In the retrovirus life cycle, the targeting of the specific protease that is necessary for the formation of an infectious virus particle has been particularly successful. Earlier, reverse transcriptase inhibitors had also been successful but the nucleoside analogs cause severe side effects because they also inhibit the host's DNA polymerase.

Co-Infection with Hepatitis B Virus and Hepatitis C Virus Heloísa Pedrosa Mitre and João Silva de Mendonça Infectious Diseases Division of the Hospital for State Civil Servants; São Paulo, SP, Brazil If suppression of one of the viruses is achieved, there is the possibility of reactivation of the other, since the suppressor
Influenza, one of the most common infectious diseases, is a highly contagious airborne disease that occurs in seasonal epidemics and manifests as an acute febrile illness with variable degrees of systemic symptoms, ranging from mild fatigue to respiratory failure and death. Influenza causes significant loss of workdays, human suffering, and m
Certain viral infections, for example infectious mononucleosis, infectious hepatitis and HIV infection may cause severe or protracted neutropenia and pancytopenia due to direct damage of the haematopoietic precursor cells. CMV virus may affect the bone marrow microenvironment through infection of stromal cells, especially fibroblast.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks cells in the immune system. These cells, called CD4 cells, help your body fight infection. HIV infection can lead to acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is a later stage of the disease when the immune system has been severely damaged.
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is the major infectious cause of developmental disorders in babies due to its capacity to cross the placenta. HCMV is also a major pathogen in transplant recipients and HIV-AIDS patients. Despite inducing the strongest immune responses observed for any human pathogen, HCMV evades host defenses and persists for life.
Michael Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, joins "Squawk Box" to discuss the latest details about the coronavirus outbreak.

This Review explores the challenges and opportunities of taking CARs down new therapeutic roads, in terms of developing chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) for treating infectious disease
Neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection has high mortality and significant morbidity. Incidence estimates range from 1/3,000 to 1/20,000 births. HSV type 2 causes more cases than HSV type 1. HSV is usually transmitted during delivery through an infected maternal genital tract. Transplacental transmission of virus and hospital-acquired
the Suppression of CYP2C19 in Hepatitis B Virus-Associated Hepatocellular Carcinomas Xiaojing Tang, Lele Ge, Zhongjian Chen, Sisi Kong, Wenhui Liu, Yingchun Xu, Su Zeng, (CAR). Decreased CYP2C19 (HBV)infection,hepatitis C virus infection, and alcohol abuse are the main causes of HCC, and HBV infection accounts for 60% of HCC in the
Are there likely to be more potent treatments for the management of chronic hepatitis B in the future? First, how can we achieve persistent suppression of hepatitis B virus (HBV), similar to that achieved with hepatitis C infection, after withdrawal of antiviral drugs.
The clinical course of HIV-2 infection is generally characterized by a longer asymptomatic stage, lower plasma viral loads, and a lower mortality rate than HIV-1 infection. 2,3 However, without effective antiretroviral therapy (ART), HIV-2 infection will progress to AIDS and death in the majority of individuals. 4 Concomitant HIV-1 and HIV-2
