that detail the virology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis, and prevention and treatment of important human viral pathogens. Offering comprehensive, original coverage of the viruses that cause human disease, this is the definitive reference work on clinical virology. Key Features Common templates for the syndrome–specific and separately for the agent–specific chapters allow the reader to readily access material New chapters on TTV and zoonotic paramyxoviruses Covers molecular biology, pathogenesis, immunity, clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention Contributors are all internationally recognized experts actively involved in their fields To see the complete table of contents click here
