Im looking up alternative treatments for cmv and i know some antiretro's have a broader spectrum of effect, they may be active against herpes viruses as well as enteroviruses. Researching tenofovir for cmv, cmx001, the drug Dr Peterson was interested in, that is a new improved version of cidofovir, suppose to have a broad effect on viruses with good effect on ebv/cmv/hhv6. SO anyway looking up tenofovir, i also keep seeing alot mentioned about cmx001, tenofovir is referred to as cmx157. I would like to know if anyone can tell me if they have a similar effect. Page 3 of this link https://www.blsmeetings.net/2009GHSImeetingsMCM/presentations/Bio/Painter-Chimerix-Smallpox-MOD.pdf makes it appear they may be closely related. This link doesnt have alot of info on tenofovir, mostly cmx001. If tenofovir is more effective than standard avs for cmv thats great, another plus is that it seems to be more cost effective, requires 1 dose a day and a much longer half life than regular antivirals, so would think be better at suppressing viruses???????? cheers!!
