Classic paper: Are the chickenpox virus and the zoster virus identical?
- Reviews in medical virology
The significance of Helmut Ruska's work for the development of virology, his distinction between the varicella, zoster, and herpes virus group on one hand and poxviruses on the other, as well as theDevelopment of imaging techniques which have refined or substituted for electron microscopy of viruses and virus‐infected cells are discussed.

Rapid Viral Diagnosis of Orthopoxviruses by Electron Microscopy: Optional or a Must?
- Biology, Medicine
With its rapid results, no requirement for specific reagents and its “open view”, DEM remains an important component of virus diagnosis, particularly because it can easily and reliably distinguish smallpox virus or any other member of the orthopoxvirus genus from parapoxviruses and the far more common and less serious herpesviruses.

The Neurology of Varicella-Zoster Virus
Dendritic cells as Achilles’ heel and Trojan horse during varicella zoster virus infection
- Front. Microbiol.
The delicate interplay between VZV and DCs and its consequences for viral immune evasion and viral dissemination will be discussed in this article. Expand
Zeroing in on zoster: A tale of many disorders produced by one virus
- Journal of the Neurological Sciences
Scientific progress over the past 50 years has rapidly advanced the understanding and prevention of disease produced by VZV, and combined imaging and virological studies continue to reveal the protean neurological, ocular and visceral disorders produced by it. Expand
Electron microscopy in rapid viral diagnosis: an update.
- Computer Science, Medicine
- The new microbiologica
The evolvement of DEM and the role of its two branches - histopathology and rapid negative-contrast DEM - are described in this review, with a focus on the latter. Expand
Helmut Ruska (1908–1973): His Role in the Evolution of Electron Microscopy in the Life Sciences, and Especially Virology
- Computer Science, Chemistry
Helmut Ruska was a major figure in electron microscopy in the life sciences throughout his life and is remembered as a pioneer in vertebrate, plant and bacterial virology and in virus classification. Expand
Varizellen und Herpes zoster
- Medizinische Klinik
Varicella-zoster virus shows a ubiquitous distribution and is the cause for acute exanthema in childhood (chickenpox), and VZV establishes latency in the nucleus of the paraspinal cells as a characteristic of the α-herpesviridae. Expand
Herpes zoster: recent aspects of diagnosis and control.
The virology and laboratory investigations into Varicella-Zoster Virus and its replication by Bicyclic Furo[2,3-d] pyrimidine Nucleoside Analogues found it to be a highly Potent and Selective Inhibition of VariceLLA replicating virus. Expand
