Medication Summary

Plecoranil, pocapavir, and vapendavir are antiviral drugs with significant activity against a wide range of rhinoviruses and enteroviruses; however, these drugs have been tested with currently circulating strains of EV-D68 by the CDC, and none of them has activity against EV-D68 at clinically relevant concentrations.

In vitro studies have demonstrated some promising results for developing antiviral medications, but in vivo studies are lacking. [44, 45] [48, 49]
