MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Epstein Barr virus (EBV) was discovered as the first human tumor virus around 50 years ago. Since its discovery in Burkitt’s lymphoma it has been associated with various other malignancies, infectious mononucleosis and even autoimmune diseases. The two book volumes on EBV summarize the first 50 years of research on this tumor virus, starting with historical perspectives on discovery, oncogenicity and immune control, reviewing the role that the virus plays in the various associated diseases and concluding with a discussion on how the immune system keeps persistent EBV infection under control in healthy EBV carriers and can be used to treat EBV associated diseases. The respective 32 chapters are written by international experts from three continents for health care providers, biomedical researchers and patients that are affected by EBV. The assembled knowledge should help to understand EBV associated diseases better and to develop EBV specific vaccination in the near future.


Feature:

Historical reminiscence of Professor Sir Anthony Epstein on the discovery of EBV 50 years ago

32 comprehensive chapters on EBV virology, tumorigenesis and immune control

Newest insights on EBV strain variation, the recombinant EBV system and in vivo models of infection

Comprehensive account of EBV associated diseases, including autoimmune diseases

Update on EBV specific therapies including adoptive T cell transfer and new vaccine formulations
