Degradation of 3'-azido-3'-deoxy-5'-O-isonicotinoylthymidine (AZT-Iso), an antiretroviral derivative of zidovudine, was investigated in buffer pH 7.4, mu = 300 mOsm at 37, 50 and 60 degrees C, and in water (pH 6.6, 37 degrees C), giving zidovudine (AZT) and isonicotinic acid (INA) as products. The rate constants were determined by reversed-phase HPLC(More)
Synthesis, solid state characterization and anti HIV-1 activity of 3'-azido-3'-deoxy-5'-O-isonicotinoylthymidine (2), a new prodrug of zidovudine (AZT, 1), are described. Two solid forms of 2 prepared by crystallization from ethyl acetate-petroleum ether (form alpha) and from a melt sample of form alpha (amorphous form) were characterized by X-ray(More)
Conformational properties of three novel zidovudine analogs, namely 3'-azido-3'-deoxy-5'-O-isonicotinoylthymidine (AZT-Iso, 2), (-)-trans-(5S,6S)-5-bromo-6, 5'-epoxy-5,6-dihydro-3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (3) and (+)-trans-(5R,6R)-5-bromo-6,5'-epoxy-5,6-dihydro-3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (4), have been investigated by AM1 calculations and NMR studies, and(More)
A novel cyclic bromine zidovudine analog, (-)-trans-(5S,6S)-5-bromo-6,5'- epoxy-5,6-dihydro-3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (2), and its diastereoisomer (+)-trans-(5R,6R)-(3) were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic methods, obtaining 3 in very low yields. The major product 2 presents a selectivity index (CCID50/IC50) similar to zidovudine but 55.5(More)
