 Antiviral therapy for HIV virus: Auranofin, a drug used in the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis,  increases Heme oxygenase 2 (HO-2) expression, blocks N-myristoylation of HIV-1 Gag protein, disrupts HIV-1 budding, and restricts HIV-1 production via up regulation of its target gene, 9/August/2017, 11.46 pm

What we say: Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that:  Antiviral therapy for HIV virus: Auranofin, a drug used in the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis, […]

Natural product-derived antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: Artemisinin, isolated from Artemesia annua L, increases spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) expression, depletes spermidine and Spermine levels, and restricts Chikungunya and Zika viruses replication via up regulation of its target gene, 29/July/2017, 11.06 pm
