CULTIVATION OF HUMAN VIRUSES

 

 

The study and identification of viruses (for diagnosis) depends on our ability to propagate them. In the early days of virology, viruses were propagated in a host. To some extent, this is still the case today with the use of the chick embryo (see below). However, progress in cell culture has revolutionized the cultivation of many viruses, enabling a better understanding of their replication properties, more rapid diagnosis and the easier production of vaccine (Table 5.3).
