    SAR exploration from an initial hit, (S)-N-(2-cyclohexenylethyl)-2-fluoro-6-(2-(1-hydroxy-3-phenylpropan-2-ylamino)-2-oxoethoxy)benzamide (1), identified using our proprietary automated ligand identification system (ALIS),(1) has led to a novel series of selective hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5B polymerase inhibitors with improved in vitro potency as exemplified by (S)-2-fluoro-6-(2-(1-hydroxy-3-phenylpropan-2-ylamino)-2-oxoethoxy)-N-isopentyl-N-methylbenzamidecarboxamide (41) (IC(50)=0.5 microM). The crystal structure of an analogue (44) was solved and provided rationalization of the SAR of this series, which binds in a distinct manner in the palm domain of NS5B, consistent with biochemical analysis using enzyme mutant variants. These data warrant further lead optimization efforts on this novel series of non-nucleoside inhibitors targeting the HCV polymerase.
