The theme of this book is the growing threat from an influenza pandemic. It includes reference to events up to mid-2004 in Asia, which gives it a topical feel despite the familiarity of much of the subject matter. The book is constructed along traditional lines, with chapters on virus structure and replication, antigenic drift and shift, the immune response, pathogenesis, clinical features and diagnosis, social and economic impact, vaccination, treatment and prophylaxis, and novel developments in influenza control.
