Abstract:

HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections like fungal, tuberculosis, etc. The intense media coverage of AIDS puts the public on an emotional roller caster, and inflated promises are engendered by each success. For the moment drugs acting as both HIV-reverse transcriptase inhibitors along with antimicrobial properties are one of the brightest hope. The Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) appear ideally suited for further development in the chemoprophylaxis and therapy of HIV infections. In recent years, isatinimino compounds have been reported to exhibit broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties that include anti-HIV, antituberculous, antifungal and antibacterial activities. Hence these leads should be regarded as structural hits in the search for more potent antimicrobial compounds with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of HIV / AIDS. This review focuses on the design of isatinimino compounds, which resemble the NNRTIs for the development of an ideal anti-HIV drug.
