The proportion of circulating influenza viruses resistant to oseltamivir increased from 12% during the 2007-08 season to 99% during the 2008-09 season in the United States, and new interim guidelines for use of antiviral agents
were released in December 2008 (15).
Further investigations are thus required to understand more of the molecular interactions between SP-2a and the viral particles before SP-2a can be further developed as a novel antiviral agent
, especially against ACV-resistant viruses.
Ghany told clinicians that, with the current Food and Drug Administration--approved regimens, "efficacy of therapy is improving and cure is now possible." The addition of direct-acting antiviral agents
to regimens previously containing only peginterferon and ribavirin has been "a game-changer," Dr.
Recently, investigators showed that giving a neuraminidase inhibitor to mice infected with influenza virus A (H5N1) was not nearly as effective as treating the mice with an antiviral agent
and 2 immunomodulatory agents, mesalazine, a PPAR[gamma] agonist, and celecoxib, a cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitor (28,29).
She was not identified as having an immunological disorder, and her colitis responded to treatment with ganciclovir, a new antiviral agent
Teslexivir is a topical antiviral agent
that is a potent and selective inhibitor of the interaction between two essential viral proteins, E1 and E2, an interaction that is a necessary step for human papilloma virus DNA replication and thus viral production.
Approved by the FDA in December of 2014, peramivir (Rapivab) is the only antiviral agent
for influenza treatment to come to market in nearly 20 years.
The results suggest that a simple chemical change can convert APOBEC3F to a more effective antiviral agent
and that shielding of a common feature shared by related proteins may yield a similar outcome, say researchers at the University of Minnesota.
Studies done in the 1980s and 1990s showed that the antiviral agent
acylovir reduced levels of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in patients with infectious mononucleosis, but did not produce significant clinical benefit.
Tea contains tannin, which is an antibacterial and antiviral agent
and protects against dental decay.
