Viral Infections

Viral infections caused by viruses are very common, among them the common cold, influenza, rabies, measles, many forms of diarrhea, hepatitis, Dengue fever, polio, smallpox and AIDS Herpes simplex causes cold sores and genital herpes. The study of the ways by which viruses cause disease is termed as viral pathogenesis. The extent to which a virus causes disease is its virulence. When a virus enters into the host immune system, virus produces specific antibodies which bind to the virus and neutralize its infectiveness or destroy it. Presence of antibody in blood serum is used to detect whether a host has been exposed to a given virus in the past or not, with the help of tests such as ELISA. Vaccinations protect against viral diseases, by enhancing the production of antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies, specific to the virus, are used for detection, as in fluorescence microscopy. The use of viruses as gene vectors is done in the gene therapy of genetic diseases. Also in phage therapy, the use of bacteriophages to combat bacterial diseases was a great research topic before the use of antibiotics.
