Recombinant protein for the treatment of viral diseases

Summary of the technology

This development is a recombinant protein with antiviral effect.
It comprises a new strategy in prevention and / or treatment of diseases caused by viruses, It has been proven to have antiviral effect on SARS-CoV-2.

Details of the Technology Offer

The medical improvements produced in viral therapy diseases are of less magnitude than those that have been achieved for the treatment of bacterial infections. The development of highly effective wide spectrum antiviral agents is a primary objective shared by the fields of virology and pharmacology.

Viruses are intracellular parasites that use the metabolic machinery of the infected host cell. Therefore, the development of antivirals presents a series of difficulties associated with this obligate parasitic character. It is difficult to achieve adequate antiviral activity without affecting the host cell metabolism and without causing negative effects in other non-infected cells of the organism.

Current strategies to control viral infectivity are based on the identification of agents capable of intervening in the essential steps of viral infection. Another strategy would be aimed at the modulation of the cellular defense system.

This research group has verified the antiviral effect of a recombinant protein. They suggest its use in the preparation of an antiviral treatment
