Antiviral effect of the heparan sulfate mimetic, PI-88, against dengue and encephalitic flaviviruses

Lee, Eva; Pavy, Megan; Young, Nicolie; Freeman, Craig; Lobigs, Mario


Many viruses, including flaviviruses, display affinity for cell surface heparan sulfate (HS) proteoglycans with biological relevance in virus attachment/entry. This raises the possibility of the application of HS mimetics in antiviral therapy. We have evaluated the antiviral effect of the sulfated polysaccharides, suramin, pentosan polysulfate (PPS) and PI-88, which are currently approved or in trial for clinical use, against dengue virus (DEN) and the encephalitic flaviviruses, Japanese...[Show more]
