Antiviral efficacy of lobucavir (BMS-180194), a cyclobutyl-guanosine nucleoside analogue, in the woodchuck (Marmota monax) model of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.

Lobucavir (BMS-180194), a cyclobutyl-guanosine nucleoside analogue, effectively reduced WHV-viremia in chronically infected carrier woodchucks (Marmota monax) by daily per os treatment. WHV-viremia in the animals was measured by the serum content of hybridizable WHV-genomic DNA. Lobucavir, given at daily doses of 10 and 20 mg/kg body weight, reduced WHV-viremia by a 10- to 200-fold range during therapy. Lobucavir, given at 5 mg/kg, suppressed WHV-viremia by a 10- to 30-fold range, whereas a 0.5 mg/kg dose had no significant effect. WHV-viremia was also measured by hepadnaviral endogenous polymerase activity ( EPA) in sera of animals treated for 6 weeks at 5 and 0.5 mg/kg. Changes in EPA in sera of lobucavir treated animals were comparable to changes in WHV DNA levels. Viremia in treated carriers recrudesced to pretreatment levels by 2 weeks of therapy cessation. These results indicated that the minimally effective antiviral daily per os dose of lobucavir in WHV-carrier woodchucks was approximately 5 mg/kg.[1]
