4-anilino quinazolines have been identified as inhibitors of HCV replication. The target of this class of compounds was proposed to be the viral protein NS5A, although unequivocal proof has never been presented. A 4-anilino quinazoline moiety is often found in kinase inhibitors, leading us to formulate the hypothesis that the anti-HCV activity displayed by(More)
The identification of the bacterial endotoxin receptors for innate immunity, most notably the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), has sparked great interest in therapeutic manipulation of innate immune system. We have recently developed synthetic molecules that have been shown to inhibit TLR4 activation in vitro and in vivo. Here we present the synthesis and the(More)
