Summary

This volume compiles state-of-the-art research in the area of persistent virus infections. A distinguished group of contributing virologists explore the mechanisms by which various viruses, including HIV-1, hantavirus, hepatitis, lentivirus, and measles persist within the human host. As such, this volume considers persistence on three separate levels: persistence within the cell, persistence within the individual human being, and persistence within the human population. Genetic changes associated with virus persistence are reviewed and intervention strategies are discussed.
