Journal of Antivirals & Antiretroviral is one of the renowned top access journals in the field of virology. This journal is a top leading podium for gaining and exchanging knowledge about novel research done in the associated field of virology.
It is the method/process of administering a pharmaceutical compound to achieve a therapeutic effect in humans or in animals. For the treatment of human diseases, nasal and pulmonary routes of drug delivery are gaining increasing importance. These routes provide promising alternatives to parenteral drug delivery particularly for peptide and protein therapeutics. For this purpose, several drug delivery systems have been formulated and are being investigated for nasal and pulmonary delivery. These include liposomes, microspheres, gels, prodrugs, among others.
The current methods of drug delivery exhibit specific problems that scientists are attempting to address. For example, many drugsâ potencies and therapeutic effects are limited or otherwise reduced because of the partial degradation that occurs before they reach a desired target in the body. Once ingested, time-release medications deliver treatment continuously, rather than providing relief of symptoms and protection from adverse events solely when necessary. Further, injectable medications could be made less expensively and administered more easily if they could simply be dosed orally. However, this improvement cannot happen until methods are developed to safely shepherd drugs through specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, where low pH can destroy a medication, or through an area where healthy bone and tissue might be adversely affected.
