African swine fever virus (ASFV) is a highly infectious and lethal swine pathogen that causes serious socio-economic consequences in endemic countries for which no safe and effective vaccine is currently available.

However, whether GS-441524 can inhibit the replication of DNA viruses is unknown. Read More
