Several ofthese compounds exhibited potent antiviral activities against efavirenz- and nevirapine-resistant viruses, containing K103Nand/or Y181C mutations or Y188L mutation. Triazoles were first synthesized from commercially available substituted phenylthio-semicarbazides, then from isothiocyanates, and later by condensing the desired substituted anilines with thiosemicarbazones.

(NNRTIs) are key components of most current combi- nation therapies used to fight HIV-1 infectionsThree molecules that belong to this class of compounds have been approved by the American Food and Drug Admin- istration (FDA).Nevirapine was approved in 1996 and continues to be used in various regimens. Efavirenz was approved in 1998 and is considered to be the current gold standard for NNRTIs. Delavirdine, approved in 1997, is not widely used, probably due to its lack of effi- cacy and its poor pharmacokinetic properties.Because of the propensity of HIV to rapidly mutate, new agents with better activity profiles against mutant HIV-1 re- Scheme 1.

This first compound showed moderate activity against viruses carrying WT or K103N-Y181C HIV-1 RT. Compound 1 was also active in an enzymatic assay against the purified WT HIV-1 RT.A compre- hensive literature search showed that SAR compounds could be accessed through a 3-step synthesis startingfrom Scheme 2.

The presence of an ortho or para R1 substituent tuted aryls at the N-4 position of the triazole led us to improved activities against both viruses, with the biggest design a more convergent and straightforward synthesis effect being observed when R1 was in para position.

Para substituents like methyl and methyl carboxylate the reaction allowed us to synthesize many triazoles in showed similar good activity, while trifluoromethoxy and isopropyl exhibited a reduced activity.

A few We later added another efavirenz-resistant mutant virus substituted naphthylamines were commercially available to our testing panel (Y188L), and we noticed that none and were condensed directly with the thiosemicarbazone 13. The presence of two fused rings at N-4 dramatically M. De La Rosa et al. / Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett. 16 (2006) 4444–4449 improved the antiviral activities against Y188L ). While N-4 phenyl-substituted triazole compoundswere poorly active on Y188L mutants, most naphtha-lene compounds inhibited viral growth at submicromo-lar level, and compounds 16c, f, h, i, k exhibiteddouble-digit nanomolar activity on both mutant viruses.
Since the Y188L mutant virus was more resistant to ourseries of compounds than the double mutant K103N-Y181C, we decided to test our newer compounds onlyagainst WT and Y188L viruses (see Scheme 6.

Another observation was that when bearing the same R1 substituents, naphthalene com- pounds were more active than the corresponding quino- lines, as exemplified by the couples 25a–b, 30a–h, and to a lesser extent 25h–27b. Compounds 25f,h, and 30e, j exhibited single-digit nanomolar activity against the Y188L mutant, with no cytotoxicity. This was a 10-fold improvement when compared to efavirenz tested side- by-side. More interestingly, in the case of compounds Scheme 4.

This improved activityprofile against an efavirenz-resistant virus could proveextremely valuable, and warrants further studies on more efavirenz-resistant viruses.A number of im- proved compounds from this triazole scaffold are cur- rently being considered for clinical evaluation. The results of these studies will be presented at a later time.
