JNJ4796, a small molecule fuse inhibitor targeting the conserved stem region of hemagglutinin, effectively neutralized a broad spectrum of group 1 influenza A virus (IAV), and protected mice against lethal and sublethal influenza challenge after oral administration. In this study, we reported the modification and structure-activity relationship (SAR) of C (piperazine ring) and E (phenyl ring) rings of JNJ4796. Compound (R)-2c was identified to show excellent in vitro activity against IAV H1N1 and Oseltamivir-resistant IAV H1N1 stains (IC: 0. Read More
