Synonyms: EIDD-1931 | NHC
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Preliminary evidence indicates that the ribonucleoside analogue β-D-N4-hydroxycytidine (NHC, EIDD-1931) has broad spectrum antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and related zoonotic group 2b or 2c Bat-CoVs . The potency of the NHC ester prodrug (molnupiravir) against multiple coronaviruses, its therapeutic efficacy, and oral bioavailability in vivo, all highlight its potential utility as an effective antiviral against SARS-CoV-2 and other future zoonotic coronaviruses.
