2',3'-Dideoxythymidine (ddThd) and its 2',3'-unsaturated derivative 2',3'-dideoxythymidinene (ddeThd) are potent and selective inhibitors of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in vitro. When evaluated for their inhibitory effects on the cytopathogenicity of HIV in MT-4 cells, ddThd and ddeThd completely protected the cells against destruction by the virus at a concentration of 1 microM and 0.04 microM, respectively. In this aspect, ddeThd was about 5 times more potent than 2',3'-dideoxycytidine… CONTINUE READING
