Viral infections

Antiviral agents are most active when viruses are replicating. The earlier that treatment is given, therefore, the better the result. An important difficulty is that a substantial amount of viral multiplication has often taken place before symptoms occur.

An overview of drugs that have proved effective against virus diseases appears in Table 14.1.
