Flashcards in Lec 8-5 - Antiviral Agents Deck (12):
1

most common type of herpes

2 (std)

2

acyclovir works by stopping blank via viral thymidine kinase and viral dna polymerase

dna synthesis

3

gancyclovir works via blank which affects the virus more than the cell

UL97kinase

4

this is used if acyclovir or gancyclovir isnt working but it affects viral and dna synthesis so it has substantial toxicity to the cell

foscarnet

5

most common resistance to acyclovir is by

targeting viral thymidine kinase of the drug

6

hep b antiviral works via

hbv polymerase

7

hep b antiviral that works best

interferon alpha pegylated

8

hep c antiviral that works best and interferes with G metabolism

ribavirin

9

these are effective against influenza a and b

anti neuraminidase inhibitors

10

these are effective only against influenza a

amantadine/rimantadine

11

rsv is treated by blank

immunoglobulin (like palivizumab)

12

new antiviral agens are usually targeted against blank

specific viral products
