Series: Virology Research Progress
BISAC: SCI099000

Viral infection is a disease caused by microorganisms, which invade a living cell and use its mechanisms to reproduce. Viruses need to colonize a host organism in order to fulfill its vital functions because it lacks the biochemical organizations that replication requires. This book discusses several topics that include viral infections in obstetrics and gynecology; the management of HIV infection by Chinese medicine; antiviral activity of lactoferrin; and antiviral effects of phytochemicals of the Mediterranean medicinal plants.
