The action of the coumarin-type drugs and related compounds is reviewed to their VKOR antagonistic effects. In our study, twenty 3-pyridinyl, pyrimidinyl and pyrazolyl-4-hydroxycoumarin derivatives were synthesized. A comparative in vivo (CT, PT determination) and in vitro (measurement of PIVKA-II levels) anticoagulant study with respect to warfarin showed(More)
Some new substituted coumarinylthiazolines, coumarinylthiazolidin-4-ones, and substituted chromenothiazoles were synthesized and evaluated for anticonvulsant activity. Some selected compounds were assayed against seizures induced by pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) and strychnine in mice. Compounds 3b, 6b, and 7b were the most active of the series against PTZ(More)
A series of tetralin-6-ylpyridines and tetralin-6-ylpyrimidines was newly synthesized starting from 1-(1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalen-6-yl)ethanone (1). The two groups of derivatives incorporated also different five membered nitrogen-containing heterocycles. The anticancer activity of some of the prepared compounds was evaluated using two human tumor cell(More)
The preparation of new quinazoline and benzo[d]isothiazole-based antitumor agents is described. The target compounds fall into three groups including the N-substituted derivatives 2a–d, the substituted amino derivatives 4–6a–d, and the dimeric compounds 7–9a,b. Docking study of the designed compounds into the ATP binding site of epidermal growth factor(More)
Hypoxic cells which are common feature of solid tumors are resistant to both anticancer drugs and radiation therapy. Thus, the identification of drugs with the selective toxicity toward hypoxic cells is an important target in anticancer chemotherapy. Tirapazamine has been shown to be an efficient and selective cytotoxin after bioreductive activation in(More)
A new series of quinoxaline 1,4-di-N-oxides was synthesized and evaluated for antitumor and hypoxic-selective cytotoxic activities. Antitumor activity against liver carcinoma (Hepg2) and brain tumor (U251) human cell lines were evaluated, among the tested compounds, 5b and 9b exhibited potential cytotoxic effect against Hepg2 with IC50 values of 0.77 and(More)
New series of 4-methyl and 3,4-dimethyl-7-oxycoumarin derivatives (oxadiazoles, thiadiazoles, triazoles, and thiazolidinones) were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their monoamine oxidase (MAO) A and B inhibiting effect. All the synthesized compounds showed in vitro high affinity and selectivity toward MAO-A isoenzyme, compared to clorgyline and(More)
Novel series of spiro[(2H,3H)-quinazoline-2,1'-cyclohexane] derivatives (I-XVI) were synthesized and biologically evaluated as cytotoxic agents against human breast carcinoma cell lines (MCF-7) using doxorubicin as a reference drug. Most of the tested compounds displayed promising cytotoxic activity, especially derivatives V, VIb and XIb. The most active(More)
A facile, convenient and high yielding synthesis of novel Acrylohydrazide thioglycosides via one-pot reaction of the potassium thiolate salts of aglycon part prepared from readily available starting materials with 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetylα-D-glucoand galactopyranosyl bromides . Pharmacological evaluation of compounds 8j, 8b, 8h, 8k, 8f and 5b in vitro against(More)
Molecular docking simulation study was carried out to design a novel series of spiro [(2H, 3H)quinazoline-2,1'-cyclohexan]-4(1H)-one derivatives as a new class of effective PARP-1 inhibitors. Spiro [2H-3,1-benzoxazine-2,1'-cyclohexan]-4(1H)-one (5) was the starting compound to synthesize the target proposed analogues. The derivatives that showed the top(More)
