Epilepsy is the most common primary neurological disorder known. In the past decade, various aryl semicarbazones have been designed that were structurally dissimilar from many common anticonvulsants containing the dicarboximide function (CONRCO), which may contribute to toxic side effects. In the present work various N4-(2,6-dimethylphenyl) semicarbazones(More)
Betulinic acid is a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpenoid and has been shown to exhibit a variety of biological activities including inhibition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), antibacterial, antimalarial, antiinflammatory, anthelmintic and antioxidant properties. This article reports a survey of the literature dealing with betulinic acid(More)
Neuropathic pain can be described as pain associated with damage or permanent alteration of the peripheral or central nervous system. In contrast to acute nociceptive pain, the cascade of events that arise following peripheral nerve injury leads to a maintained abnormality in the sensory system, resulting in an abnormal pain phenomenon that can be grossly(More)
Isatin and its derivatives have been reacted with 4-(4'-chlorophenyl)-6-(4"-methyl phenyl)-2-aminopyrimidine to form Schiff bases and the N-Mannich bases of these compounds were synthesized by reacting them with formaldehyde and several secondary amines. Investigation of antimicrobial activity of the compounds was made by the agar dilution method against 28(More)
Isatin (Indole 2,3-dione), its 5-chloro and 5-bromo derivatives were added to 3-amino-2-methylmercapto quinazolin-4(3H)-one to form Schiff bases and the N-Mannich bases of these compounds were synthesized by reacting with formaldehyde and several secondary amines. Their chemical structures have been confirmed by means of their IR, 1H-NMR data and by(More)
PURPOSE HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, bacterial infections and others. In this paper, we describe an aminopyrimidinimino isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of(More)
Glutamate is the most widely distributed and a major excitatory neurotransmitter in the CNS. It has been found to play a critical role in various physiological functions in which increased glutamate or its subsequent stimulation is thought to have a role in pathophysiological mechanism of various CNS diseases like epilepsy, stroke, depression and pain.(More)
A new series of triazole-imidazo[2,1-b][1,3,4]thiadiazole hybrids (6a-s, 7a) were designed by a molecular hybridisation approach and the target molecules were synthesized via one pot click chemistry protocol. All the intermediates and final molecules were characterised using spectral methods and one of the target compounds (6c) was analysed by the single(More)
The purpose of this study was to prepare various isoniazid derivatives by introducing the isoniazid pharmacophore into several molecules and screening for antimycobacterial activity. Ortho-hydroxy acetophenone reacts with isoniazid to form acid hydrazones. The C-Mannich bases of the above acid hydrazones were prepared by reacting them with formaldehyde and(More)
On the basis of pharmacophoric modelling studies of existing NNRTIs, a series of isatin beta-thiosemicarbazone derivatives was synthesized and evaluated for their anti-HIV activity in HTLV-III(B) strain in the CEM cell line. Three compounds showed significant anti-HIV activity, whereupon compound 6 was found to be the most active compound with an EC(50)(More)
