Development of Antivirals
Antivirals have been developed to act against the viruses. Most antivirals are used for specific viral infections, while a broad-spectrum antiviral is effective against a wide range of viruses. Unlike most antibiotics, antiviral drugs do not destroy their target pathogen instead they inhibit their development. Antiviral drugs can be toxic to human cells. Also, viruses can develop resistance to antiviral drugs. Other antiviral drugs strengthen the immune response to the viral infection.
