Structure-activity relationship studies within a series of N-hydroxy-dihydronaphthyridinone HIV integrase inhibitors led to a candidate compound, of high potency and with an excellent resistance profile.

In the present article, we describe SAR studies within a series of N-hydroxy-dihydronaphthyridinone HIV integrase inhibitors that led to a candidate compound, PF-4776548, of high potency and with an excellent resistance profile. Uncertainties around the human pharmacokinetic predictions for PF-4776548 led to the compound being taken into a human microdose study to confirm its human pharmacokinetics, the results of which are described herein.
