Queensland COVID-19 research

  • Development of a novel antiviral agent to treat and prevent infections of SARS-CoV-2

    May 2021

    Existing antivirals have only limited efficacy against COVID-19. With the threat of immune escape variants of the SARS-CoV-2 emerging, a broad-spectrum antiviral treatment is needed. This project will adapt our patent-pending defective interfering particles (DIPs) production platform to make SARS-CoV-2 DIPs, which will be investigated for anti-SARS-CoV-2 activity in cell-based assays and in a mouse model of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
