Human health has a significant importance and it is directly affected by a number of factors like different diseases including microbial and viral infections. Up till now we have paid attention to the disease causing viruses and pathogens and less has been investigated about the usefulness of normal viral flora. One such orphan virus is Torque Teno Virus (TTV). The virus is present in healthy as well as diseased population, indicating its high prevalence. The virus is ubiquitous to human body as it is present in almost all tissues and organs and this is the property that can be utilized for targeted drug delivery. Another potentially useful property of this virus is TTV derived Apoptosis Inducing protein that can be a hope for the affectees.
