Indian culinary spices are used for their medicinal properties since ancient times and play an important role even in today’s traditional medicine systems. The pharmaceutical value of spices is being established through various studies and patents. The antiviral activities of spices are well known. Influenza is a seasonal problem and also a pandemic infection. In the current scenario, there is a need to explore new targets as well as new drugs to combat influenza infection. This study aimed to identify the antiviral activity of spices against influenza targets using the bioinformatics approach. The study predicted the efficiency of curcumin derivatives in targeting multiple influenza targets, which can be further used in anti-influenza treatment.
