HCV NS5B RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (NS5B) is essential for viral replication and is therefore considered a target for antiviral drug development. From our ongoing screening effort in the search for new anti-HCV agents, a novel inhibitor 1 with low microM activity against the HCV NS5B polymerase was identified. SAR analysis indicated the optimal(More)
We have developed a novel class of 2-phosphonate 1,3-dioxolane nucleotide analogues, from which the guanine derivative displayed weak anti-HCMV activity. Further SAR studies led to the identification of both cis and trans guanine derivatives of tetrahydrofuran analogues as potent anti-HCMV agents, both in vitro and in vivo, compared to ganciclovir and HPMPC.
We have recently described the discovery of new leads in the area of anti-HCMV research. Further structure-activity relationship studies have allowed us to identify potent and selective anti-HCMV nucleotide analogs. The synthesis as well as structure-activity relationship studies are described.
Following the identification of first pass metabolism issues with our recently described anti-HCMV compounds, the naphthyridines and isoquinolines, we have designed a class of novel metabolically stable and orally bioavailable anti-HCMV agents, the dihydroisoquinolines.
The HCV NS5B RNA dependent RNA polymerase plays an essential role in viral replication. The discovery of a novel class of inhibitors based on an N,N-disubstituted phenylalanine scaffold and structure-activity relationships studies to improve potency are described.
