Abstract

Chemokines are crucial effector molecules involved in orchestrating the host inflammatory response against invading pathogens. Viruses have devised several strategies for exploiting or neutralizing chemokines or their receptors to further their own propagation or elude host defenses. Insight into strategies used by viruses to modulate chemokines might help generate novel approaches for treating viral diseases and chemokine-mediated inflammatory disorders.
