  • ​Fills a niche in which there is a dearth of material
  • Considers multiple strains of viruses and their relationship to atherosclerosis
  • Is a brief, yet comprehensive study of the subject​
​​Will address an important, yet underrepresented, topic. The correlation between viruses and atherosclerosis has been a focal point of the authors’ work, for a number of years. This volume will explore the relationship between different viral strains and   atherosclerosis. It will begin by describing the hypothesis and denoting the mechanisms of virus-driven atherosclerosis, then expanding on the subject by focusing on different virus strains—from Herpes, to Epstein-Barr, to the triad of Hepatitis viruses, et al—on a chapter-by-chapter basis. While there are books, albeit few, that cover particular viral strains and their relationship to cardiovascular diseases, this work will be unique in its scope by considering multiple strains of viruses, making it a repository of information on the topic; a truly comprehensive volume.​
