The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of animal testing in the four major fields of infectiology - bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology - as well as in the development of vaccines. New and innovative techniques are introduced and their efficacies critically discussed. In addition, the book shows ways to refine, reduce and replace animal tests in infectiological research and considers ethical aspects of their use. A valuable source of information, this publication will be of interest to research scientists, regulatory agencies, veterinarians supervising experimental animals, breeders and anyone involved in the public debate on animal testing.Models of HSV infections (models for recurrent infections are described separately) Disease model Principle Pros and Cons Ref.
