The research described in this thesis concerns the antiviral activity of constituents found in a pomegranate rind extract, PRE, from the husk of the fruit of Punica granatum L., as has been described by Stewart et al., (1998). To investigate the mode of action, to identify the active molecule responsible for the activity and to establish a bioassay that can be used to test for antiviral activity of plant extracts were the main points of concern.
