Flavonoid compounds represent an important natural source of antiretrovirals for AIDS therapy due to their significant anti-HIV-1 activity and low toxicity. Here we propose a simple theoretical criterion to discriminate active from inactive flavonoids that is suitable for rapid in silico screening of flavonoid libraries, and selection and optimization of lead compounds with anti-HIV-1 activity.
