Antiviral Drug Discovery for Emerging Diseases and Bioterrorism Threats
by Paul F. Torrence

Antiviral Drug Discovery for Emerging Diseases and Bioterrorism Threats presents a cutting-edge view of how chemical concepts are being mobilized to develop novel approaches to effectively defend against emerging diseases and biowarfare.

Among some of the topics discussed are smallpox, the Ebola virus, influenza, SARS, arenaviruses and flaviviruses; each chapter discusses hypothetical strategies for the discovery of relevant antiviral agents, recent findings related to biochemistry or drug discovery, and advances in the further development of established leads in the area.

Timely and informative, Antiviral Drug Discovery for Emerging Diseases and Bioterrorism Threats clearly illuminates the efforts being made to develop new and effective broad-spectrum antiviral agents.
