The cancer chemopreventive activity of quinoxaline derivatives 1-20 has been evaluated by studying the inhibitory effect on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation. The quinoxaline derivatives 1-20 showed inhibitory effect on EBV-EA activation without cytotoxicity on Raji cells. All compounds exhibited dose dependent inhibitory activities, most(More)
The 2-(5-methyl-2-furyl)-1H-benzimidazole moiety has shown promising activity against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced angiogenesis. In part I of this study, we have synthesized new analogs and tested their anti-angiogenic potentials. Here, we continue our previous study with different new analogs. Some compounds show promising cytotoxic(More)
A novel series of 5-nitro-1H-benzimidazole derivatives substituted at position 1 by heterocyclic rings was synthesized. Cytotoxicity and antiviral activity of the new compounds were tested. Compound 3 was more active than doxorubicin against A-549, HCT-116 and MCF-7. However, compound 3 showed no activity against human liver carcinoma Hep G-2 cell line.(More)
As a continuation to our previous work in synthesizing antitumor benzimidazoles, a series of 2-((1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)methylthio)-4-(substituted)-6-phenylpyrimidine-5-carbonitriles was synthesized. Evaluation of the synthesized compounds for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against twelve cell lines namely, Cervical carcinoma (KB), Ovarial carcinoma(More)
On continuation to our work, new quinoxalin-2(1H)-ones were synthesized to study their cytotoxic effect against HepG-2 and MCF-7 with their effect on the human tyrosine kinase (TRK). Compounds 12, 18, 15, 13, 11a, 20 and 16, respectively, were found to be more potent than cisplatin against HepG2 and selective to TRK. Also, compounds 12, 18, 20, 13, 14, and(More)
In this study, synthesis and docking studies of a series of new benzimidazole derivatives linked to substituted pyrimidines either through the methylenethio linkage or its bioisosteric methylene amino bridge were carried out. All the synthesized compounds were evaluated for their hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA replication-inhibitory activity. Compounds 4d, 4f,(More)
The reaction of o-phenylene diamine and ethyl oxamate is reinvestigated and led to 3-aminoquinoxalin-2(1H)-one rather than benzimidazole-2-carboxamide as was previously reported. The structure of the obtained quinoxaline has been confirmed by X-ray. The anti-tumor activity of synthesized quinoxalines 1-21 has been evaluated by studying their possible(More)
Inhibition of angiogenesis through inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2) has been applied in cancer therapy because of its important role in promoting cancer growth and metastasis. In the presented study, a series of benzimidazol-furan hybrids was designed and synthesized through facile synthetic pathways. Evaluation of the(More)
In this work, the benzimidazole-pyrrole conjugates 6a-h and benzimidazole-tetracycles conjugates 12-14 were prepared. The cytotoxicity of the compounds 3, 4a-h, 6a-h, 8, 10 and 12-14 was tested against lung cancer cell line A549. Compound 6b exhibited higher activity than the bis-benzoxazole natural product (UK-1), the standard. The tested 4g,h, 6a-h, 10(More)
2-(2-Furyl)-1H-benzimidazoles 3-11 were synthesized and tested for their in vitro VEGF inhibition in MCF-7 cancer cell line. Compound 5a was more potent than Tamoxifen, and compounds 3b, 5a, 5c, 6b, 7a and 10 showed promising potency. Furthermore, compounds (6b, 7a and 10) showed remarkable selective inhibition of COX-2 enzyme close to that of Celecoxcib.(More)
