|Title:|| Method for the synthesis, compositions and use of 2'-deoxy-5-fluoro-3'-thiacytidine and related compounds|
|Abstract:||The present invention relates to a method of preparing the antiviral compounds 2'-deoxy-5-fluoro-3'thiacytidine (FTC) and various prodrug analogues of FTC from inexpensive precursors with the option of introducing functionality as needed; methods of using these compounds, particularly in the prevention and treatment of AIDS; and the compounds themselves. This synthetic route allows the stereoselective preparation of the biologically active isomer of these compounds and related compounds.|
