About this Research Topic
There are only limited options against these emerging and re-emerging viruses, which call for effective vaccines and therapeutics. In particular, the broad-spectrum antivirals against a large class of viruses are urgently needed. Driven by our understanding of the mechanisms of viral pathogenesis, novel techniques have been developed and used to engineer a new generation of targeted vaccine candidates and vaccine adjuvants against emerging viruses. Also, many small molecules, peptides, and human monoclonal antibodies have been proved to be effective candidate therapeutics against emerging viruses.
In this Research Topic, we will focus on the most recent discoveries in antivirals for emerging viruses. We seek contributions of original research article as well as reviews. We encourage authors to present multi-perspective researches, including structural and functional studies of vaccines, antigens, adjuvants, antibodies, peptides, small molecules, herbal ingredients, and any innovative therapeutic strategies against emerging viruses.
Keywords: Emerging viruses, antivirals, inhibitors, vaccines, small molecules, peptides, antibody
