Repurposing the anti-bacterial agent Ciprofloxacin as an antiviral agent: Ciprofloxacin-based antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: Ciprofloxacin (brand name: Ciloxan, Cipro, Neofloxin) increases spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) expression, depletes spermidine and Spermine levels, and restricts Chikungunya and Zika viruses replication, via upregulation of its target gene, 26/March/2019, 11.23 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Viral Populations and Pathogenesis Unit, Institut Pasteur, CNRS UMR 3569, 25–28 rue du Dr. Roux, 75724 Paris Cedex […]
