We have developed standardized procedures and practices for infection of SCID-hu Thy/Liv mice with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 for the prophylactic administration of antiviral compounds and for evaluation of the antiviral effect in vivo. Endpoint analyses included quantitation of viral load by intracellular p24 enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, DNA(More)
A convenient procedure for the synthesis of 2-heterosubstituted statine derivatives as novel building blocks in HIV-protease inhibitors has been developed. The synthesis starts with protected L-phenylalaninols, which were converted to gamma-amino alpha, beta-unsaturated esters in a one-pot procedure. A highly diastereoselective epoxidation of the(More)
A series of quinazolines has been prepared and evaluated for its ability to inhibit cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase type 3, type 4A, 4B and 4D. The most potent inhibitors showed IC50 values in the nanomolar range for type 3 and type 4 isoforms and bind with high affinity to the [3H]rolipram binding site. These quinazolines represent a new family of potent(More)
Making electronic newspapers available to users is an attractive business for newspaper editors. The production of electronic newspapers may a priori be realized at low cost using the editor's news base, while enabling to attain a larger audience. However, the success of an electronic newspaper in a commercial setting depends upon the provided quality of(More)
Derivation of the 2-aminobenzylstatine containing HIV-1 proteinase (PR) inhibitor I led to a series of compounds with considerably improved antiviral activity, the most potent derivatives inhibiting HIV-1 with IC50 values below 25 nM. This was achieved by the combination of several structural modifications, most prominently by introduction of a(More)
Disease activated drugs (DAD) are pro-drugs of one active principle or combinations of two drugs, which have a proven efficacy for the treatment of the target disease. In opposition to pro-drugs, DAD are activated in inflamed but not normal tissues. Due to the disease specific activation, the amount of locally released drug(s) should be related directly to(More)
Systematic modifications of HIV protease inhibitor (2R,3S,4S)-4-[[(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-valyl]-amino]-3-hydroxy-2-[(4- methoxybenzyl)amino]-5-phenylpentanoyl)-L-valine 2-(aminomethyl)- benzimidazole amide led to a novel series of inhibitors with shortened, modified carboxy terminus. Their synthesis, in vitro enzyme inhibitory data, and antiviral activities(More)
