Antiviral activity of the proprietary samples

Blue-O Technology Inc has identified five proprietary samples that may have antiviral activity, either in prevention or treatment of viral infections. The intern will determine the activity range and toxicity of each proprietary samples in mammalian cells and a mouse model. Once this has been determined, each proprietary sample will be tested for its ability to prevent or treat human immunodeficiency virus, herpes simplex virus, coxsackievirus, influenza and dengue virus. Upon completion of this project the partner organization will be able to further develop and test any of the efficacious proprietary samples for clinical use.
