a Values shown are means obtained from three independent experiments with each treatment performed in triplicate.

b Cytotoxic effects were evaluated by XTT assay to determine the concentration of 50% cellular cytotoxicity (CC50) of the tested compounds.

c Antiviral effects were evaluated by infection analysis to determine the effective concentration that achieved 50% inhibition (EC50) against the specific virus examined.

d SI, selectivity index. SI = CC50/EC50.
