Virus Infections of the Nervous System (Intervirology, 2-3) ebook

by T. Weber


Infections caused by cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes simplex virus and varicella-zoster virus were . Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that leads to inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration.

Infections caused by cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes simplex virus and varicella-zoster virus were also studied. During the mean follow-up period of 3 1/2 months post-transplant (range, 2 to 6 months), 9 recipients (36%) had serologic evidence of HHV-6 infection. Viral aetiology has been suspected to be an MS trigger for a long time, and herpesviruses (HSs) are among the potential pathogens involved.

The Central Nervous System controls most of the functions of the body and mind. It comprises the brain, spinal cord and the nerve fibers that branch off to all parts of the body. The Central Nervous System viral diseases are caused by viruses that attack the CNS. Existing and emerging viral CNS infections are major sources of human morbidity and mortality

Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is one of the most important zoonoses in Europe, and it may induce encephalitis in humans.

In addition, they show how environmental factors increase viral decay, while viral strategies allow viral environmental persistence to increase. Survival of Viruses in Water. Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is one of the most important zoonoses in Europe, and it may induce encephalitis in humans. Rodents are also infected and play a role in spreading and maintaining natural TBEV foci.

Neurovirology is an interdisciplinary field which represents a melding of clinical neuroscience, virology, immunology, and molecular biology. The main focus of the field is to study viruses capable of infecting the nervous system. In addition to this, the field studies the use of viruses to trace neuroanatomical pathways, for gene therapy, and to eliminate detrimental populations of neural cells.

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a cause of neurologic disease among humans. Both primary infection and recurrence may lead to neurologic infection and disease. Neurologic syndromes associated with acute VZV infection are caused by abnormal immune responses, the most frequent manifestation being cerebellar ataxia. Those associated with recurrences are often due to the direct effect of viral replication in the nervous tissue. VZV reaches the nervous system either through the bloodstream or by direct spread from sensory ganglia where it remains latent.

Special Topic Issue: Intervirology 1997, Vol. 40, No. 2-3 It is well documented that a multitude of neurological disorders are caused by viruses and other transmissible agents. In recent years the interdisciplinary field of neurovirology has developed rapidly, and today, the powerful tools of molecular biology such as in situ hybridization and the polymerase chain reaction permit detailed analysis and detection of as few as one copy of a viral gene in histological sections or body fluids. This special issue compiles informative and timely reviews by specialists in clinical neurology, infectious diseases and virology, some of whom worked jointly under the auspices of the European Union's BIOMED program. Three articles cover the spectrum of syndromes caused by Herpes simplex Virus (HSV)-1 and HSV-2, Varicella-zoster Virus and Cytomegalovirus infection. Further viruses under consideration include enteroviruses, Rubella Virus, Measles Virus and retroviruses like HIV and HTLV-I/II, known to be responsible for specific neurological syndromes ranging from dementia, diseases of the basal ganglia to spastic paraparesis. Animal models, such as Simian Immunodeficiency Virus and Theiler's Murine Encephalomyelitis Virus infection are presented. Additional chapters discuss progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, the role of Borna virus infection in the etiology of psychiatric diseases and the spectrum of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Providing an excellent survey of the field, this publication is indispensable for clinicians and investigators in virology, infectious diseases, neurology and molecular biology.
