Sialoglycotherapeutics in protozoal diseases.

Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry 8(4):358 (2008) PMID 18473927

The manipulation of glycosylation, mainly sialylation, holds enormous potential for understanding the biological functions of glycoproteins and glycolipids to treat many diseases. The existing knowledge in the field of glycobiology is exploited by glycotherapeutics for combating protozoan diseases. This review focuses on the development of novel glycobiological therapeutic strategies in the field of protozoan infections.
