Abstract

The antiviral study of 21 Chinese medicinal herbs was carried out in vitro and in vivo. The extracts of phyllanthus urinarin and polygonum cuspidatum exhibite obvious effects on duck hepatitis B virus and human hepatitis B virus, while the extract of Eclipta alba showed limited inhibition on HBV DAN polymerase.
