The discovery that proinflammatory prostaglandins are produced by cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an inducible isoform of the constitutive cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1), opened a new frontier in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, because the selective inhibition of COX-2 can lead to therapeutically effective compounds which do not have the common side effects of(More)
OBJECTIVES Quinolone derivatives have been shown to inhibit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication at the transcriptional level. Recently, a series of new 6-aminoquinolones that are endowed with more pronounced anti-HIV activities compared with the formerly reported quinolone derivatives have been published. These potent 6-aminoquinolones were(More)
Antiviral quinolones are promising compounds in the search for new therapeutically effective agents for the treatment of AIDS. To rationalize the SAR for this new interesting class of anti-HIV derivatives, we performed a 3D-QSAR study on a library of 101 6-fluoro and 6-desfluoroquinolones, taken either from the literature or synthesized by us. The(More)
