Novelties in the field of anti-infectives in 1997

Clin Infect Dis. 1998 Oct;27(4):865-83. doi: 10.1086/514929.

Abstract

In 1997, more than 40 new medicinal chemical entities in the field of anti-infectives were presented during the 37th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, held in Toronto. Among these novelties, three compounds could or will be candidates for clinical development: HMR 3647, a ketolide derivative; T-3811, a new quinolone; and GM 237,354, a new antifungal compound. Other molecules are potential lead compounds.
