A series of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines and of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinolines were synthesised and evaluated for analgesic activity by both hot-plate and acetic acid writhing methods in rats. Te most potent compound was 2-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-5-quinolinol (IV i) which was shown to be 1/8 and 1/50 as active as morphine according to the employed assay.(More)
A few hydrazones with benzofuran and 1H-indene moieties were synthesized and screened in vitro against vaccinia virus strain IHD, parainfluenza type 3 virus strain HA-1/CR-8, and the MP mutant of herpes simplex virus type 1 [HSV-1 (MP)]. Only the thiosemicarbazones were active. The thiosemicarbazone of 3-chloro-2-formyl-1H-indene inhibited vaccinia virus to(More)
Some 2-(methylamino)naphtho [2,1-b] furans hydrochlorides 1-substituted were synthetized and investigates for antiviral activity in vitro against Herpes simplex virus type I (VHS-I) and parainfluenza virus type 3 HA-I/CR-8 stock.
Some benzyloxyimio compounds, related to oxiconazole and having a 1H-indole or 1H-benzimidazole moiety, have been synthesized and tested in vitro for their antimycotic activity against Candida tropicalis and C. albicans. The most active was showed to be 0-(2,4-dichlorobenzyl)-1-benzyl-5-nitro-1H-benzimidazole-2-carboxaldehyd e oxime (MIC: 25 micrograms/ml(More)
Lithium aluminium hydride reduction of 3,6-anhydro-1-o-benzoyl-4,5-o-isopropylidene-2-o-p-tolylsulfonyl-D-mannitol (II) gives with 74% yield 3,6-anhydro-2-deoxy-4,5-o-isopropylidene-D-arabino-hexitol (III). This compound is used as its corresponding 1-o-p-toluene-sulfonate (IV) for the N-1 alkylation of uracil, 5-fluorouracil, thymine and N-acetylcytosine.(More)
Some quinoline-based mono- and dicarboxylic acids structurally related to kynurenic acid have been synthesized and screened as antagonists of neurotransmission of NMDA, AMPA and KA excitatory amino acid receptors. Higher affinity for NMDA receptor was pointed out in the short series, but all the compounds, even those with key structural features of glutamic(More)
