Even though polio is best known for causing paralysis, the disease can just be an insignificant virus in some cases. The disease seems unimportant because these people do not know they have it and the disease does not affect their everyday living. Paralytic polio is more commonly known in the United States given that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was infected by polio, and was still president (Oshinsky, 2007, p. 293). Poliovirus was first discovered in the United States in the late 1800s or the beginning of the 1900s. Polio is not very common anymore, but it is still a tragic disease to those who still deal with the sickness.
Others viruses including HIV, influenza and those that cause the common cold, are able to change enough to evade recognition by the responding antibodies as to render current vaccines useless. Anti-viral drugs search for and destroy viruses by recognizing unique components of the capsid or envelope. The herpes viruses can be somewhat controlled, but not eliminated in this manner. Infections are shorter, but the virus still lies in wait in the nerve cells to re-emerge on another day. HIV drug regimens have lengthened the life expectancy of patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus by suppressing multiplication inside the host.
