Over 50% of known flaviviruses have been associated with human disease. The Flavivirus genus constitutes some of the most serious human pathogens including Japanese encephalitis, dengue and yellow fever. Flaviviruses are known for their complex life cycles and epidemic spread, and are considered a globally-emergent viral threat.

Detection, Diagnosis and Vaccine Development, the third volume of The Flaviviruses details the current status of technologies for detection and differentiation of these viruses, their use in surveillance and outbreak investigation, and also reviews the latest clinical research.

  • Comprehensive approach to the scientific disciplines needed to unravle the complexities of virus-host interactions
  • Descibes the technologies that have contributed to our current knowledge about the Flaviviruses
  • Identifies the major problems faced in understanding the virus-host interactins that result in disease
  • An exhaustive compendium of current and past knowledge on the Flavivirus family
