The highly pathogenic influenza virus has caused many human fatalities and poses an increasing pandemic threat. Neuraminidase inhibitors such as oseltamivir and zanamivir have been widely used in the treatment and have gained remarkable success. Although, they are effective in prevention of influenza; the concern for drug resistance still remains a(More)
The availability of the crystal structure of falcipain-3, knowledge of the peptides carrying the 7-aminocoumarin moiety as falcipain-3 ligands/substrates, and a need for new antimalarial agents stimulated us to look at the possibility of finding some novel falcipain-3 inhibitors. In this paper, we report the effect of substitution at the 7-amino position of(More)
OBJECTIVE From its first instance in 1977, resistance to amantadine, a matrix (M2) inhibitor has been increasing among influenza A/H3N2, thus propelling the use of oseltamivir, a neuraminidase (NA) inhibitor as a next line drug. Information on drug susceptibility to amantadine and neuraminidase inhibitors for influenza A/H3N2 viruses in India is limited(More)
BACKGROUND With cases of emergence of drug resistance to the current competitive inhibitors of neuraminidase (NA) such as oseltamivir and zanamavir, there is a present need for an alternative approach in the treatment of avian influenza. With this in view, some flavones and chalcones were designed based on quercetin, the most active naturally occurring(More)
