Abstract

The attack on viruses and virus-infected cells by the mammalian immune system has provided considerable selective pressure for viruses that have evolved vigorous countermeasures to pre-empt, neutralize or evade this host attack. These countermeasures are astonishingly diverse, and their study imparts fundamental information about immunology and the mechanisms enabling viruses to survive and cause disease.
