The current pandemic has highlighted the need for new antiviral therapies, to respond to existing and emerging diseases transmitted by viral vectors. We developed a novel antiviral approach that is based on neutralizing viruses by trapping and encapsulation in artificial nano-shells. The surrounding shells prevent the interaction of viruses with host cells and thus interrupt an essential step in the lifecycle of most viruses.
