Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  HIV-1 plaque reduction assay
Description:  Preliminary experiments in the inhibition of HIV-1 replication by invention compounds were performed as follows. Drug assays were carried out as previously described by Larder et. al., Antimicrobial Agents & Chemotherapy, 34:436-441, 1990. HIV-1LA1 infected HT4-6C cells were exposed to drugs as indicated and incubated for 3 days at 37 C. The cells were fixed with crystal violet to visualize plaques. Antiviral activity was assessed as the percentage of control plaques (no drug) measured in drug treated samples. The EC50 is the micromolar concentration which reduces plaque number by 50%. The activity of adefovir was compared with AZT (zidovudine) and 1-O-hexadecylpropanediol-3-adefovir (HDP-ADV) in HIV-1 infected HT4-6C cells.
