Attempts to develop drugs for the prevention and treatment of viral infections have faced variety of problems different firom those encoun'tered in the development of other type of antimicrobial agents. There are difficulties and consequently slow progress in the discovery of drugs which inhibit viral growth. Viruses have to strictly depend on living cells for replication. The narrow margin between the therapeutic dose of antiviral agents and lethal dose to the cells themselves is one of the major problems encountered in the development of viricidal drugs.
