About the book

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a serious infection virus that is related to the herpes viruses and causes chickenpox and mononucleosis. CMV can develop in people who are immunocompromised and immunodeficient, called opportunistic infections. Opportunistic infections only occur if your immune system is quite weakened. Most adults carry CMV but are unaware of it because the virus cannot produce disease. In people with severely weakened immune systems, CMV can make a person feel as though they have mono. CMV can also cause serious diseases in different parts of the body. CMV spreads from person to person through body fluids, such as blood, saliva, urine, semen, and breast milk. Women who develop an active CMV infection during pregnancy can pass the virus to their neonates, who might then experience symptoms. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection induces both innate immune responses including Natural Killer cells as well as adaptive humoral and cell-mediated (CD4+ helper, CD8+ cytotoxic and γδ T cell) responses which lead to the resolution of acute primary infection. Therefore, recognition of immunopathology, pathogenesis and immune response against CMV are necessary.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Elena Vracaric

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
