The cytomegalovirus is not only scientifically fascinating, but responsible for significant morbidity and mortality throughout the world. The Third International CMV Workshop provided the forum for a comprehensive analysis of the state of the art in the various fields of CMV research. This text contains the overviews and oral communications presented, evenly distributed between basic science and clinical sessions. Several up-to-date short reviews appear and each chapter is written by a leading expert in that field. Some subjects covered include new information on genome organization deduced from the complete nucleotide sequence, the clinical importance of CMV from classic diseases to novel associations, and virus-host-cell and CMV-HIV interactions.
