Physical Point of View for Antiviral Effect Caused by the Interaction Between the Viruses and Nanoparticles
Abstract:The new mechanism of antiviral activity of nanoparticles based on the local-field interaction is proposed. Several ways of realization of the mechanism are discussed. The experimental results of antivirus therapy are presented for action of nanoparticles CeO2 and Au on herpes simplex virus (HSV) and the influenza virus A/FM/1/47 (H1N1). It was shown that the both nanoparticle preparations have the strong antiviral activities.

- Bionanoscience attempts to harness various functions of biological macromolecules and integrate them with engineering for technological applications. It is based on a bottom-up approach and encompasses structural biology, biomacromolecular engineering, material science, and engineering, extending the horizon of material science. The journal aims at publication of (i) Letters (ii) Reviews (3) Concepts (4) Rapid communications (5) Research papers (6) Book reviews (7) Conference announcements in the interface between chemistry, physics, biology, material science, and technology. The use of biological macromolecules as sensors, biomaterials, information storage devices, biomolecular arrays, molecular machines is significantly increasing. The traditional disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology are overlapping and coalescing with nanoscale science and technology. Currently research in this area is scattered in different journals and this journal seeks to bring them under a single umbrella to ensure highest quality peer-reviewed research for rapid dissemination in areas that are in the forefront of science and technology which is witnessing phenomenal and accelerated growth.
