Abstract:


Nucleosides and their analogues have been in use for many years and have become essential for treating patients with viral infections. Many additional nucleoside drugs have been approved over the past decades. This strongly demonstrates how important these compounds are and the crucial role they play. Given that a significant amount of research and literature has been documented regarding nucleoside analogues, this review article mainly focuses on nucleosides and nucleoside analogues that have proven to play a significant role in the treatment of known viral infections. This article covers the names, structures, applications, toxicity, and mode of action of relevant nucleoside analogues.

Keywords:

Antiviral drugs, applications, mode of action, nucleoside analogous, structure, toxicity, viral diseases.
