Contemporary Approaches to Vaccination Against Herpes Simplex Virus

  • R. L. Burke
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 179)


The task of writing a comprehensive review on the subject of herpes simplex virus (HSV) vaccines is daunting. Instead, this review will cover selected points of recent interest. Others have reviewed the topic more broadly (Meignier 1985; Hall and Katrak 1986; Dix 1987; Stanberry 1991) or deait with selected aspects such as recombinant vaccines (Watson and Enquist 1985) or subunit HSV vaccines (Stanberry 1990).
