A vital text for researchers and clinicians in the fields of virology and oncology alike, this book is a comprehensive guide to one of medicine's most important tools that covers the most recent research. Important insights have been made in recent months that are challenging the accepted concept of the critical role of dsRNA in IFN induction. Recent work with genetically modified mice seems to confirm the original idea that interferon is the first cellular defense against viral infection.
