The Antiviral Activity of Chitosan (Review)

  • S. N. Chirkov
Article

Abstract

Data on the inhibitory effect of chitosan on viral infections in animals, plants, and microorganisms are reviewed. The effects of the physicochemical parameters and structure of chitosan on its antiviral activity are analyzed. Possible mechanisms of the inhibitory effect of chitosan on viral infections are discussed.
