Description: JNJ-2408068, also known as HE066500 and R170591, is an inhibitor of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). JNJ-2408068 exhibited potent antiviral activity with 50% effective concentrations (EC50s) of 2.1 nM. A similar inhibitory effect was observed in a RSV-mediated cell fusion assay (EC50= 0.9 nM). JNJ-2408068 interferes with RSV fusion through a mechanism involving a similar interaction with the F protein.
