  1. Small Molecule Inhibitors of HIV1 Nef Virulence Factor for Treatment of HIV_AIDS

    SBC: Fox Chase Chemical Diversity Center, Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION: While HIV/AIDS can be managed with antiretroviral drugs that block viral replication, these agents do not clear the virus and require life-long drug administration with associated risks of cumulative toxicity and drug resistance. Recently, wediscovered a completely new class of compounds that interfere with the HIV-1 virulence factor, Nef. This viral protein is critical to HIV-1 repli ...

  2. Small Molecule Antagonists of PF4 for the Treatment and Prevention of HIT

    SBC: Fox Chase Chemical Diversity Center, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    We have discovered the first-ever inhibitors of PF4, a platelet protein central to the pathophysiology of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). Heparin is a naturally-occurring anticoagulant that prevents the formation of clots and extension of existingclots within the vasculature, and major medical applications of heparin include dialysis, cardiac catheterization, and cardiopulmonary bypass sur ...
