In the search of effective and selective chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of viral infections, my "Odyssey" brought me to explore a variety of approaches, encompassing interferon and interferon inducers, suramin and other polyanionic substances, S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase inhibitors, inosine 5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase inhibitors, 5-substituted 2'-deoxyuridines such as (E)-5-(2-bromovinyl)-2'-deoxyuridine, acyclovir (esters) and other acyclic guanosine analogues, 2',3'-dideoxynucleoside analogues, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), bicyclams, and acyclic nucleoside phosphonates. This had led to the identification of a number of compounds, efficacious against such important viral pathogens as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and other herpesviruses, pox-, adeno-, polyoma-, and papillomaviruses, and hemorrhagic fever viruses.
