Jenny Dorth & Jonathan Volk

Humans and Viruses

March 2000


This web page is intended to supplement previous Humans and Viruses Adenoviridae student web pages. It contains primary reference updates from 1999-2000, links to previous student web pages, and Adenoviridae information resources on WWW. In addition, representative viral profiles of the Adenoviridae family will be given that include incubation, epidemiology, symptomology and management.

Though not related to the Adenoviridae family, links to mock viral "Pokémon" cards designed by Jonathan Volk and Jenny Dorth are included. These cards outline the pathogenesis of six viruses, each from different viral families.

Lastly, information about the mechanism and administration of two antiviral drugs, zidovudine (AZT) and trifluridine (TFT), is provided.

Jonathan Volk and Jenny Dorth are both Juniors at Stanford University. More than anything in the world, Jenny and Jonathan enjoy spending all of their Friday and Saturday evenings hiding behind Fields Virology in the basement of Lane Medical Library. However, they both look forward to next quarter when they will be able to study for more than just one class. In addition, Jonathan and Jenny are excited that after they complete their Humans & Viruses final examination, they will once again be able to eat, sleep, and reestablish contact with friends and family.
