  Viruses are one of the main hazards for both humans and animals. They enter in the living body and redirect body’s metabolism to produce large copies of their genome and proteins. Diseases caused by these viruses are difficult to tackle with the help of currently available antiviral drugs. So the aim of this study was to explore the plants with reported antiviral activity, to get understanding for better control of these viruses. Herpes virus, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), influenza and hepatitis virus were at top among all studied viruses. Prominent modes of action against these viruses were inhibition of viral entry and its replication in host cell. Against RNA viruses plants mainly targeted their Reverse Transcriptase (RT) enzyme (like HIV) or protease (mostly found against hepatitis C virus). A range of active compounds have been identified which could be the potential antiviral agents for future drug development. Some plants like Allium sativum, Daucus maritimus, Helichrysum aureonitens, Pterocaulon sphacelatum and Quillaja saponaria emerged to have broad spectrum antiviral activity. Detail study of their phytochemicals and mode of action against these viruses could be help full for more effective control of hazardous viruses.

  Interaction with animals provide necessary companionship and helps people to live better life by reducing risk of many health problems, improved fitness and act as a source of social enjoyment. In modern society there is a substantial increase in the number of dogs adopted as pet which also raises the concerns regarding the transmission of infections from dog to their owners and vice versa. Early diagnosis of infected dogs could prevent the owners from these infections. In last decade, PCR has proven its potential applications as an important diagnostic tool but these applications are mainly limited to the diagnosis of human diseases and very little work has been done on animals. Development of PCR assays for detection of commonly found canine fungal infections (aspergillosis, blastomycosis, coccidioidomycosis and cryptococcosis) is of utmost importance in order to ensure the early and accurate diagnosis of infection. Although, a lot of research is being done on molecular diagnosis of animal infectious disease but most of these newly developed assays are either not well optimized or only suitable for laboratory studies. On the basis of reviewed literature it can be concluded that more research work is required to develop an efficient (rapid, sensitive and cost effective) PCR assays for the diagnosis of canine fungal infections.
