  1. 1. Design and synthesis of HIV-1 protease inhibitors

    Författare :Mathias Alterman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical chemistry; HIV-1; Protease; Inhibitors; Farmaceutisk kemi; Pharmaceutical chemistry; Farmaceutisk kemi; Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry; organisk farmaceutisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the causative agent of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The C2-symmetric HIV-1 protease is one of the prime targets for chemotherapy in the treatment of the HIV infection. Inhibition of HIV-1 protease leads to immature and non-infectious viral particles.

    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; X-ray crystallography; Drug design; HIV-1; Malaria; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Globally of today, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and malaria are two of the most threatening diseases known to mankind. The World Health Organization estimated that AIDS and malaria together claimed nearly 4 million lives in 2003 and many more were infected by the causative agent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the Plasmodium falciparum (P.

  3. 3. Antiretroviral treatment of HIV-1 in the central nervous system

    Författare :Aylin Yilmaz; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :HIV-1; cerebrospinal fluid; antiretroviral treatment; lopinavir; saquinavir; nelfinavir; neopterin; beta-2-microglobulin; HIV-1 RNA; IgG index; blood-brain barrier; albumin ratio; ultra-ultra sensitive PCR;

    Sammanfattning : HIV-1 invades the central nervous system (CNS) early in the infectious course. It establishes a chronic progressive infection, and triggers an intrathecal immune response. If left untreated, a majority of patients will develop neurological complications, caused by opportunistic pathogens or HIV-1 itself. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cyclic Sulfamide HIV-1 Protease Inhibitors : Design, Synthesis and Modelling

    Författare :Anna Ax; Anders Karlén; Anders Hallberg; Tommy Liljefors; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical chemistry; AIDS; HIV; protease inhibitor; aspartic protease; molecular modelling; 3D-QSAR; CoMFA; Farmaceutisk kemi; Pharmaceutical chemistry; Farmaceutisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : 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).

  5. 5. Structural Studies of Bacteriophage PRR1 and HIV-1 protease

    Författare :Magnus Persson; Lars Liljas; Kaspars Tars; Félix Rey; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Viruses are a diverse genera of organisms adapted to thrive in many different hosts from prokaryotic to eukaryotic.We present here the structure of bacteriophage PRR1 virus-like particle (VLP), belonging to Leviviridae family. Our structure reveals calcium ions in the VLP. LÄS MER
