BACKGROUND/AIMS Since the polio epidemic in Ireland in the 1950s, most polio survivors are approaching into the 6th and 7th decade of their lives. There is little data about bone density and risk of fractures in these patients. In 2006, we undertook an audit of post-polio patients attending rheumatology and neurology outpatient clinics in a university(More)
Quinolones are broad-spectrum synthetic antibacterial drugs first obtained during the synthesis of chloroquine. Nalidixic acid, the prototype of quinolones, first became available for clinical consumption in 1962 and was used mainly for urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli and other pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria. Recently, significant(More)
Two important biologically active compounds were isolated from Mallotus philippensis. The isolated compounds were characterized using spectroanalytical techniques and found to be bergenin (1) and 11-O-galloylbergenin (2). The in vitro antioxidant and antiplasmodial activities of the isolated compounds were determined. For the antioxidant potential, three(More)
An efficient and novel method for the synthesis in moderate to good yield (72%-84%) of a series of 3-amino-1-substituted-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene-2,4-dicarbonitriles 1-5 via one-pot multi-component reactions of aldehydes, malononitrile, 1-tetralone and ammonium acetate has been delineated. Cyclocondensation attempts of aminocyanophenanthrene derivatives 1,(More)
The complete mol-ecule of the title compound, C(14)H(16)N(2)S(2), is generated by a crystallographic inversion centre. The thio-phene residue is close to being coplanar with the imine group [C-C-C-N torsion angle = 6.5 (2)°], and the conformation about the imine C=N bond [1.281 (2) Å] is E. In the crystal, the three-dimensional architecture is consolidated(More)
In the title compound, 2C(24)H(21)N(3)S·C(6)H(6), the two independent Schiff base mol-ecules (A and B) in the asymmetric unit differ in the orientation of the tetra-hydro-benzothio-phene ring system with respect to the carbazole ring system by 180° rotation about the C-C bond in the C-C=N-C linkage. The two mol-ecules also differ in the orientation of the(More)
