Preclinical Profile and Characterization of the Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease Inhibitor Asunaprevir (BMS-650032)
ABSTRACT Asunaprevir (ASV; BMS-650032) is a hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease inhibitor that has demonstrated efficacy in patients chronically infected with HCV genotype 1 when combined with alfaExpand
Preclinical Pharmacokinetics and In Vitro Metabolism of Asunaprevir (BMS-650032), a Potent Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease Inhibitor.
The need for an interferon free treatment combined with ASV's initial clinical trial data support development of ASV as part of a fixed dose combination for the treatment of patients chronically infected with HCV genotype 1. Expand
The discovery of asunaprevir (BMS-650032), an orally efficacious NS3 protease inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus infection.
The structure-activity relationships (SARs) developed with respect to CV effects established that small structural changes to the P2* subsite of the molecule had a significant impact on the CV profile of a given compound. Expand
Ligand-enabled β-C-H arylation of α-amino acids using a simple and practical auxiliary.
A pyridine-type ligand is developed that overcomes this limitation of the N-methoxyamide auxiliary, leading to a significant improvement of β-arylation of carboxylic acid derivatives, especially α-amino acids. Expand
Discovery and early clinical evaluation of BMS-605339, a potent and orally efficacious tripeptidic acylsulfonamide NS3 protease inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus infection.
A methoxy moiety at the C6 position of this isoquinoline ring system proved to be optimal with respect to potency and PK, thus providing the clinical compound 35, which demonstrated antiviral activity in HCV-infected patients. Expand
Single- and Multiple-Ascending-Dose Studies of the NS3 Protease Inhibitor Asunaprevir in Subjects with or without Chronic Hepatitis C
The novel NS3 protease inhibitor asunaprevir, when administered at single or multiple doses of 200 to 600 mg twice daily, is generally well tolerated, achieving rapid and substantial decreases in HCV RNA levels in subjects chronically infected with genotype 1 HCV. Expand
Mitsunobu reactions of n-alkyl and n-acyl sulfonamides-an efficient route to protected amines
Abstract N-Methyl p-toluenesulfonamide and N-BOC p-toluenesulfonamide can be directly coupled with primary and secondary alcohols under Mitsunobu conditions to afford various sulfonamide-protectedExpand
Peptide Macrocyclization Inspired by Non-Ribosomal Imine Natural Products
Structural interrogation of the linear and macrocyclic peptides using variable-temperature NMR and circular dichroism suggests that preorganization of linear substrates is not a prerequisite for macrocyclization. Expand
Identification of a potent and selective 5-HT(6) antagonist: one-step synthesis of (E)-3-(benzenesulfonyl)-2- (methylsulfanyl)pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-ylidenamine from
(E)-3-(Benzenesulfonyl)-2-(methylsulfanyl)pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-ylidenamine (7) was found to be a potent and selective 5-HT(6) antagonist. A one-step synthesis of this compound is described.
