In view of the antimalarial activity in mice of 2-acetylpyridine thiosemicarbazones, a series of analogous 1-oxides was prepared for evaluation. Their synthesis was achieved by the reaction of 2-acetylpyridine 1-oxide with methyl hydrazinecarbodithioate to give methyl 3-[1-(2-pyridinyl 1-oxide)ethylidene]hydrazinecarbodithioate (II). Reaction of the latter(More)
Analysis of the antimalarial activity of a selected series of 17 9-phenanthrenecarbinols against cultured strains of Plasmodium falciparum and against P. berghei in mice following oral administration indicated that the rankings of activities within the series were influenced by substituents on the 9-carbinol and the route of administration.

Camp and Smith strains of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum became resistant to mefloquine after continuous cultivation in the presence of the drug. The 50% inhibitory dose (ID(50)) values for mefloquine, as assessed by [(3)H]hypoxanthine incorporation, were found to have increased 4-fold, from 3 mug/l to 12 mug/l. The ID(50) values obtained(More)
A series of 2-acylpyridine thiosemicarbazones was evaluated in vitro against a chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum strain. Antimalarial activity was assessed by the inhibition of uptake of [G-3H]hypoxanthine by the parasites. Among the mono- and disubstituted derivatives tested, 13 of 17 had 50% inhibitory doses of less than 10 ng/ml. Increasing the(More)
