Abstract

Investigation of the biology, pathology and immunology of rickettsial diseases offers new insights useful not only for the field of rickettsiology, but more importantly for the understanding of general principles of host-intracellular parasite relationships and, in particular, the immune interaction between endothelial cells and immune cells in the context of infection.
