BACKGROUND Vancomycin use is considered inappropriate in most hospitals. A particular concern is the recent emergence of S. aureus with decreased susceptibility to vancomycin, making it important to reduce overall exposure to vancomycin to minimize the incidence of VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci). The aim of this work was to analyze the use of(More)
A series of novel long-chain alkyltriazoles were prepared from commercial diols in a rapid process with good yields. The compounds were evaluated in vitro for their anticancer potential against two human cancer cell lines: colon carcinoma (RKO) and uterine carcinoma (HeLa). The results of colorimetric MTT assays showed that six of fourteen compounds tested(More)
Herein, we report the antimalarial activity of nine 4-methoxychalcone derivatives 1a-i and an initial analysis of their ADMET properties. All compounds showed potent activity against the P. falciparum chloroquine-resistant clone W2, with IC50 values ranging from 1.96 µM to 10.99 µM, with moderate or low cytotoxicity against the HeLa cell line. The compound(More)
BACKGROUND The witches' broom disease is a plague caused by Moniliophthora perniciosa in the Theobroma cacao, which has been reducing the cocoa production since 1989. This issue motivated a genome project that has showing several new molecular targets, which can be developed inhibitors in order to control the plague. Among the molecular targets obtained,(More)
