Metabolic Profiling for Identification of Therapeutics for Treatment of Viral Infection

Comprehensive metabolomic profiling can simultaneously inform on several biological processes relevant to infection, such as inflammatory and redox markers, energetics, microbiome contribution and xenobiotic impact. These insights can lead to predictive response signatures and therapy strategies. The following case studies demonstrate how metabolomics enhances understanding of viral activity, helps to predict viral treatment and supports informed decisions on vaccine development.
