T-705, a substituted pyrazine compound, has been found to exhibit potent anti-influenza virus activity in vitro and in vivo. In a time-of-addition study, it was indicated that T-705 targeted an early to middle stage of the viral replication cycle but had no effect on the adsorption or release stage. The anti-influenza virus activity of T-705 was attenuated(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the metabolism of favipiravir (T-705, 6-fluoro-3-hydroxy-2-pyrazinecarboxamide) to its ribosylated, triphosphorylated form (T-705 RTP) in uninfected and influenza A/Duck/MN/1525/81 (H5N1) virus-infected cells. Effects of treatment on intracellular guanosine triphosphate (GTP) pools and influenza virus-inhibitory activity were also(More)
T-705 (6-fluoro-3-hydroxy-2-pyrazinecarboxamide) has a potent and selective inhibitory activity against influenza virus. We studied the effects of an infectious dose on the anti-influenza virus activities of T-705 and oseltamivir, a commercially available neuraminidase inhibitor, both in vitro and in vivo. Plaque formation of influenza A/PR/8/34 virus was(More)
