Integrase is one of three enzymes expressed by HIV and represents a validated target for therapy. Previous reports have demonstrated that the diketoacid-based chemotype is a useful starting point for the design of inhibitors of this enzyme. In this study, one of the ketone groups is replaced by a benzylamide resulting in a new potent chemotype. A(More)
Integrase is one of three enzymes expressed by HIV and represents a validated target for therapy. A previous study of the diketoacid-based chemotype suggested that there are two aryl-binding domains on integrase. In this study, modifications to the indole-based diketoacid chemotype are explored. It is demonstrated that the indole group can be replaced with(More)
A series of potent inhibitors of P-selectin as potential anti-inflammatory agents is reported. These compounds are derivatives of galactocerebrosides bearing a malonate side chain in positions 2 and 3 of the galactose moiety. Based on the binding mode of sialyl Lewis X, the two acidic groups of the malonate are designed to form ionic interactions with two(More)
The optimization of a novel series of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI) led to the identification of pyridone 36. In cell cultures, this new NNRTI shows a superior potency profile against a range of wild type and clinically relevant, resistant mutant HIV viruses. The overall favorable preclinical pharmacokinetic profile of 36 led to(More)
