A series of biaryl acids has been found to show micromolar inhibition of the HIV reverse transcriptase (RT) from types 1 and 2 with IC50S in the micromolar range. The series was discovered by consideration of the polymerase active site and sub-structure searching of the company compound collection. Synthesis of analogues to investigate the SAR is described. Two of these compounds have shown inhibition of HIV-2 RT only.
