Emerging and Re-Emerging Viral Infections

Book Cover
In the last decades, several viruses emerged, as the consequence of cross-species passage from animal reservoirs to human being. Emerging infections always represent a significant challenge for public health system because knowledge about specific pathogens are generally little while at the same time we have few or no effective interventions. Emerging and Re-Emerging Viral Infections explores special aspects of emerging infectious diseases including:
• Application of the theory of focality of diseases to infective syndrome
• The human-animal inter-face focusing on influenza
• The role of bats as the main reservoir of emerging and novel human pathogens
• MERS-CoV epidemiology and clinical presentation
• The immediate impact on human health of the last Zika virus outbreak
• The role and potential application of animal models for the study of emerging infections during an outbreak
