In September 1978, a unique international and interdisciplinary symposium was held in Hamburg, Germany. The subject matter during that three-day meeting concerned the current status and future projections for chemotherapy of herpesvirus. Clinicians, including many ophthalmologists and dermatologists, actively exchanged ideas and information with pharmacologists, virologists, chemists, and biochemists in an excellent series of formal presentations and informal discussions. One of the most important products of this meeting was a comprehensive 300-page book published within six months of the meeting as a result of the well-organized efforts of the editor, K. K. Gauri, and the publisher, S Karger AG. The material in this volume is very much up to date.
The eye has always served as one of the best models for the study of herpetic disease, both in humans and in animals. Accordingly, many of the articles will be of interest to both the research and the practicing ophthalmologist
