Title: MULTIVALENT LIPOSOME FORMULATIONS. UMMS13-28; Patent 9,408,890.  

  • The present technology relates to the treatment or prevention of infection, by administration of a liposome composition linked to binding targets. The compositions typically bind the virus (or virions), e.g., influenza, or bacteria, e.g., Streptococcus pneumonia, with high affinity to reduce or prevent infectivity. The technology is used to reduce or prevent the effects of a toxin, e.g., ricin, with high affinity to reduce or prevent toxin entry into a cell. Further, this invention discloses sulfated polysaccharides and sulfated polysaccharide compositions, which can prevent or treat viral infection, specifically respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
