Abstract

Resveratrol is a natural compound produced by certain plants on various stimuli. In recent years, extensive research on resveratrol has been carried out, demonstrating its capacity to prevent a wide variety of conditions, including cardiovascular diseases and cancer, and to control fungal, bacterial and viral infections. In the present review, we summarize the current knowledge of the activity of resveratrol against viral infection and describe the possible molecular pathways through which resveratrol exerts its antiviral activity.
