Tests in mice showed Fludase, made by privately held NexBio, could stop parainfluenza viruses from replicating, the researchers reported in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

Parainfluenza viruses are not closely related to flu but belong to another family of viruses called paramyxoviruses. They cause most cases of croup and can cause pneumonia and bronchiolitis - an inflammation of the small air passages in the lungs.

Parainfluenza uses the same receptors - molecular doorways - to infect cells as flu does. Fludase inactivates these receptors.
