Immunopathology, Volume 107 in the Advances in Virus Research series, highlights new advances in the field, with this new volume presenting interesting chapters. Each chapter is written by an international board of authors.
Viral Immunopathology will cover how the immune system, innate or adaptive, is often at the root of viral pathogenesis. This is true in diverse host systems including vertebrates, plants and insects. This volume will present the latest findings in this interesting and important area of research, and will include human, plant, fish, and insect viruses. Different kingdoms have evolved very diverse immune responses to virus infection but the common theme - namely, that effects of viruses on host immune systems can condition the induction of viral disease - will unify this concept across kingdoms.
- The immune system is often responsible for virus pathology
- Plants, animals and insects all mount immune responses to virus infection that can increase pathology
- Both innate and adaptive immune responses can result in immunopathology
