Summary

In 1999, a deadly strain of West Nile virus struck parts of the northeastern United States. Caused by a virus from the family Flaviridae, genus Flavivirus, the disease was common in Africa and the Middle East. Today, it can be found across North America, Europe, and Asia. West Nile can cause serious illness and, in severe cases, lead to encephalitis, a swelling of the brain, which can be fatal. West Nile Virus, Third Edition takes a look at the origins of this disease, how it is transmitted, how it is treated, and what measures are being taken to combat it.  

Chapters include:

  • The West Nile Panic
  • A Foreign Virus Emerges in the United States
  • Structure and Function of the West Nile Virus
  • A Virus Transmitted by Mosquitoes
  • How West Nile Virus Causes Disease
  • Diagnosis and Treatment of West Nile Virus
  • Vaccines and Prevention.
