|MadSci Network: Medicine|
Hi Christina, I know what it is like trying to wade through a sea of information so maybe I can point you to a good site to find exactly what you want. I would suggest you try a site called All the Virology on the Worldwide Web cause it has links to lots of information life cycles and and therapies as well as electron micrographs. You can search by specific viruses, in your case Varicella zoster virus (VZV-1) AKA Human Herpes Virus-3 (HHV-3). Just in case I suggest you check out this journal in your science library if you can find it; Infections in Medicine vol. 15 (10):pg 709-713, 1998 by Paul J. Lee called "Current Management of Herpes Zoster." There will also be references to other papers in the bibliography that you can look up for more info. Web resources like the one above are good because they link to evidence based information. But, I really recommend you get information from journals like the one I recommended or something like the New England Journal of Medicine because they are more trustworthy sources and up to date. Good luck on the paper, Mark
