Phenylurenyl chalcone derivatives have been synthesized and tested as inhibitors of in vitro development of a chloroquine-resistant strain of Plasmodium falciparum, activity of the cysteine protease falcipain-2, in vitro globin hydrolysis, beta-hematin formation, and murine Plasmodium berghei malaria. The most active antimalarial compound was(More)
A series of sulfonamide chalcone derivatives were synthesized and investigated for their abilities to inhibit beta-hematin formation in vitro and their activity against cultured Plasmodium falciparum parasites. Inhibition of beta-hematin formation was minimal in the aromatic ring of the chalcone moiety as it appeared for compounds 4b, 4d-f, and greatest(More)
The synthesis of novel chlorovinyl sulfone-like chalcone derivatives and their antimalarial activity against cultured Plasmodium falciparum parasites, hemozoin formation, hemoglobin hydrolysis and murine malaria model are described. Compounds were prepared via Claisen-Schmidt condensation from available chloromethylphenyl sulfones with substituted(More)
Some novel derivatives of Bis-chalcone were synthesized and characterized by their physical and spectral data. All the synthesized compounds were subsequently screened for in vitro globin hydrolysis, β-hematin formation, and murine Plasmodium berghei, using chloroquine as the reference drug. Most of the synthesized compounds exhibited mild to moderate(More)
We have synthesized a series of sulfonylureas and have tested their antimalarial activities, including inhibition of in vitro development of a chloroquine-resistant strain of Plasmodium falciparum, in vitro hemoglobin hydrolysis, hemozoin formation, and development of Plasmodium berghei in murine malaria. The most active antimalarial compound was(More)
