Entecavir monohydrate (SQ 34676; BMS 200475) is a potent

BMS-200475 has a EC50 of 3.75 nM against HBV. It is incorporated into the protein primer of HBV and subsequently inhibits the priming step of the reverse transcriptase. The antiviral activity of BMS-200475 is significantly less against the other RNA and DNA viruses[1]. Entecavir is more readily phosphorylated to its active metabolites than other deoxyguanosine analogs (penciclovir, ganciclovir, lobucavir, and aciclovir) or lamivudine. The intracellular half-life of entecavir is 15 h

Daily oral treatment with BMS-200475 at doses ranging from 0.02 to 0.5 mg/kg of body weight for 1 to 3 months effectively reduces the level of woodchuck hepatitis virus (WHV) viremia in chronically infected woodchucks

BMS 200475 is prepared in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and diluted with appropriate medium containing 2% fetal bovine serum. HepG2 2.2.15 cells are plated at a density of 5×105 cells per well on 12-well Biocoat collagen-coated plates and are maintained in a confluent state for 2 to 3 days before being overlaid with 1 mL of medium spiked with BMS 200475. Quantification of HBV was performed on day 10[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
