  • 16,16-dimethyl PGA2

16,16-dimethyl PGA2 is a metabolism-resistant analog of PGA2 with a prolonged in vivo half-life. It inhibits the proliferation of Sendai virus in cultured African green monkey kidney cells by >90% at a concentration of 4 µg/ml.1 Daily infusion of 10 µg of 16,16-dimethyl PGA2 methyl ester into mice infected with influenza A virus increased survival by 40%.2 Similar treatment of mice inoculated with erythroleukemia cells delayed tumor growth and increased survival time.3
