Chutes and Ladders is an exciting up-and-down-again game in which players race to be the first to the top of the board. Along the way, they will find ladders to help them advance, and chutes that will cause them to move backwards. The development of nucleoside analogs for clinical treatment of hepatitis C presents a similar scenario in which taking(More)
Novel 2'-fluoro-6'-methylene-carbocyclic adenosine (FMCA) monophosphate prodrug (FMCAP) was synthesized and evaluated for its in vitro anti-HBV potency against a lamivudine-entecavir resistant clone (L180M+M204V+S202G). FMCA demonstrated significant antiviral activity against wild-type as well as lamivudine-entecavir resistant triple mutant(More)
Based on the symmetrical bidentate structure of the NS5A inhibitor BMS-790052, a series of new monodentate molecules were designed. The synthesis of 36 new non-dimeric NS5A inhibitors is reported along with their ability to block HCV replication in an HCV 1b replicon system. Among them compound 5a showed picomolar range activity along with an excellent(More)
The alphaherpesvirus varicella-zoster virus (VZV) causes chickenpox and shingles. Current treatments are acyclovir (ACV) and its derivatives, foscarnet and brivudine (BVdU). Additional antiviral compounds with increased potency and specificity are needed to treat VZV, especially to treat post-herpetic neuralgia. We evaluated(More)
