  • Patent number: 10919922
    Abstract: Antiviral compounds comprising prodrugs with differing side chains derived from a tyrosine substance in the form of a tyrosine amide in which the amide substituent side chain is an alkyl ether, thioether, or alkene. Embodiments of the compounds have a range of effective lipophilicity values allowing variation in aqueous solubility, oral bioavailability, cell permeability and in vivo activation properties. The embodiments have promoieties derived from a single amino acid, which are expected to have low toxicity. The features described above also make possible a novel “precision medicine” approach to treatment of viral infections, whereby the prodrug variations can be exploited to match optimal activation of the prodrug to a given patient or strain of virus.
