The subject of viral hepatitis results in about 10,000 new papers each year, from molecular structure to newest treatments. This edition of Viral Hepatitis, edited by mainstream contributors to this vast literature, assisted by 80 authors, provides a meeting place for virologists and clinicians.
The established viruses A to E and G are systematically reviewed with detailed chapters on structure, epidemiology, natural history and experimental modes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. Ten chapters are provided on clinical topics, which include in-depth monographs on fulminant hepatitis, transfusion-associated hepatitis, hepatitis in hemophilia and HIV, and transplantation.
