Such breadth is more often a team than a tandem effort and readers must admire the depth of scholarship involved. The benefit is an evenness of coverage and integration of subject matter, sometimes lacking in multi-author productions. Despite the vast subject area, the referencing touching on is reasonably contemporary.

This is a book at a fair price to bring the reader up to speed with the research literature, to bring the concerned clinician to moleclar virology, the molecular virologists to the medical problems which are becoming amenable to solution by molecular techniques and, not least, a reference book for undergraduates.

Its production in Fenner's 80th birthday year is fitting tribute to the two of the pillars of Australian virology.

Fenner and White's Medical Virology

It is highly recommended as providing a first-class grounding in virology for medical and science undergraduates For postgraduate study in clinical or laboratory research in virology, this book provides an invaluable comprehensive and balanced foundation to complement more detailed selective reference material. A 'must' on the shelves of all those connected, however remotely, with virological topics and it should be stressed that despite its title it is not in the least limited to material likely to be of interest only to medical workers.

The basic scientist, the research diagnostician, the physician, and the epidemiologist will, together with many others, find that an outstanding textbook in this field has now been provided. These illustrations have been subdivided for ease of presentation into figures line drawings , tables, and plates photographs. The tables are invariably concise, and they adequately illustrate and reinforce material presented in the text.

It is very difficult to make a good book even better, but White and Fenner have managed to do so.

Medical Virology: A Practical Approach

Paperback ISBN: Viruses are small, subcellular agents that are unable to multiply outside a host cell intracellular, obligate parasitism. The assembled virus virion is formed to include only one type of nucleic acid RNA or DNA and, in the simplest viruses, a protective protein coat. The nucleic acid contains the genetic information necessary to program the synthetic machinery of the host cell for viral replication. The protein coat serves two main functions: first, it protects the nucleic acid from extracellular environmental insults such as nucleases; second, it permits attachment of the virion to the membrane of the host cell, the negative charge of which would repel a naked nucleic acid.

Once the viral genome has penetrated and thereby infected the host cell, virus replication mainly depends on host cell machinery for energy and synthetic requirements. The various virion components are synthesized separately within the cell and then assembled to form progeny particles. This assembly type of replication is unique to viruses and distinguishes them from all other small, obligate, intracellular parasites.

The basic structure of viruses may permit them to be simultaneously adaptable and selective. Many viral genomes are so adaptable that once they have penetrated the cell membrane under experimental conditions, viral replication can occur in almost any cell.

Medical Virology 8

On the other hand, intact viruses are so selective that most virions can infect only a limited range of cell types. This selectivity exists largely because penetration of the nucleic acid usually requires a specific reaction for the coat to attach to the host cell membrane and some specific intracellular components. Although some viruses may establish some forms of silent infection of cells, their multiplication usually causes cell damage or death; however, since viruses must depend on host survival for their own survival, they tend to establish mild infections in which death of the host is more an aberration than a regular outcome.

Notable exceptions are HIV, ebola virus, hantavirus and rabiesvirus. Viruses are distinct among microorganisms in their extreme dependence on the host cell. Since a virus must grow within a host cell, the virus must be viewed together with its host in any consideration of pathogenesis, epidemiology, host defenses, or therapy.

The bilateral association between the virus and its host imposes specific conditions for pathogenesis.
