Maintaining the features that made the previous editions so successful, the Third Edition of "Laboratory Diagnosis of Viral Infections" summarizes the clinical, epidemiological, pathogenetic, and immunological features of a certain disease or infection. Providing laboratorians with a practical tool for the principles and techniques used in diagnostic virology, this book contains a new chapter covering the important Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. Fully updated since the last edition that was published eight years ago, and alphabetically arranged for quick and easy reference, "Laboratory Diagnosis of Viral Infections, Third Edition" now contains: a complete update on human herpesviruses 6, 7, and 8; expanded coverage of hepatitis, including enterically transmitted hepatitis viruses and parenterally transmitted viruses; new material on rubella featuring instrumentation for determination of antibodies; a new chapter on the serological diagnosis for selected viruses; a new discussion on HPV and the diagnostic value of molecular detection of the viral DNA; novel developments on rapid test methods for detection of cytomegalovirus; new sections on current information and applications for the amplification and detection of nucleic acids in clinical specimens; and a detailed, up-to-date description of Epstein-Barr virus and its effect on immunocompromised patients. Specifically written for laboratory technologists responsible for supplying information to physicians to support or rule out a clinical diagnosis, "Laboratory Diagnosis of Viral Infections, Third Edition" is a hands-on resource for clinical virologists, clinical microbiologists, clinical pathologists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
