Rebetol- useful in treating many viral infections
They do say that if there is anything that is capable of wiping out the human race, then those are viruses. We have been witnesses to many viral infections that are among the most dangerous quirks of nature that we have encountered. We have experienced the HIV pandemic that once threatened to consume the world and we have since been exposed to viruses that make HIV look like chicken pox. However, most viral infections, at least the ones we have encountered so far can be treated by some kind of medication that has been developed with this purpose in mind. Rebetol is one such medication, an anti-viral drug that is used in treating different viral infections, most commonly severe RSV infections and hepatitis C. RSV infections are viral infections that affect the pulmonary system and in extreme cases these infections can be quite dangerous. Rebetol is used for treatment of the most severe form of these infections. Hepatitis C is a viral infection that affects the liver and that can lead to complications and developments that can be life-threatening, such as cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer which is one of the cancers which is most resilient to chemotherapy. The biggest problem with hepatitis C is that in early stages it is practically impossible to diagnose as there are no symptoms that can be observed. Also, unlike for hepatitis B, there is no vaccine against hepatitis C. Rebetol is one of the medications that is most commonly used in cases of hepatitis C, usually in conjunction with some other medications. In addition to these, Rebetol is also sometimes used for treating such viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Lassa fever, Hantavirus infection, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever and influenza.
