Darunavir for the Treatment of SARS-CoV-2
With a solid pharmacological background, deep experience in drug discovery and leading technology platforms, Creative Biolabs has highly qualified for providing comprehensive and efficient as well as economic darunavir inhibitor study services for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2.
Darunavir is an oral nonpeptidic HIV-1 protease inhibitor that is used to selectively inhibit the cleavage of HIV polyproteins, thereby preventing viral maturation, proteolytic activity, and HIV-1 replication. Darunavir binds to HIV-1 protease with high affinity, potent antiviral activity against both wild-type and multidrug-resistant HIV-1. The drug is currently valuable used as part of an antiretroviral therapy regimen for HIV-1 infection in treatment-experienced patients with limited therapeutic options.
Recently, two protease inhibitors, lopinavir and ritonavir have been used in clinical for efficacy tests, with results showing some clinical effects. Darunavir designed to target viral proteinases, researchers have processed drug-target interaction (DTI) prediction of antiviral drugs available on markets against SARS-CoV-2 helicase, among darunavir predicted to have a Kd of 90.38 nM against SARS-CoV-2’s helicase. Moreover, the DTI prediction results of anti-viral drugs available against a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) 3'-to-5' exonuclease show that darunavir has a Kd of 195.73 nM (Beck, 2020). Although there was no current supporting literature found for darunavir to be used as a CoV therapeutic, lopinavir is possible as a potent drug against coronavirus infection in further research.
