1 DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE ANTIVIRAL AGENTS OF A NEW TYPE ProfessorOleg ShadyroBelarusian State UniversityDepartment of Chemistry, Minsk, Belarus
2 The main goal of the study was the development of antivital agents based on the substances capable of regulating various types of free radical reactions.
3 Advantages of the product / technology Some time ago, we have developed an antiviral product Butaminophen that has proven to be effective against herpetic injuries of various types.Advantages of the product / technologyThe Productis an effective anti-herpetic agent,particularly against strains resistant to acyclovir,it possesses also wound-healing, anti-inflammatory and antipyrotic action.The Technologyis simple and easy to put into practice,is a low-cost manufacturing process,the starting raw material is readily available.

9 A new approach to the regulation of free-radical processes in biosystems has been proposed Diphenol and aminophenol derivatives were found to be capable of regulating free-radical transformations occurring in bioorganic compounds with participation of both oxygen-centered (oxidation) and carbon-centered (fragmentation) radicals.Shadyro O.I. et al.

17 Conclusions:The obtained data indicate that sterically hindered aminophenol derivatives possess antiviral properties and hence may be regarded as a novel class of antiviral agents.Among the compounds tested, the most pronounced antiviral properties were found for N-acyl and N-aryl dertivatives of sterically hindered o-aminophenol which were able to interact with various organic radicals while displaying low reactivity towards reactive oxygen species.
