Virology & antiviral research

  1. 1. Virology & Antiviral Research
  2. 2. Virology Virology is the analysis of viruses; submicroscopic, parasitic contaminants of inherited content included in a proteins cover. It concentrates on the following factors of viruses: their framework, category and progress, their ways to contaminate and manipulate variety tissues for duplication, their connections with variety patient framework and resistance. The illnesses they cause, the methods to separate and lifestyle them, and their use in analysis and treatment. Virology is regarded to be a sub-field of microbiology or of medication.
  3. 3. A significant division of virology is malware category. Malware can be categorized according to the variety mobile they infect: creature viruses, place viruses, fungus viruses, and bacteriophages. Another category uses the geometric form of their capsid or the virus's framework. Malware variety in dimension from about 30nm to about 450nm, which indicates that most of them cannot be seen with mild microscopes. The form and framework of viruses has been analyzed by electron microscopy, NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. Virology
  4. 4. The most useful and most commonly used category program differentiates viruses according to the kind of nucleic acidity. They use as inherited content and the popular duplication technique they implement to talk variety tissues into generating more viruses: DNA viruses (divided into double-stranded DNA viruses and single-stranded DNA viruses), RNA viruses (divided into positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses, negative-sense single-stranded RNA viruses and the much less typical double-stranded RNA viruses), opposite transcription viruses (double-stranded reverse- transcribing DNA viruses and single-stranded reverse- transcribing RNA viruses such as retroviruses).
  5. 5. • Antiviral drugs are a class of medication used specifically for treating viral infections. • Like antibiotics for bacteria, specific antivirals are used for specific viruses. • Unlike most antibiotics, antiviral drugs do not destroy their target pathogen; instead they inhibit their development. • Antiviral drugs are one class of anti-microbials, a larger group which also includes antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic drugs. • They are relatively harmless to the host, and therefore can be used to treat infections. Antiviral Research
  6. 6. • They should be distinguished from viricides, which are not medication but deactivate or destroy virus particles, either inside or outside the body. • Antivirals also can be found in essential oils of some herbs, such as eucalyptus oil and its constituents. • Most of the antiviral drugs now available are designed to help deal with HIV, herpes viruses. • The hepatitis B and C viruses, which can cause liver cancer, and influenza A and B viruses. • Researchers are working to extend the range of antivirals to other families of pathogens.
