Nucleoside analogues have long been recognized as prospects for the discovery of direct acting antivirals (DAAs) to treat hepatitis C virus because they have generally exhibited cross-genotype activity and a high barrier to resistance. C-Nucleosides have the potential for improved metabolism and pharmacokinetic properties over their N-nucleoside(More)
Previous investigations identified 2'-C-Me-branched ribo-C-nucleoside adenosine analogues, 1, which contains a pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazin-4-amine heterocyclic base, and 2, which contains an imidazo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazin-4-amine heterocyclic base as two compounds with promising anti-HCV in vitro activity. This Letter describes the synthesis and evaluation(More)
