WHAT CAN VIRAL DRUGS DO FOR
Over the course of the last 50 years, medicine has taken
on a whole new outlook. As doctors and researchers have explored the
mechanisms of viral infections and probed the etiologies of illnesses,
their approach to fighting sickness has been more and more directed at the
root of what ails us. In many cases, it turns out to be viruses.
Every year, more and more drugs are put on the market that are geared
toward winning the battle against the raging viruses of our time. This
page is designed to be a reference carrying the primary drugs used to
treat viral infections. On the index page, these drugs are indexed in
three ways. They are grouped according to the illness which they fight
against, they are alphabetized by their brand, or generic, name, and they
are alphabetized by their active drug agent name.
Each entry relates a description of the drug, its mechanism of action,
indications, contraindications, precautions, usage, and carries a picture
if one was available. It is intended as a resource for any who are
interested in exactly how it is we are waging the war on viruses.
