In this study, a series of 3-butylquinazolinedione linked with different substituent to N1 of quinazoline nucleus have been synthesized. Some of the new final compounds tested in vitro for their inhibitory activity against phosphodiestrase 4B which is the enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of cyclic adenosine mono phosphate, the second messenger involved… (More)
The scientific community is still interested in heuristic techniques and optimization algorithms that could be applied in complex problems such as the antenna adaptive beam forming problem. This paper presents an empirical study of solving the problem of antenna adaptive beam forming using Central Force Optimization (CFO) algorithm. The algorithm… (More)
Novel 4-(4-bromophenyl)phthalazine and phthalazinone derivatives connected through 2-propanol spacer to N-substituted piperazine residue were synthesized. All the new compounds were screened for their effect on β-adrenergic blocking activity on the norepinephrine-induced precontracted aortic ring module. Most test compounds displayed appreciable… (More)
A series of 5-arylidene-2-(3,5-diaryl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)-1,3-thiazol-4(5H)-ones were synthesized and screened for their in vitro antitumor activity against human breast adenocarcinoma cell line (MCF-7). Five of the test compounds exhibited good antitumor activity superior to the reference drug, doxorubicin, with IC50 range 1.4–2.3 μM. Among the… (More)
A series of new phthalazine derivatives 3a–i and 4a–c were synthesized via the reaction of 1-chlorophthalazine derivative 2 with either N-substituted-piperazines, primary or their secondary amines. The structure of the synthesized, new compounds were characterized by spectral data. The anti-proliferative activity on human breast cancer cell line MCF-7 of… (More)
A series of pyridazinone-containing compounds were designed and synthesized as congeners for diclofenac, the most potent and widely used NSAID. The target compounds were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activity on rat paw edema inflammation model against diclofenac as a reference compound. Seven of the tested compounds demonstrated more than 50%… (More)
In this study, a novel series of quinazolinone derivatives analogue to nitraquazone structure were synthesized. The compounds tested for their inhibitory activity against phosphodiesterase 4B revealed that compound 6d shows promising inhibitory activity comparable to that of Rolipram, whereas compounds 6a and 6c exhibited moderate inhibitory activity.
