Journal of antivirals & Virosomes is one among the best peer-reviewed journals in the field of virology. Articles published in this peer-reviewed journal are properly reviewed by the best faculty reviewers at the associated fields
A virosome is a drug or vaccine delivery mechanism consisting of unilamellar phospholipid membrane it may be mono- or bi-layered. Vesicle incorporating virus derived proteins to allow the virosomes to fuse with target cells.
The development of safe and effective models for the delivery of any prophylactic or therapeutic agent remains an uphill task for pharmaceutical formulation developers. Drug molecules, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, proteins and a variety of other biological and chemical entities are used for attaining pharmacological benefits. However, the major challenge remains in the delivery of these agents to the specific site of action in a time-efficient manner. Among the many drug delivery systems developed, the nano scale technology of virosomes tends to present an established system of delivering the therapeutic agents to the site of pharmacological action. Virosomes are lipid bilayer, unilamellar structures that present viral protein on their surface. They are safe, biocompatible and biodegradable structures that can achieve ideal pharmacological profile once administered into the body. Tissue targeting, immune activation and potentiation are the chief advantages that make them efficient prophylactic and therapeutic agents. The review presents the biopharmaceutical applications of virosomes and the immunological and pharmaceutical considerations that make them efficient agents for targeting spatiotemporal parameters in the body.
OMICS journals follow single-blind reviewing process, in which the reviewer is obscure to the author, but the identity of the author is known to the reviewer.An editorial board asks subject experts to review, assess and evaluate submitted articles before accepting them for publication in a scholarly journal. Submissions are evaluated using criteria such as the originality of the work, excellence, novelty and significance of the research or thoughts and respect for copy rights. Scholarly open access journals use this peer review process to ensure and maintain the quality of material they publish and for their scholastic notoriety.
By submitting research work on antiviral therapy for translation into French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese or English authors and researchers can now reach a truly global audience. With the newly launched OMICS Translation Services we assure highest precision while maintaining the exact purpose and aim of your research paper. The translation process is followed by strict review procedures in order to ensure absolute accuracy. We believe that translation services perform a key role in the emergence of a connected scholarly community. Do not hesitate and use our Translation Services to spread scientific knowledge universally.
