Published Reviews "This book provides comprehensive information on both common and rare flaviviruses for scientists interested in virology, clinical diseases associated with the flaviviruses, and the human immunological response to these pathogens. The fully referenced chapters provide readers with the opportunity to critically appraise the evidence level within and to identify potential opportunities for future inquiry and research." ©Doody's Review Service, 2022, Kari A Simonsen, MD, MBA (University of Nebraska Medical Center)
