The Coxsackie B viruses (CVBs), human enteroviruses that are responsible for numerous cases of pediatric central nervous system infections as well as both childhood and adult heart muscle infections, were discovered in 1948. The CVBs are commonly encountered human infectious agents and certainly one of the most clinically significant human enterovirus groups. This volume includes discussions of CVB epidemiology, the roles of immune responses to CVB infections, virion structure, RNA higher order structures, virus receptors, and the genetics of CVB virulence.
