  author={Hamida B. Qavi},
HSV-1 is the leading transmittable cause of blindness in the United State and the developed countries of the world. HSV-1 establishes lifelong latency in the TG and is associated with high morbidity and mortality in humans worldwide. Currently, there is no method available to eliminate latent HSV-1 from an infected individual. Several FDA approved anti-HSV-1 drugs, such as Acyclovir, Valancyclovir, Famcyclovir and Pencyclovir are available for treatment. However, widespread use of these…
