It should be remembered that when drug prophylaxis is discontinued the patient becomes susceptible to virus infection unless a subclinical infection has occurred in the first instance, giving the patient some immunity to reinfection with the same virus. An example of prophylaxis is the use of amantadine or the neuraminidase inhibitors to prevent spread of influenza A virus within families. The drugs are given to the family members who are still well, but in contact with an ill person perhaps in their own family.

This methodology has now been put to good practical use for the preparation of hepatitis B vaccine using cloned DNA expressed in yeast cells to produce HBsAg. This was a giant leap from the earlier method of purifying HBsAg from the blood of hepatitis carriers. Other strategies being investigated are the use of synthetic oligopeptides covering important epitopes on the virus or peptides masquerading as epitopes (‘mimotopes’). However, since the immunogenicity of many such preparations may fall short of the ideal, these strategies would require new and more potent adjuvants than are currently in use, as well as safe carrier molecules.

The dideoxynucleoside monophosphate is phosphorylated to the triphosphate, by cellular enzymes, and the triphosphate differentially inhibits the viral reverse transcriptase enzyme and has lesser effects on the cellular DNA polymerase. Unfortunately the phosphorylation to the active triphosphate occurs not only in virus-infected cells but also in normal cells, and this explains the side-effects of the drug. In contrast, as we have noted above, aciclovir triphosphate is only present in herpes-infected cells.
