Adenovirus Infections in Humans

  • Stephen E. Straus
Part of the The Viruses book series (VIRS)


Adenoviruses are ubiquitous agents that infect humans of all ages. The discovery of the first adenovirus types three decades ago paved the way for countless studies that continue to uncover additional viral strains and ever expand our comprehension of their significance to man. Whereas some human adenoviruses are being examined at the increasingly sophisticated molecular and cellular levels, the means by which they infect man, provoke illness, or are handled by the body’s immune system remain very poorly understood.
