Abstract

Pandemic Enveloped viruses like HIV, Influenza, Herpes viruses are a major public health problem affecting millions around the world causing morbidity and mortality. Rather than every time there is a panic due to being unprepared to deal with an emerging or emerged virus, I propose that we employ safe broad spectrum antivirals with proven capability of neutralizing a number of enveloped viruses. Along with collaborators from around the world, we have tested pomegranate juice and fulvic acid against pandemic enveloped viruses which when mixed with these viruses neutralize them. The common mechanism by which such a neutralization occurs is by interaction with the sugar moieties of the surface glycoprotein. Characterization of the enveloped virus neutralizing compounds suggest that these are heat stable small molecules less than 1000 daltons
