Abstract This chapter reviews studies that have used in silico techniques to design or identify potential HIV-1 entry inhibitors targeting cellular receptors CD4, CCR5, and CXCR4 and envelope glycoproteins, gp120 and gp41 of HIV-1. Both structure- and ligand-based design techniques have been used in those studies by applying diverse modeling techniques such as quantitative structure-activity relationship analysis, conformational analysis, molecular dynamics, pharmacophore generation, docking, virtual screening (using docking software and also shape-based ROCS techniques), and fragment-based design.
