Sample text

Following entry, many types of viruses must move or be moved through the host to establish infection at a preferred site, the infection of which results in disease symptoms. This site, often referred to as the target tissue or target organ, is often (but not always) important in mediating the symptoms of disease, or the spread, or both. There are several modes of virus spread in the host. Perhaps the most frequent mode utilized by viruses is through the circulatory system (viremia). A number of viruses can spread in the bloodstream either passively as free virus or adsorbed to the surface of cells that they do not infect, such as red blood cells.

2 Viral genes are expressed using host cell processes. This viral gene expression results in synthesis of a few or many viral proteins involved in the replication process. 3 Viral proteins modify the host cell and allow the viral genome to replicate using host and viral enzymes. While this is a simple statement, the actual mechanisms by which viral enzymes and proteins can subvert a cell are manifold and complex. This is often the stage at which the cell is irreversibly modified and eventually killed.

Of course, this dynamic interaction between pathogen and host is not confined to viruses; any pathogen exhibits it. The study and characterization of the genetic accommodations viruses make, both to natural resistance generated in a population of susceptible hosts and to humandirected efforts at controlling the spread of viral disease, provide much insight into evolutionary processes and population dynamics. Indeed, many of the methodologies developed for the study of interactions between organisms and their environment can be applied to the interaction between pathogen and host.
