The HCV virus genome was detected in the myocardium of one patient as well as in the liver in three out of seven(More)
To identify new orally active inhibitors, further modification of 1 (ONO-6818) was performed. Peptidic derivatives 4b, 4c and 4n showed more potent inhibitory activity than nonpeptidic derivatives 3a-c. As a result, a series of peptidic inhibitors, 4a-s and 5a-v, were discovered. Among these N-aryl derivatives 5a-g, 5i, 5m and 5o-v showed oral activity.(More)
