Journal of antivirals & antiretrovirals is one of the best open access journals in the field of virology. The open access policy of the journals mainly aims at increasing the visibility and accessibility of the published quality work and thus providing the desirable researches to the readers.
Viruses cannot exist without the support (host) and for survival they need to spread to another host. This is because the original host may either die or eliminate the infection. There are several viruses that have an animal or plant reservoir from where they affect humans. Bodyâs first line of defense against viruses is innate immune system which is made up of cells and other mechanisms that defend the host from infection. This provides a temporary protection against the viral onslaught. During adaptive immunity the faces the virus and remembers it. This is a more permanent form of immunity that may last a life time against the particular strain of virus. Specific antibodies are produced against the virus. One main reason for the study of viruses is the fact that they cause many infectious diseases, among them the common cold, influenza, rabies, measles, many forms of diarrhea, hepatitis, yellow fever, polio, smallpox and AIDS. Some viruses, known as oncoviruses, contribute to certain forms of cancer. The best studied example is the association between Human papillomavirus and cervical cancer. It is now acknowledged that almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by certain strains of this sexually transmitted virus.
