Abstract

Significant progress has been made in the treatment of viral infections in children, particularly those caused by HSV, varicella-zoster virus and cytomegalovirus. While not discussed in this review, licensed therapies are available for influenza infection in children as well. However, and notably so, numerous viral diseases of children represent unmet medical needs and warrant dedicated drug discovery efforts, including hepatitis B and C, and respiratory syncytial virus, among others.
