Slovenja: The Land of Many Dreams
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is caused by HIV, is an immunosuppressive disease that results in life-threatening opportunistic infections and malignancies. First reported in 1981 in the United States, AIDS has become a major worldwide epidemic. The United Nations Program on AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that at the end of 2002 nearly 42 million will have died of AIDS. During 2002, about 3 million people became infected. AIDS is presently the leading cause of death in Africa and the fourth leading cause of death worldwide. Cos P. et al. J. Nat. Prod., 2004, 67, HIV/AIDS as a Global Threat
HIV-1 Replication Cycle HAART – Highly Active AntiRetroviral Therapy
Problems with the Current Therapy: - Adverse/Toxic effects. - High cost of treatment. - Multiple drug resistance.

HIV-1 integrase: Catalyzes one of the crucial step of HIV replication. Has no cellular analogs. All retroviral integrases have a conservative structure. Is a prospective target for treating HIV infection and preventing AIDS. HIV-1 Integrase as Anti-HIV Target
ISTC/BTEP Project # 3197/111 The purpose of the project is to find new efficient inhibitors of HIV-1 integrase on the basis of the latest technologies in bioinformatics and computer-aided drug discovery. Duration: April 1, 2005 – March 31, 2008
First Approval of HIV-1 Integrase Inhibitor
Problems with Finding of HIV-1 Integrase Inhibitors Viral strains resistant to HIV-1 integrase inhibitors have been already identified. Conformation of integrase is rather flexible, it is stabilized in the pre-integration complex. Three-dimensional structure of full-length integrase as well as the structure of integrase complex with viral DNA are not known.
Participating Institutions Institute of Biomedical Chemistry of RAMS (IBMC), Moscow (leading organization – computer-aided drug discovery) Institute of Organic Chemistry of RAS (IOC), Moscow (chemical synthesis of potential compounds) Institute of Physical-Chemical Biology of MSU (IPCB), Moscow (testing of potential compounds in vitro) National Cancer Institute, NIH, Frederick, MD (molecular modelling, testing in cell culture)

PASS: Prediction of Activity Spectra for Substances
What is the Biological Activity Spectrum? Biological Activity Spectrum is the “intrinsic” property of the compound that reflects all kinds of its biological activity, which can be found in the compound’s interaction with biological entity. Poroikov V. and Filimonov D. In: Predictive Toxicology. Ed. by Christoph Helma. Taylor & Francis, 2005,
Biological Activity Spectrum Represents 3300 kinds of biological activity (PASS 2007), including: 374 pharmacotherapeutic effects, e.g. Alzheimer's disease treatment Anabolic Analgesic Angiogenesis inhibitor Angiogenesis stimulant Antiarrhythmic Antiarrhythmic Class III Antiarthritic Antibacterial...

More than 64 million PASS predictions included. More than 700 activities available. Predictions separately searchable by probabilities of activity and inactivity. Both types combinable by logical AND. Predictions searchable by probability ranges (in subintervals of 0.0 – 1.0). PASS searches combinable with any other search criteria. PASS Predictions Searchable in NCI DB Browser (http://cactus.nci.nih.gov)
Based on PASS predictions, a fraction of “active” compounds can be increased significantly: Poroikov et al. J. Chem. Inf. Comput. Sci., 2003, 43,

Strand Transfer Inhibition by Compounds IOCh-18-47, IOCh and IOCh-18-92
3’-Processing Inhibition by Compounds IOCh-18-47, IOCh and IOCh-18-92
198 compounds were selected as hits, synthesized (or purchased from vendors of commercially available samples) 176 compounds were tested in vitro on inhibition for strand transfer and 32 compounds were tested on inhibition for 3’-processing. 15 compounds were identified as HIV-1 integrase inhibiting agents with IC 50 values in the micromolar and sub-micromolar range. For 4 most active compounds results were further confirmed by in vitro testing at NCI. The discovered compounds belong to the chemical series where this activity was unknown (NCEs). Summary of the Results
Some Prospects for a Near Future (BII Supported?) 1.Synthesis and biological testing of additional rationally designed derivatives from the same chemical series, to increase potency and decrease toxicity. 2.Detailed study the mechanism of binding, specificity, etc. for this classes of compounds. 3.Preparation and submission of patent(s). 4.Negotiations with pharmaceutical companies about possibilities of commercialization.
