What are antivirals?
Antivirals or anti-viral pharmaceutical drugs are a group of medicines that are used to treat viral infections. Antiviral drugs fall under the classification of antimicrobials, a larger group that also includes antibiotics or what is termed as antibacterials, antifungal, and antiparasitic drugs or antiviral drugs based on monoclonal antibodies.
Unlike most of the prevailing antibiotics, antiviral medicines are not known to destroy their target pathogen; instead, they prevent its development.
They should be distinguished from virucides, which are not medications; but do deactivate or destroy viruses, either inside or outside a body. Natural virucides are produced by some plants such as eucalyptus and Australian tea trees.
How do antivirals work?
- Boost the immune system.
- Reduce the viral load or amount of active virus present in the body.
- Block receptors so that viruses do not bind to and enter healthy cells.
- Most of the antivirals target specific viruses.
- A broad-spectrum antiviral might be effective against a wide range of viruses.
