Hyaluronic acid is one of the enterovirus antiviral supplements and drugs listed on my post here.
The issue, though, with in vitro studies like this one is that they tell you the concentration that produces a potent antiviral effect in a cell line in vitro experiment, but the study does not tell you whether this same concentration can be obtained in vivo, in the blood and tissues, when the compound is taken orally.
If you can't obtain the same concentrations in the body, then you are not going to get any significant antiviral effect when you take the drug or supplement.
Whether you can obtain the same concentrations as were used in the in vitro study depends on factors such as the oral absorption and bioavailability of the drug or supplement. If the bioavailability is poor, then you may not be able to get high enough levels in the blood and tissues.
