ABSTRACT Following the previous SAR of a novel dihydropyrimidinone scaffold as HIV-1 replication inhibitors a detailed study directed towards optimizing the metabolic stability of the ester functional group in the dihydropyrimidinone (DHPM) scaffold is described. Replacement of the ester moiety by thiazole ring significantly improved the metabolic stability while retaining antiviral activity against HIV-1 replication. These novel and potent DHPMs with bioisosteres could serve as advanced leads for further optimization.
