Pegylated interferon alpha-2, alone or in combination with ribavirin, has become the standard therapy for patients with chronic hepatitis C infection. Pegylation of interferon alpha-2 results in a substantially extended half-life that permits once-weekly dosing, because of reduced clearance and...
Antiviral therapy of chronic HBV infection remains a clinical challenge. Once this infection has been-established, the viral genome persists for life, either as an integrated genome or as episomal covalently closed circular DNA (cccDNA). The latter is the source of renewed viral replication in...
A series of novel acyclic nucleoside analogues containing bis-(hydroxymethyl)phosphinic acid (BHPA) or tris(hydroxymethyl)phosphine oxide (THPO) coupled with DNA nucleobases or with 5-fluorouracil were prepared and their antiviral activity was studied against cytomegalovirus (CMV),...
We have recently reported that 2′,3'dideoxy analogues of our exquisitely potent anti-VZV furanopyrimidine deoxynucleosides are shifted to selective anti-HCMV agents. We now find that the fully deoxygenated 2′,3′,5′-trideoxy analogue is fully antivirally active. This is taken as proof that these...
Bicyclic furanopyrimidine nucleoside analogues (BCNAs) have been previously reported as potent and selective anti-varicella-zoster virus (VZV) agents. Few modifications on the sugar moiety have been considered so far but some of them have shown interesting activity against human cytomegalovirus...
