PV-Based Viral Entry Inhibitor Development

-What is Viral Entry Inhibitor?

By definition, viral entry inhibitor refers to the class of compounds that interfere with the process of viral fusion with host cells for infection. First tested with HIV as proving ground, viral entry inhibitor has been rapidly growing as one of the most promising research topics in antiviral therapies while expanding its applications to other emerging viruses such as MERS-CoV, Ebola virus, and Hepatitis C virus (HCV).

PV-Based Viral Entry Inhibitor DevelopmentFig 1. Stages of HIV-1 viral entry process (Didigu & Doms, 2012).

-What is the application of Viral Entry Inhibitors?

The viral entry process has been broken down into 7 targetable elements for inhibitor development:

1. General viral entry inhibitors;

2. High-throughput Screening (HTS) for inhibitor candidates;

3. Viral attachment inhibitors;

4. Receptor engagement inhibitors;

5. Internalization inhibitors;

6. Glycoprotein activation inhibitors;

7. Membrane fusion inhibitors.

-What are the advantages of PV-based Viral Entry Inhibitor development?

As the very first step of infection process, viral entry could be interrupted at relatively low risk for damaging off-target effects, making them potentially safer medications to administrate. Combination of PV-based systems with viral entry inhibitor development allows broad-spectrum antivirals to be discovered and screened through HTS, making the process more cost-effective and rapid.
