  1. Anti-HIV Acylthiol & Thioether prodrugs (U.S. Patent Number 12/414,321)

    These inventions provide the compositions, pharmaceutical carrier, and usages of the new Acylthiols (E-329-2000 family) and Thioether pro-drug (E-177-2010 family) compounds in treatment of retroviral infections such as HIV. These compounds target the…
  2. PNA-Detection of Pathogens (U.S. Patent Number 13/592,490)

    The laboratory of Daniel Appella, PhD. has developed a prototype HIV testing kit that employs a peptide nucleic acid probe to capture HIV RNA recovered from patient blood. The probe targets a highly conserved segment of the Gag sequence. Initial data…
  3. Programmable self-assembled nanostructures based on sidechain-modified pna for the multivalent display of ligands (U.S. Patent Number EP 2569328 A2)

    The invention concerns compositions comprising strands of polynucleotide and strands of PNA, each PNA strand comprising: (i) from 2 to 50 nucleobase subunits and (ii) one or more gamma substituents. The PNA strands are complementary to at least a…
  4. Sidechain Functionalized S-acylbenzamides With Anti-HIV Activity

    HIV infection remains a major medical problem, with approximately 38 million people worldwide living with HIV. Nipamovir and SAMT-247 are simple and inexpensive small molecules that inactivate HIV virus by interference with final maturation steps of…
