IMMUNOLOGY AND PATHOGENESIS OF VIRAL HEMORRHAGIC FEVERS Diagnostics and Discovery in Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers

Abstract

The rate of discovery of new microbes and of new associations of microbes with health and disease is accelerating. Many factors contribute to this phenomenon including those that favor the true emergence of new pathogens as well as new technologies and paradigms that enable their detection and characterization. This chapter reviews recent progress in the field of pathogen surveillance and discovery with a focus on viral hemorrhagic fevers.
