Assessment of the antiviral activity of 2HCl*H-His-Rim compound compared to the anti-influenza drug Arbidol for influenza caused by A/duck/Novosibirsk/56/05 (H5N1) (Influenza A virus, Alphainfluenzavirus, Orthomyxoviridae) [Оценка противовирусной активности соединения 2HCl*H-His-Rim в сравнении с противогриппозным препаратом «Арбидол» в отношении высоковирулентного штамма вируса гриппа A/duck/Novosibirsk/56/05 (H5N1) (Influenza A virus, Alphainfluenzavirus, Orthomyxoviridae)]

Introduction. The emergence of influenza virus strains with drug resistance to antiviral drugs requires finding new compounds, potential direct-acting inhibitors. Аdamantane compounds drugs used since the 1960s have lost their activity the resulting due to resistance. Only neuraminidase inhibitors such as zanamivir and oseltamivir have been approved by WHO for influenza treatment. The Russian pharmaceutical drug Arbidol (Umifenovirum) is actively used in Russia. This drug is used to treat influenza in Russia, China and most post-Soviet republics. This work presents a new derivative of aminoadamantane - dichlorohydrate L-histidyl-1-adamantayl ethylamine (2HCl*H-His-Rim), which showed a high level of inhibition of strains of influenza virus A in vitro. Objectives. Comparison of antiviral properties of the new synthetic low-molecular inhibitor of influenza A virus replication and Arbidol drug pharmacy. Methods. The compound 2HCl*H-His-Rim was obtained by classical peptide synthesis methods. It was identified by methods of mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy (IR) and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR). Its antiviral properties have been studied in vitro for monolayer of cells Vero-E6 infected with a high-virulent strain of A/duck/ Novosibirsk/56/06 (H5N1) influenza virus at various injection schemes of the investigated compounds. The results. The antiviral activity of the 2HCl*H-His-Rim compound against the highly pathogenic strain of the influenza A/H5N1 virus was slightly higher than for the known pharmacy drug arbidol. Discussion. The difference in antiviral activity of these two compounds is explained by different mechanisms of action on the viral particle. Conclusion. The 2HCl*H-His-Rim compound can be recommended as a candidate for preclinical and clinical trials in order to obtain an etiotropic antiviral drug based on it, due to its high efficacy and economic and synthetic availability. The synthetic compound 2HCl*H-His-Rim acts on influenza A virus variants resistant to Rimantadine and Amantadine. © 2019 Izdatel'stvo Meditsina. All rights reserved.
