Abstract

New glycolipids and a benzylammonium lipid were rationally designed by varying the chemical structure of a D-glucose-derived hit compound active as lipid A antagonist. We report the synthesis of these compounds, their in vitro activity as lipid A antagonists on HEK cells and the capacity to inhibit LPS-induced septic shock in vivo. The lack of toxicity and the good in vivo activity suggest the use of some compounds of the panel as hits for anti-sepsis drug development. In addition in the studies presented in this PhD thesis new classes of natural compounds are tested for their ability to interact with TLR4 receptor complex.
