    Symptoms of viral infection and treatment of it Symptoms of viral infection and treatment of it Presentation Transcript

    • Symptoms of viral infection and treatment of it with antiviral drugs like
      Generic Amantrel

    • There is a mystery around viruses and a controversy also about their being a living or non living thing. Viruses are extremely tiny- much smaller than bacteria. They invade individual cells and turn them into tiny factories to make more viruses. The pharmaceutical community has developed antibiotic after antibiotic to target an ever-growing group of bacterial pathogen, yet few medicines today work on viral infections.

    • Viral diseases include colds and flu, chicken pox, hepatitis, measles, herpes, viral pneumonia, shingles, Epstein Barr virus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), AIDS, and numerous others. That is also a host of intestinal viruses that cause diarrhea and other life-threatening symptoms which may become severe. Viruses cause serious health difficulties each year.

    • The viruses are the most harmful as they live as a non living thing but when they get inside the host body start to multiply and damages the host cell. Because of this particular symptoms of viral infection can be seen. Viruses work simply by entering a living cell (depending on the virus, this could be a bacterium, a plant cell, fungal cell or animal cell, such as a human cell) and essentially taking over the machinery of that cell.

    • The cell is then forced to produce more copies of the virus, until there are so many copies that the cell bursts, and all the little copies are free to attack neighboring cells. Viruses are extremely simple. A typical virus contains just a small length of DNA or RNA (genetic material) encased in a tough protein coat (the bad news). This protein coat is of a very specific shape, and it is this that allows the virus to enter a cell. In simple terms, the protein coat binds to structures on the surface of the cell it is attacking, allowing the virus (or at least its genetic material) to enter the cell. Once inside, the virus' genetic material takes over the cell, and millions of new copies are produced.

    • There are antiviral drugs which help to eliminate viral infection and reduce the symptoms. Generic Amantrel (Amantadine) is a synthetic anti-viral drug. Generic Amantrel (Amantadine) works by inhibiting the replication of viruses in the host cells. Though Amantadine is an anti-viral drug but it is also useful in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The exact mechanism of action of Generic Amantrel (Amantadine) in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease is not known yet.

    • The exact mechanism of anti-viral property of Generic Amantrel (Amantadine) is not clearly understood yet. It is believed that it prevents the release of infectious viral nucleic acid into the host cell. Generic Amantrel (Amantadine) does it by interfering with the function of transmemebrane domain of the viral M2 protein. It also prevents viral infection by inhibiting replication of viruses in host cell.
