Sample text

Following entry, many types of viruses must move or be moved through the host to establish infection at a preferred site, the infection of which results in disease symptoms. This site, often referred to as the target tissue or target organ, is often (but not always) important in mediating the symptoms of disease, or the spread, or both. There are several modes of virus spread in the host. Perhaps the most frequent mode utilized by viruses is through the circulatory system (viremia). A number of viruses can spread in the bloodstream either passively as free virus or adsorbed to the surface of cells that they do not infect, such as red blood cells.

Perhaps the most frequent mode utilized by viruses is through the circulatory system (viremia). A number of viruses can spread in the bloodstream either passively as free virus or adsorbed to the surface of cells that they do not infect, such as red blood cells. Direct entry of virus into the lymphatic circulatory system also can lead to viremia. Some viruses that replicate in the gut (such as poliovirus) can directly enter the lymphatic system via Peyer’s patches (gut-associated lymphoid tissue) in the intestinal mucosa.
