This study was designed as a bibliometric analysis of scientific production on medicinal chemistry (MC) individually and collectively in ten countries from Latin America together with the People’s Republic of China (China), and India. The bibliometric analysis was performed using the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) Database of the Institute of Scientific(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), is a remarkably successful pathogen that has latently infected a third of the world population (Zhang et al., 2006). Infection occurs via aerosol, and inhalation of a few droplets containing M. tuberculosis bacilli is enough for lung infection (Hassan et al., 2006). After infection, M.(More)
Chagas disease (CD) is a neglected disease caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, which affects underdeveloped countries. The current drugs of choice are nifurtimox and benznidazole, but both have severe adverse effects and less effectivity in chronic infections; therefore, the need to discover new drugs is essential. A computer-guided drug repositioning(More)
BACKGROUND Chagas disease is a public health problem caused by Trypanosoma cruzi. Cruzain is a pharmacological target for designing a new drug against this parasite. Hydrazone and Nacylhydrazone derivatives have been traditionally associated as potential Cruzain inhibitors. Additionally, benzenesulfonyl derivatives show trypanocidal activity. Therefore, in(More)
In this work, a novel series of ethyl and methyl quinoxaline-7-carboxylate 1,4-di-N-oxide derivatives were evaluated in vitro on Trypanosoma cruzi trypomastigotes and Leishmania mexicana promastigotes, and cytotoxicity activity in murine macrophages was tested. In silico molecular docking simulations of trypanothione reductase were also done. Three(More)
