Viruses are not important causes of clinical disease of rabbits in the USA but include the infectious fibromas, papillomatosis, rabbitpox, myxomatosis, and a herpesvirus infection virus 3. Rotaviral enteritis also has been diagnosed in the USA and seems to contribute to the overall problem of intestinal disease in rabbits.
Zika virus ZIKV has been declared a public health emergency that requires development of an effective vaccine, as it might represent an international threat. Citation: Virology Journal 18 Content type: Research. Published on: 4 March Recent studies have demonstrated that MARCH proteins play critical roles during various viral infections Content type: Review.
Based on the highly successful reference work Viral Pathogenesis published in , this concise, economical version can be used both as an introductory text or for self-education by medical students and biologists alike. This latest edition provides a completely revised overview of the subject with new chapters on innate immunity, emerging viral diseases, and antiviral therapy in a format that is easy to understand without continually referring to additional information. Used by the author in his graduate classes at the University of Pennsylvania, it sets forth the essential principles and discusses the details of how the immune system responds to viral invasion including the treatment and prevention of infection. Illustrated by pertinent examples it is one of the only books devoted exclusively to this topic. Instructors and students of graduate or medical school course in viral pathogenesis, virology or microbiology. Can also be used as a reference for professionals, students and trainees in virology, immunology, infectious diseases, pathology, laboratory medicine, epidemiology and public health. He has spent most of his year career working on the pathogenesis of a wide variety of viral infections, using animal models to investigate the viral and host determinants of disease.
Viruses cause a variety of diseases in animals, including humans, ranging from the common cold to potentially fatal illnesses like meningitis Figure 1. These diseases can be treated by antiviral drugs or by vaccines, but some viruses, such as HIV, are capable of both avoiding the immune response and mutating to become resistant to antiviral drugs. Figure 1. Viruses can cause dozens of ailments in humans, ranging from mild illnesses to serious diseases. While we do have limited numbers of effective antiviral drugs, such as those used to treat HIV and influenza, the primary method of controlling viral disease is by vaccination, which is intended to prevent outbreaks by building immunity to a virus or virus family Figure 2. Vaccines may be prepared using live viruses, killed viruses, or molecular subunits of the virus.
It requires a living cell in which to multiply. A viral infection can lead to a spectrum of symptoms from asymptomatic no overt symptoms to severe disease. People may get viruses by swallowing or inhaling them, by being bitten by insects, or through sexual contact. Most commonly, viral infections involve the nose, throat, and upper airways, or systems such as the nervous, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems. Doctors may base the diagnosis on symptoms, blood tests and cultures, or examination of infected tissues. Antiviral drugs may interfere with the reproduction of viruses or strengthen the immune response to the viral infection. A virus is a small infectious organism—much smaller than a fungus or bacterium—that must invade a living cell to reproduce replicate.
Viral diseases contribute to substantial morbidity and mortality and remain a major threat to global health. Although vaccines are notably successful in the prevention of many infections, effective vaccines are not available for most viruses including the pandemic human immunodeficiency virus HIV and hepatitis C virus HCV. Direct antiviral agents can efficiently inhibit the replication of certain viruses but generally do not provide sterilizing cures, with the notable exception of HCV infection.

A viral disease or viral infection occurs when an organism's body is invaded by pathogenic viruses , and infectious virus particles virions attach to and enter susceptible cells. Basic structural characteristics, such as genome type, virion shape and replication site, generally share the same features among virus species within the same family. Exceptions are known to this rule: poxviruses replicate within the cytoplasm and orthomyxoviruses and hepatitis D virus RNA viruses replicate within the nucleus. The clinical characteristics of viruses may differ substantially among species within the same family:. Vertical and sexual .
Viral pathogenesis is the study of the process and mechanisms by which viruses cause diseases in their target hosts , often at the cellular or molecular level. It is a specialized field of study in virology. Pathogenesis is a qualitative description of the process by which an initial infection causes disease. There are several factors that affect pathogenesis. Some of these factors include virulence characteristics of the virus that is infecting.
Viral infections are the leading cause of gastroenteritis globally and in Europe and may also cause enterically transmitted hepatitis and illness after migrating from the human intestine to other organs. Various viruses have been implicated in foodborne illness, with two types of virus, Norovirus and Hepatitis A, causing the most significant burden of foodborne illness and outbreaks, as they are highly contagious. Rotavirus is one of the major causes of diarrhoea in children and Hepatitis E, while primarily associated with waterborne infections, has been associated with foodborne outbreaks. Food borne transmission is important in the epidemiology of these four viruses, in addition to person-to-person contact and environmental transmission. Adenovirus, Astrovirus, Sapovirus, tick borne encephalitis and Avian Influenza H5N1 may also cause viral infections where food is a vector.
