Inula racemosa Hook.f. commonly known as Pushkarmula (Compositae) has been used as a traditional drug in India, China and Europe. In the present study, 95% ethanolic extract of roots and its fractions (n-hexane, chloroform, n-butanol and aqueous) were evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against cancer cell lines of colon, ovary, prostate, lung, CNS and(More)
A simple and expedient method for the synthesis of a series of 14-aryl-14H-dibenzo[a.j]xanthenes is described through a one-pot condensation of beta-naphthol with aryl aldehydes catalysed by TaCl5 under solvent-free conventional heating. The major advantages of the present method are: high yields, less reaction time, solvent-free condition and easy(More)
Immunomodulation is a process, which alters the immune system of an organism by interfering with its functions. This interference results in either immunostimulation or immunosuppression. An immunomodulator is any substance that helps to regulate the immune system. This "regulation" is a normalization process, so that an immunomodulator helps to optimise(More)
The manuscript pertains to the synthesis and in vitro cytotoxic evaluation of a series of N-alkylbromo and N-alkylphthalimido-isatins against four different human cancer cell lines namely Colon: HCT-15; Liver: Hep-2; Lung: A-549 and Leukemia: THP-1 at 10 and 100 μM concentrations. The active compounds based on preliminary studies were evaluated for their(More)
A series of N-(2-anilino-pyridyl) linked 2-amino benzothiazoles (4a-n) and [1,2,4]triazolo [1,5-b]benzothiadiazine conjugates (5a-j) have been designed, synthesized and evaluated for their antiproliferative activity. Some of these compounds (4h-k, 4n, and 5e) have exhibited potent cytotoxicity specifically against human leukemia HL-60 cell lines with IC(50)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate Carissa spinarum stem isolate for its anti-cancer therapeutic potential. METHODS The n-butanol fraction of aqueous extract from Carissa spinarum stem was assessed for its cytotoxic and pro-apoptotic activity. KEY FINDINGS We report for the first time the anti-cancer potential of C. spinarum stem aqueous extract (CSE) and its(More)
In the course of our search for new anticancer agents, a series of novel malyngamide derivatives were synthesized by sharpless asymmetric epoxidation, followed by Julia-Kocinski olefination reactions as key reaction sequence. Anticancer activities of all these derivatives were screened against IMR-32, SF-295, SKNSH, HeLa, Colon-502713, SW-620, and Hop-62(More)
