    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organic chemistry; organic synthesis; metathesis; HCV; NS3; protease; proline isosteres; inhibitor; aspartic protease inhibitors; hydroxyethylene; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Organic synthesis; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Organisk syntes;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the design and synthesis of compounds that areintended to inhibit serine and aspartic proteases. The first part of the text deals with preparation of inhibitors of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 serine protease. Hepatitis C is predominantly a chronic disease that afflicts about 170 million people worldwide. READ MORE

    Abstract : Many efforts have been made to control the AIDS epidemic. Extensive studies have been done on the biology, biochemistry, and structural biology of HIV in the search for antiviral drugs. The viral-encoded enzymes reverse transcriptase and protease have been main targets for drug design. READ MORE

    Abstract : Ten years ago, the first protease inhibitor targeting the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was approved for clinical use. Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), which combined protease and reverse transcriptase inhibitors, quickly became the standard therapy for treating patients infected with HIV and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

    Abstract : Structure-based drug design and combinatorial chemistry play important roles in the search for new drugs, and both these elements of medicinal chemistry were included in the present studies. This thesis outlines the synthesis of protease inhibitors against thrombin and the HCV NS3 protease, as well as the synthesis of a combinatorial library using solid phase chemistry. READ MORE

  5. 5. Peptide-Based Inhibitors of Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Serine Protease: Kinetic Aspects and Inhibitor Design

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för naturvetenskaplig biokemi

    Author : Anton Poliakov; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]

    Abstract : Hepatitis C is a serious disease that affects about 200 million people worldwide. No anti-HCV vaccine or specific anti-viral drugs are available today. Non-structural protein 3 (NS3) of HCV is a bifunctional serine protease/helicase, and the protease has become a prime target in the search for anti-HCV drugs. READ MORE
