The acidic polysaccharide nostoflan was previously isolated as an antiviral component from the terrestrial alga Nostoc flagelliforme. In the present study, we examined the target for its anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 action. In time-of-addition experiments, the most sensitive stage of viral replication to nostoflan was found to be early events, including the virus binding and/or penetration processes. In order to determine what extent nostoflan may be involved in these processes, virus… Expand

The study of the antiviral mode of action revealed that harmine could be associated to ACV to improve the treatment of genital herpes essentially for the immunocompromised patients, suggesting that these two compounds have a synergic effect. Expand
[Antiviral action and pathogenetic targets for seaweed sulfated polysaccharides in herpesvirus infections].
TLDR
A wide range of physiological action of sulfated polysaccharides, receptor agonists of innate and adaptive immune cells, open the possibility of their use for creation of new generation pharmacological substances and agents with associated activity for the treatment of herpesvirus infections. Expand
Current status of natural products from plants as anti-herpes simplex virus 1 agents
TLDR
Several different compounds, mainly belonging to the three groups of polysaccharides, polyphenols and terpenes, showed antiviral effects against HSV-1, indicating their potential to be promising anti-HSV- 1 agents. Expand
Antiviral activity of acidic polysaccharides from Coccomyxa gloeobotrydiformi, a green alga, against an in vitro human influenza A virus infection
TLDR
The acidic polysaccharide fraction from a green alga Coccomyxa gloeobotrydiformi was isolated and the antiviral action on an in vitro infection of influenza A virus was examined, suggested to exhibit the anti-influenza virus activity through preventing the interaction of virus and host cells.

An Indole Alkaloid from a Tribal Folklore Inhibits Immediate Early Event in HSV-2 Infected Cells with Therapeutic Efficacy in Vaginally Infected Mice
TLDR
HM can serve as a prototype to develop non-nucleotide antiviral lead targeting the viral IE transcription for the management of HSV-2 infections, according to ethnomedicinal use. Expand
Structures and anti-HSV-2 activities of neutral polysaccharides from an edible plant, Basella rubra L.
TLDR
Four neutral polysaccharides isolated from the hot water extract of the aerial part of Basella rubra L showed antiviral activity against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) with 50% inhibitory concentration of 55 μg/mL without showing the cytotoxicity up to 2300 μg/ mL. Expand

Isolation of an antiviral polysaccharide, nostoflan, from a terrestrial cyanobacterium, Nostoc flagelliforme.
TLDR
Besides anti-HSV-1 activity, nostoflan showed potent antiviral activities against HSV-2, human cytomegalovirus, and influenza A virus, but no activity against adenovirus and coxsackie virus was observed. Expand
Characterization of antiviral activity of a sesquiterpene, triptofordin C-2.

Activity of Porphyridium sp. polysaccharide against herpes simplex viruses in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
Depending on the concentration, this polysaccharide completely inhibited or slowed down the development of the cytopathic effect in HSV-infected cells, but did not show any cytotoxic effects on vero cells even when a concentration as high as 250 microg/ml was used. Expand
An antivirally active sulfated polysaccharide from Sargassum horneri (TURNER) C. AGARDH.
TLDR
Time-of-addition experiments suggested that this sulfated polysaccharide inhibited not only the initial stages of viral infection, such as attachment to and penetration into host cells, but also later replication stages after virus penetration. Expand

TLDR
Ca-SP can be a candidate agent for an anti-HIV therapeutic drug that might overcome the disadvantages observed in many sulfated polysaccharides, because it had very low anticoagulant activity, and showed a much longer half-life in the blood of mice when compared with that of DS. Expand

TLDR
A sulfated polysaccharide named naviculan was isolated from a diatom, Navicula directa, collected in deep sea water from Toyama Bay and showed antiviral activities against herpes simplex viruses type 1 and 2, and influenza A virus with selectivity indices of 270, 510 and 32. Expand
