Description: Pocapavir, also known as SCH-48973 and V-073, is a potent, selective, antienterovirus agent. SCH-48973 had antiviral activity (50% inhibitory concentrations [IC50s]) of 0.02 to 0.11 microg/ml, with no detectable cytotoxicity at 50 microg/ml. SCH-48973 inhibited 80% of 154 recent human enterovirus isolates at an IC50 of 0.9 microg/ml. The affinity constant (Ki) for SCH-48973 binding to poliovirus was 8.85 x 10(-8) M. SCH-48973 demonstrated efficacy in a murine poliovirus model of enterovirus disease. SCH-48973 represents a potential candidate for therapeutic intervention against enterovirus infections.
