Pharmacophoresthree-dimensional (3D) arrangements of essential features enabling a molecule to exert a particular biological effectconstitute a very useful tool in drug design both in hit discovery and hit-to-lead optimization process. Two basic approaches for pharmacophoric model generation can be used by chemists, depending on the availability or not of(More)
Targeting cellular cofactors instead of viral enzymes represents a new strategy to combat infectious diseases, which should help to overcome the problem of viral resistance. Recently, it has been revealed that the cellular ATPase/RNA helicase X-linked DEAD-box polypeptide 3 (DDX3) is an essential host factor for the replication of several viruses such as(More)
Abl kinase inhibitors targeting the ATP binding pocket are currently used as a front-line therapy for the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), but their use has significant limitation because of the development of drug resistance (especially due to the T315I mutation). Two compounds (GNF-2 and BO1) have been found able to inhibit the Abl(More)

Posters have become an essential tool for dissemination of study findings at medical meetings. By presenting a quick snapshot, posters can be an effective means of communicating the main findings of the research quickly and of stimulating rewarding exchanges with the people in attendance. Success depends on catching and holding the attention of passing(More)
