Abstract: (E)-5-(2-Bromovinyl)isodideoxyuridine (BVisoDDU), synthesized on the basis of molecular modeling, is selectively active against HSV-1 (three different strains) but inactive against HSV-2. Unlike BVDU, BVisoDDU is completely resistant to cleavage by thymidine phosphorylase. BVisoDDU is also the first nucleoside analogue lacking OH groups at both the 2'- and 3'-position that shows pronounced activity against HSV-1 replication.
