Origin of the inhibitory activity of 4-O-substituted sialic derivatives of human parainfluenza virus


Human parainfluenza virus (hPIV) is a serious human pathogen causing upper and lower respiratory tract disease, yet there are no effective vaccines or therapies to control parainfluenza virus infections.
