Viruses are like hijackers. They permeate living, normal cells and use those cells to increase exponentially and produce other viruses like themselves. This can kill, damage, or change the cells and cause you to sick. Different viruses attack certain cells in your body like your liver, systema respiratorium, or blood.
Treatment of viral infections is quite difficult. For most viral infections, treatment can only help with symptoms it is host immune system which fight off the virus. Antibiotics do not work for viral infections. Antiviral agents are effective in treatment of viral infections. Vaccines can prevent from getting many viral diseases.

The study of viruses at the molecular level refers to molecular virology. It includes the genes analysis and gene products analysis of viruses and study of virus – host interaction (hosts can be human, plant or animal) cellular proteins interaction. There are different Molecular Methods for Viral Infections Diagnosis.

Neurovirology is the study of the viruses which infect nervous system. Viral infections of brain are way too complicated to understand due to multiple reasons. One of the main reasons is unpredictable pattern of action of viruses due to this much of the experiments carried out are based on testing the hypothesis which is a major drawback.

Viral infections of the brain are very rare than any other infections because unlike other infections brain infections depend upon the breakdown and passage through the blood brain barrier which is very difficult and occurs very rarely. Viruses cause neurological problems through a number of mechanisms like causing cell lysis, inducing apoptosis or by creating secondary damage due to release of glutamate. Viruses such as rabies do not kill neurons but they alter cellular transcriptional pathways to express viral genes rather than neuronal genes, these results in neurons that no longer function as neurons, but look normal upon routine pathological examination making it difficult for the pathologist to identify the virus.

  • Track 3-4Tools Used for Diagnosing Neuroviral Infections
There are certain diseases that are infections and caused by viruses which have been recently appeared or those whose incidence or geographic range is exponentially increasing or threatens to increase in the near future. Emerging infections can be caused by either Previously undetected or unknown infectious agents.
  • Track 4-1Coronavirus
  • Track 4-2Ebola virus
  • Track 4-3HIV
The  plant virus diseases are concern with  the cyclical development of virus diseases within plant populations in particular time and space. Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is ssRNA (+) virus that infects a wide range of plants, especially tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. In the life cycle  of viruses, viral entry is the emergent stage of infection, as the virus invades into the host cell and intrudes viral material into the cell.

Clinical Virology comes under viral methodology. It deals with clinical aspects of virus-induced clinical conditions. It involves the study of resistance of viruses in treatment, antiviral by viral genome sequencing, viral pathogenesis and viral immunology. It generally deals with cell cultures, serological, biochemical and molecular studies. It has great importance in knowing the epidemiology and spreading of viral diseases. Multiple methods are in use for laboratory diagnosis in probing the viral infections, including serology, viral culture, antigen detection, and nucleic acid detection. Most of the methods used to detect any probable viral infection or differentiate among different pathogens. This field provides specific recommendations for diagnostic approach to clinically important viral infections.

  • Track 6-1Modes of Transmission
  • Track 6-2Effective Treatment Strategies

Viral vaccines are prepared by using the weakened (attenuated) form of virus. Although vaccines have proven pivotal against arrays of infectious viral diseases, there are still no effective vaccines against many viruses. New structural insights into the viral envelope, protein conformation, and antigenic epitopes can guide the planning of novel vaccines against challenging viruses. Recent studies demonstrated that applications of this structural information can solve a number of the vaccine conundrums. recent advances in structure-based vaccine design, or structural vaccinology, for novel and innovative viral vaccine design and information can solve some of the vaccine conundrums.

 

  • Track 7-1Live attenuated
  • Track 7-2Inactivated vaccines

The most common viral infections are the respiratory tract infections.it include infections are with the infection of sinuses, throat, lungs.The respiratory tract infections (RTI) are generally two subdivisions as Upper Respiratory tract infections (URTI) and Lower Respiratory tract infections (LRTI).The viruses which are associated with respiratory disorders these are adenovirus, Para influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, coronavirus, Coxsackie virus, human metapneumovirus.

 

  • Track 8-1Respiratory tract infections
  • Track 8-2human metapneumovirus.
  • Track 8-3Coxsackie virus

Viruses generally have specific host cells which they infect. Some virus types are associated with specific cancers and can convert normal cells into cancer cells. Such viruses that causes cancer are termed as oncovirus.

 

  • Track 9-1oncogenic viruses
  • Track 9-2papillomavirus-cervical cancer,
  • Track 9-3Infections
  • Track 9-4hepatitis virus-liver cancer

The oncolytic virology is the study of virus that infects and kills cancer cells. They release new infectious virus particles  to help destroy a remaining tumor cells as the infected cancer cells are destroyed by oncolysis virus An oncolytic virus is a virus that preferentially infects and kills cancer cells.  infected cancer cells are destroyed by oncolysis, they release new infectious virus particles help to destroy the remaining tumour.

  • Track 10-2 infected cancer cells
  • Track 10-3 infects and kills cancer cells

Clinical trials have indicated that oncoviruses might be developed as safe and effective anticancer agents. No​vel strategies can be used to facilitate viral evasion of the immune system, the prevention of viral uptake by the liver, and an increased specificity for tumour cells, either at the cell surface or through intracellular restriction.

  • Track 11-2Understanding human carcinogenesis by using tumor viruses as experimental tools
  • Track 11-3Defense against the use of viruses in bioterrorism

Drug resistance is reduced susceptibility to a drug in a laboratory culture system which  is determined by specific mutations in the viral genome that leads to alterations in the viral target protein (for example, HIV reverse transcriptase) or the viral drug activator. 

  • Track 12-1The problem of viral drug resistance
  • Track 12-2Potential methods to overcome this

Conversion of  viruses into therapeutic agents by reprogramming viruses to treat diseases by using biotechnology are termed as virotherapy.

virotherapy  includes three main branches :

 

  • Track 13-1Anti-cancer oncolytic viruses,
  • Track 13-2Viral vectors for gene therapy
  • Track 13-3Viral immunotherapy.

Viruses and viral diseases have been at the centers of science, agriculture, and medicine for millennia, and some of our greatest challenges and triumphs have involved virology. Use of virology for welfare of mankind is the main essence.

Vaccines have been among the most effective health approach for protecting the individual against viral disease, with two of worlds successful vaccine being against small pox and poliovirus. A viral vaccine is a combination of inactivated viruses and activated viruses. Inactivated or killed viral vaccines contain viruses, they do not have ability to replicate and to bring about a response it contains an antigen. Activated or live vaccines contain the live form of the virus. Currently, Virus like particles organizes a new vaccine concept. Such particles consist of self-assembled structural proteins from the virus which can elicit an immune response but as they lack the genetic material from the virus are safer vaccines

Recently many researches and experiments are going on antiviral agents and their developed to act against the viruses and to prevent viral diseases. Naturally most of the antivirals are used for specific viral infections, where a broad-spectrum antiviral is effective against a wide range of viruses. Some antibiotics, antiviral drugs do not destroy their target pathogen instead they inhibit their development. Sometime antiviral drugs may be toxic to human cells and viruses can also develop resistance to antiviral drugs. Some other antiviral drugs strengthen the immune response to the viral infection.
