A series of 9 piperazine derivatives of xanthone were synthesized and evaluated for cardiovascular activity. The following pharmacological experiments were conducted: the binding affinity for adrenoceptors, the influence on the normal electrocardiogram, the effect on the arterial blood pressure and prophylactic antiarrhythmic activity in adrenaline induced(More)
The 5-HT1A and 5-HT2 receptor affinity of 2- and 3-substituted 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carbolines 1-8, 10 and 12-15 has been determined. It has been found that the specific 5-HT1A affinity of the protonated form (KiAH+) 2-n-hexyl derivatives 4, 8, 14 and (+)-LSD is of the same order. It has been shown by means of molecular modelling methods that(More)
A series of new 4,6-di(heteroaryl)pyrimidines containing an N-methylpiperazino group (6-13) or an ethylenediamine chain (15-20) in position 2 were synthesized and their 5-HT1A and 5-HT2A receptor affinities were determined. It was shown that the substituent effects on the 5-HT2A affinity are additive and could be described quantitatively. In a behavioral(More)
This paper describes the synthesis of a series of new N-arylpiperazine derivatives of pyridine and 2-pyridone. The in vitro pharmacological study indicated that all of the compounds possess affinity towards α1-adrenoceptors, with exception of 6d, and are selective over α2 receptor. The most potent compound 5f displayed 62-fold α2/α1 selectivity with Ki(More)
A series of (E)-α-methylcinnamyl derivatives of selected aminoalkanols was synthetized and evaluated for activity in central nervous system. All compounds were tested as anticonvulsants and one additionally in antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like assays. The compounds possessed pharmacophoric elements regarded as beneficial for anticonvulsant activity:(More)
Previous results of histamine H3-receptors investigations allowed to formulate a general structure of H3-receptor antagonists. According to this model a series of compounds were obtained. As heterocycles they contained a theophylline moiety connected with a polar group (amine, ester, amide, and thiourea function) via an alkyl chain linked by a spacer to a(More)
The effect of a steric hindrance around the protonation center of the model 4-substituted 1-(3-chlorophenyl)-piperazines 1-9 and 11-14 on their affinity for 5-HT1A and 5-HT2 receptor sites was investigated. Additional evidence for hydrophobic interactions between the N-4 hydrocarbon substituents and 5-HT1A receptors has been presented. However, the(More)
Nine new N-acyl derivatives of 2-amino-1-alcohols and 1-amino-2-alcohols with a potential arrhythmic activity have been obtained. In the preliminary screening 2-[N-(7-theophyllineacetyl)-amino]-2-methyl-1-propanol, 5, was more active in the chloroform-induced arrhythmia than quinidine. Unlike to propranolol and quinidine, compound 5 in doses of 5-30 mg/kg,(More)
A series of new N-(2,5-dimethylphenoxy)- and N-(2,3,5-trimethylphenoxy)alkylaminoalkanols [I-XVII] was synthesized and evaluated for anticonvulsant activity. Pharmacological tests included maximal electroshock (MES) and subcutaneous pentetrazole seizure threshold (scMet) assays as well as neurotoxicity (TOX) evaluation in mice after intraperitoneal (i.p.)(More)
