Potential New Anti-Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Compounds Depress Virus Replication in Cultured Human Macrophages

Ewart, Gary; Nasr, Najla; Naif, Hassan; Cox, Graeme; Cunningham, Anthony; Gage, Peter


We report that the amiloride analogues 5-(N,N-hexamethylene)amiloride and 5-(N,N-dimethyl)amiloride inhibit, at micromolar concentrations, the replication of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in cultured human blood monocyte-derived macrophages. These compounds also inhibit the in vitro activities of the HIV-1 Vpu protein and might represent lead compounds for a new class of anti-HIV-1 drugs.
