N-Myristoylglutamic Acid Derivative of 3'-Fluoro-3'-Deoxythymidine as an Organogel.


PMID 23175585

Abstract

Designing microbicidal gels of anti-HIV drugs for local application to prevent HIV infection is a subject of major interest. 3'-Fluoro-3'-deoxythymidine (FLT), a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI), was conjugated with a N-myristoyl glutamate scaffold. The conjugate showed gelation at 1% (w/w) in different organic solvents, such as toluene, dichloromethane, and chloroform. The gels were opaque and stable at room temperature. The results indicate that myristoyl glutamate derivative of FLT can form an organogel. The gel could have potential application as a topical anti-HIV microbicidal agent.
