About this book

This book will assemble the views of many of the world's experts in the field of viruses and diabetes. It will look critically at some unanswered questions, in the field. Among these, How do viruses destroy or modify the pancreatic islet? Which viruses are involved? What is the role of virus-induced cytokines> Could vaccines prevent virus-induced diabetes? Until recent technological advances, progress in the understanding of the relationship between viruses and diabetes has been hampered. New technologies are helping shed new light on these mysteries. This will be the first comprehensive volume on this topic.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book discusses the history, science, and potential mechanisms that associate viruses and diabetes. … It is most appropriate for those involved in basic and translational research. … Its best feature is the short abstract that begins each chapter, which gives readers a summary of what is discussed in the chapter. In addition, the book is well referenced, allowing for further reading if desired. … This is a well-written, comprehensive book that provides up-to-date information about the research field of diabetes and virology.” (Rebecca L. Brown, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2012)
