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.
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.
OMICS Group offers an opportunity and a forum of Open Access Scholarly Published Articles (OASPA) for bringing together all the scientific communities of Open Access journal publishers. The main mission is to expose, spread the areas of Open Access (OA) journals and book publishers globally in all Fields such as environmental, Life sciences, clinical, technical, engineering models and scholarly disciplines. The goal to spread knowledge via exchanging information from subject to subject, easy access through information technologies, setting standards, Innovative models, and promoting innovation.
