Identification of BMS-200475 as a potent and selective inhibitor of hepatitis B virus.

BMS-200475 is a novel carbocyclic 2'-deoxyguanosine analog found to possess potent and selective anti-hepatitis B virus (anti-HBV) activity. BMS-200475 is distinguished from guanosine by replacement of the natural furanose oxygen on the sugar moiety with an exo carbon-carbon double bond. In the HepG2 stably transfected cell line 2.2.15, BMS-200475 had a 50… CONTINUE READING
