Morphological Alterations of the Host Cell as an Essential Basis for Poliovirus Replication
The infection of cells by viruses is often followed by specific morphological alterations (Schrom and Bablanian, 1981). These alterations have been studied both with the light and the electron microscope (EM). Early investigations described them as cellular injury (Ackermann et al., 1954), cellular lesion (Barski et al., 1955), or cytopathic change (Dunnebacke, 1956).
