  • Publication number: 20230059521
    Abstract: Described herein are compositions for treating or preventing a viral infection comprising bacteriophages that bind to the virus and block or inhibit viral entry into a host cell. Bacteriophage libraries may be screened to identify bacteriophages that bind to a virus of interest, and the identified bacteriophages may be used to treat or prevent an infection caused by the virus of interest. Also described herein are methods of treating or preventing a viral infection by administering a bacteriophage composition to a subject in vivo or to a surface in vitro. The bacteriophages in the composition may bind to the virus and inhibit viral entry into a host cell, thereby reducing the infectivity of the virus. Reducing the infectivity of the virus may treat or prevent the viral infection.

  • Publication number: 20160206749
    Abstract: Cholesterol moieties are linked to specific ends of double-stranded RNA, preferably a small, interfering (si)RNA or to a dsHybrid. The dsHybrid has one strand comprised of DNA and one strand comprised of RNA. Preferably the sense strand is the DNA strand and the antisense strand is the RNA strand of the dsHybrid. The present invention is based upon the discovery that a cholesterol moiety, if linked to a specific end or ends of the sense or antisense strands of a siRNA, can enhance the delivery and silencing efficiency of the siRNA directed against its target message, in comparison with a corresponding, non-conjugated siRNA. Conjugated siRNAs and dsHybrids of the invention are optionally formulated with, or coordinately administered with, a secondary delivery-enhancing agent, such as a delivery-enhancing peptide, to enhance intracellular delivery and uptake of the conjugated siRNAs or dsHybrid.
