* Contains recommendations for diagnosis, risk assessment, prophylaxis and treatment of viral and parasitic infections of most organisms involved in congenital diseases
* An impressive list of internationally known scientists in the field of congenital diseases and related subjects
This book is directed toward the molecular composition, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and control of congenital and other related diseases of the newborn that are caused by a variety of viruses. These viruses comprise several families that include Herpesviridae (HSV-1, HSV-2, HSV-6, HSV-7, CMV and varcilla-zoster); Parvoviridae (parvovirus B19); Lentiviridae (HIV); Hepadnaviridae (HBV); Flaviviridae (HCV); and Togaviridae (RV).
Leading researchers in childhood diseases and virology from Brazil, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the United States of America report on the up-to-date advances in the molecular virology, immunology, biochemistry, pathology, diagnosis, prevalence and treatment of selected congenital and other related diseases of the newborn.
Researchers, academics and postgraduates working in medical and molecular virology, epidemiology, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, as well as clinical scientists and public health physicians
