Discusses how to address the need for fighting Ebola, Zika, and other human viruses by building on the successes in antiviral therapy of the past decade 

Written by leading medicinal chemists from academia and industry, this book discusses the entire field of antiviral drug discovery and development from a medicinal chemistry perspective, focusing on antiviral drugs, targets, and viral disease mechanisms. It provides an outlook on emerging pathogens such as Ebola, Zika, West Nile, Lassa, and Norovirus, and includes a chapter on the current Coronoavirus pandemic.  

New Developments in Antiviral Drugs describes the discovery and development process for different classes of viruses and targets based on the experiences from the nine human viruses for which approved drugs are on the market (HIV, HCV, Influenza, RSV, HBV, HPV, HCMV, HSV, and VZV). It covers the properties and development potential of 20 classes of currently approved antivirals, including combination drugs, and looks at novel antiviral strategies against emerging viruses. 

Covers the entire field of antiviral drug discovery and development   Addresses the need for antiviral drugs to combat major health threats such as Ebola, Zika, West Nile, and COVID-19   Summarizes the successes of the past 15 years in developing ground-breaking medicines against 9 major human viruses, both from the medicinal chemistry and the pharmacological angle  Discusses practical and strategic challenges in the drug discovery and development process, including screening technologies, latency, and toxicity issues 

New Developments in Antiviral Drugs is an important book for medicinal chemists, pharmaceutical chemists, virologists, and epidemiologists, and will be of great interest to those in the pharmaceutical industry and public health agencies.
