CMX001 is a broad spectrum antiviral agent [1].

CMX001 has been reported to be active in vitro against a broad range of viruses from all five families of dsDNA viruses infecting human with EC50 values of 0.02μM, 0.0004μM, 17μM , 0.045μM and 0.07μM for Adenovirus, Herpesvirus, Papillomavirus, Polyomavirus and Orthopoxvirus, respectively. In addition, CMX001 has been revealed to arrest disease progression by inhibiting viral DNA replication and thereby reducing viral burden. Apart from these, initial studies has been demonstrated the efficacy of CMX001 for pre-exposure and post-exposure prophylaxis in mouse, rabbit, cynomolgus monkeys and human [1].

Shipping ConditionEvaluation sample solution: ship with blue ice. All other available sizes: ship with RT, or blue ice upon request.
General tipsFor obtaining a higher solubility, please warm the tube at 37°C and shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20°C for several months.


Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

Human fetal brain SVG cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 10 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 ℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

0.01, 0.03, 0.07, 0.1, and 1 μM, 96 h


CMX001 caused a dose-dependent decrease in the number of JCV-infected cells during initial infection. In addition, CMX001 treatment resulted in a dose-dependent decrease in the number of JCV genome copies present in infected cells.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

4-6 week-old female A/Ncr mice

Dosage form

Oral administration, 10 mg/kg on day 0 and 2.5 mg/kg every other-day


Treating mice with CMX001 at a 10 mg/kg dose followed by 2.5 mg/kg doses every other-day for two weeks provided solid protection against mortality and weight loss following an intra-nasal challenge of ectromelia virus.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.
