We describe the synthesis and the antiviral evaluation of novel alpha and beta dideoxynucleoside derivatives in which the base has been replaced by a 3-hydroxy-2-methylpyridin-4-one. The syntheses were successfully achieved by the use of the standard Vorbrüggen coupling conditions. Moderate activity of these compounds were found on herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2.Lire l‘article
