Erratum to: Raltegravir, elvitegravir, and metoogravir: the birth of "me-too" HIV-1 integrase inhibitors

Abstract

Correction to Erik Serrao, Srinivas Odde, Kavya Ramkumar and Nouri Neamati: Raltegravir, elvitegravir, and metoogravir: the birth of "me-too" HIV-1 integrase inhibitors. Retrovirology 2009, 6:25. Since the recent publication of our article (Neamati, Retrovirology 2009, 6:25), we have noticed an error which we would like to correct and we would like to apologise to the readers for this mistake.

Correction

The structure of BMS-707035 has not been publicly released. In Figure one on page 2 and a discussion on page 5 of our published paper [1], we mistakenly assigned a structure and activity data to BMS-707035. The structure and activity data that we mentioned actually belong to a different compound from the same group. The resistance pattern of BMS-707035 is "overlapping" rather than identical to raltegravir. Please see the following references [2, 3] for a detailed description of their development of pyrimidine carboxamides.
