Topical microbicides offer women the opportunity to protect themselves from sexual HIV transmission under their own control. A series of poly[styrene-alt-(maleic anhydride)] derivatives were prepared by amidation or hydrolysis of the anhydride moiety. The derivatives were shown to be of low cell toxicity and effectively inhibited HIV-1 infections in an in vitro cellular model. Poly[styrene-alt-(maleic acid, sodium salt)] was the most potent inhibitor, being 100-fold more potent than dextran sulfate suggesting its potential application as a new class of polyanionic microbicides.
