Experienced scientists describe-in an easily-followed format-their state-of-the-art techniques for evaluating antiviral compounds. The assays described include systems for investigating drugs used against herpesviruses, hepatitis viruses, human immunodeficiency viruses, human papillomaviruses, and influenza viruses. These well-tested methods range from cellular assays to some of the most up-to-date molecular approaches for identifying compounds that are active against viral enzymes and the development of viral resistance against drugs currently in use. Timely and comprehensive, Antiviral Methods and Protocols offers today's researchers in academia, clinical departments, and the pharmaceutical industry the powerful, reproducible, and novel methods needed to evaluate compounds effective against both acute and chronic infections.

Editorial Reviews

"...will be of great benefit to all involved with antiviral development..." -Antiviral Research"...Together with some useful general discussions on safety and new approaches to antiviral research this volume offers extremely useful information for both the pharmaceutical industry and the academic researcher."-Microbiology Today"...the editors are to be congratulated for assembling an impressive array of experts in the field as authors for the chapters and the book should remain a valuable reference work for many years, despite the rapidly moving nature of the discipline." - Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy
