A set of polyphenol compounds was synthesized and assayed for their ability in inhibiting influenza A virus replication. A sub-set of them showed low toxicity. The best compounds within this sub-set were 4 and 6g, which inhibited the viral replication in a dose-dependent manner. The antiviral activity of these molecules was demonstrated to be caused by their interference with intracellular pathways exploited for viral replication: (1) MAP kinases controlling nuclear-cytoplasmic traffic of viral ribonucleoprotein complex; (2) redox-sensitive pathways, involved in maturation of viral hemagglutinin protein.
