Title : A REVIEW ON ANTI-INFLUENZA POTENTIAL OF TRADITIONAL MEDICINAL PLANTS

Abstract :

The influenza virus causes a highly infectious, acute febrile respiratory illness that is extremely contagious. Therefore, the novel anti-influenza drugs with excellent solubility are needed to against a wide range of influenza viruses and prevent pandemic infections. Many antiviral drugs for individual treatment have been tried empirically in animals and people, and they failed. Although drug-resistant variants of human and avian influenza viruses are becoming more common, the greatest novel synthetic medicines are neuraminidase agents’ oseltamivir and zanamivir. Though there are several ways to reducing the negative effects of influenza and its subsequent problems, herbal medicines are favored due to their less adverse effects and inexpensive cost. A list of medicinal herbs with anti-influenza and other therapeutic properties and herbal medicines used to treat colds and influenza has been prepared. This study highlights anti- influenza compounds from Zingiber officinale, Camellia sinensis, Mentha arvensis, Cinnamomum burmanii, Echinacea purpurea, Phyllanthus niruri, Sambucus nigra, and Glycyrrhizae glabra, which are some of the most effective and well investigated medicinal plants. This article categorizes and describes anti-influenza medicinal herbs based on their potential mode of action.
