Anti-Influenza Activity of Several Caryophyllane Hiosesquiterpenoids

Seasonal influenza is an acute respiratory infection caused by influenza viruses spreading over the whole world. Influenza virus A is responsible for most infections, including those with lethal outcomes. Treatments of patient infected with this type of virus are complicated by possible resistance to all existing drugs. This was most evident in 2007−2009 when an oseltamivir-resistant phenotype appeared among practically all virus subtype H1N1 isolates [1, 2, 3]. Natural compounds can act as promising antiviral agents. Several monoterpene derivatives are known to be active against influenza virus type A [4, 5]. The only sesquiterpene with such activity is isocaryophyllene acetamide . The anti-influenza activity of S-containing sesquiterpenoids has not been reported. Therefore, studies of the antiviral properties of sesquiterpenes containing S-groups are crucial and of indubitable practical interest.
