An analogue of primaquine, N1-(3-acetyl-4-5-dihydro-2-furanyl)-N4-(6-methoxy-8-quinolinyl) 1,4-pentanediamine, CDRI Code 80/53), has been evaluated for anti-relapse activity against sporozoite induced Plasmodium cynomolgi B infection in rhesus monkeys. The compound has shown 100% curative anti-relapse activity at 1.25 mg/kg x 7 day dose schedule, thereby(More)
A total of 51 imidazoles, pyrroles, quinolines and isoxazolines compounds were screened for antileishmanial activity in vivo and in vitro, using Leishmania donovani as the test parasite. The screening revealed hitherto unknown antileishmanial activity in these heterocycles. Three of the compounds screened (one belonging to isoxazoline series and two from(More)
The spreading of resistance towards chloroquine has diminished its value as a potent and safe drug in malaria endemic areas. Recent reports on the reversal of chloroquine resistance in the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum in vitro and in vivo by verapamil, desipramine and other Ca(2+)-channel blockers and antidepressants has initiated a strategy for(More)
Administration of compound 85/83 during the peri- and post-implantation period intercepted pregnancy in hamster and guinea pig by parenteral route and in hamster by oral route also. The m.e.d. for hamster and guinea pig was 10 and 20 mg/kg, respectively; lower doses were less effective. Restricting the administration to early post-implantation schedule(More)
Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) is proved to be an additional vector of maize mosaic virus (MMV). The pH range for the infectivity of the virus in extracted juice is found to be from 4.4 to 9.0, the optimum being 5.6 to 7.2. Effect of certain chemicals on the virusin vitro has also been studied. Cross protection between MMV and Sugar-cane mosaic virus (SMV)(More)
A few pregnane derivatives were synthesized from 1,2-dehydroprogesterone (1). Ring A of 1,2-dehydroprogesterone was aromatized without affecting C-20, and the resulting acetoxy compound (2) after hydrolysis yielded 1-hydroxy-4-methyl-19-norpregna-1,3,5(10)-trien-20-one (3). Reactions of the phenol (3) with alkyl halides yielded the ethers 6a-6b and 7.(More)
Various approaches towards the control of fertility in females have been discussed. The salient observations made in the field of reproductive physiology which may generate new leads for the development of agents capable of inhibiting pregnancy, are described. The discussion concerning the oestrogen and progesterone receptors is directed towards designing(More)
Progesterone-receptor binding affinity of some nonsteroidal molecules was assessed by competitive protein binding assay in rabbit as well as human uterine cytosol in vitro. Of 40 compounds belonging to 5 different series tested, 3-(p-anisoyl)-2-chloro-6, 7-dimethoxy-quinoline exhibited around 50% inhibition whereas 2-(p-anisoyl) naphthalene and(More)
