Nucleoside Mimetics

  • Marco Brito-Arias


Modified nucleosides are useful therapeutic agents being currently used as antitumor, antiviral, and antibiotic agents. Despite the fact that a significant variety of modified nucleosides display potent and selective action against cancer, viral and microbial diseases, the challenge still attracts full attention since most of them do not discriminate between normal and tumor cell and in viral infections resistant strains usually appear during the course of the treatment.
