Diana and T.J. Nitz begin with the chemistry of the capsid uncoating inhibitors that are active against picornaviruses. Then R.K. Robins and G.R. Revankar discuss -D-ribofuranosyl nucleosides (like ribavirin) that are active against a broad spectrum of RNA viruses. The acyclic nucleoside analogues (like acyclovir and ganciclovir) are described by N.G. Johansson, and the acyclic nucleoside phosphonates (like HPMPC and PMEA) are addressed by A. Holy. Finally, P. Herdewijn, J. Balzarini, and E. De Clercq review the anti-HIV potential of the class of the 2,3-dideoxynucleoside analogues to which AZT, DDI, and DDC belong.
