Example text

Importantly, the ability of this virus to subvert innate immune responses, and hence both their direct antiviral effects and their role in triggering of virus-specific immune responses, presents a factor potentially alterable by antiviral therapy. In particular, in the light of data indicating the ability of the NS3A/4 protease to interrupt IFN signaling, the development of protease inhibitors has aroused much interest as to whether successful blockade of this viral protein will not only directly inhibit viral replication, but also enhance this pathway, thus potentially enhancing both the innate immune response and potentiating adaptive immune responses [19].
