Cyclodextrins as antivirals? Why not?

Caroline Tapparel Vu,聽Francesco Stellacci聽and colleagues from聽EPFL聽and聽University of Geneva聽created a groundbreaking molecule, CD-SA, that mimics flu virus receptors to fight off multiple influenza strains effectively! 馃馃挜 Our studies show CD-SA outperforms existing treatments like Oseltamivir, offering a new hope against flu with fewer chances of resistance when coupled with IFN 位1. Exciting results from lab to mice models prove its potent antiviral powers! 馃殌馃敩
