Control of Viral Diseases in Humans

 It has been my observation over the years that there are no really 
effective treatments for a viral infection itself . While there are 
drugs to treat the symptoms of the disease , the drugs to combat the 
infectious agent itself are experimental , and to a large degree 
ineffective . It seems that our knowledge of the viral life cycle is 
still too vague at this point to really find a effective way to combat 
them .The best defense for an infection is still the good old fashioned 
immune response .
