Antiviral interferons

What are Antiviral interferons

Natural interferons are produced by lymphocytes as part of an immunological response to viral antigens. Synthetic interferons, made by recombinant DNA technology, are used as antiviral agents to treat infections such as hepatitis and herpes zoster virus.

Interferons induce the production of enzymes in the ribosomes of the host cells and inhibit the translation of viral mRNA into viral proteins, therefore stop viral reproduction.
