In recent years their has been an increased use of antifungal agents and has resulted in the development of resistance to drugs. Currently, use of standard antifungal therapies can be limited because of toxicity, low efficacy rates. Different types of mechanisms contribute to the development of resistance to antifungals. This has given raise to search for a(More)
Hypertension is one of the most serious health problems of the modern world with a continuous rise in the number of patients. Selective alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor antagonists though have many advantages and uses in the management of arterial hypertension, their lack of specificity at the level of alpha(1)-adr subtypes leads to multiple side effects. Existence(More)
Ion pairing of a fatty acid with an antibiotic may be an effective strategy for formulation optimization of a nanoantibiotic system. The aim of this study was therefore to explore the potential of linoleic acid (LA) as an ion pairing agent to simultaneously enhance encapsulation efficiency and antibacterial activity of triethylamine neutralized vancomycin(More)
DNA topoisomerases comprise a major aspect of basic cellular biology and are molecular targets for a variety of drugs like antibiotics, antibacterials and anticancer drugs. They act by inhibiting the topoisomerase molecule from relegating DNA strands after cleavage and convert the topoisomerases molecule into a DNA damaging agent. Though drugs of various(More)
Currently phosphodiestrase5 (PDE5) inhibitors are the first-line treatment for erectile dysfunction. Drugs such as sildenafil and tadalafil are available as PDE5 inhibitors which are potent and reversible but lack selectivity with side effects such as headache, facial flushing, dyspepsia, and visual disturbances. We herein report for the first time novel(More)
Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Globally, tuberculosis is second only to AIDS in mortality and the disease is responsible for over 1.3 million deaths each year. The impractically long treatment schedules (generally 6-9 months) and unpleasant side effects of the current drugs often lead to poor patient compliance,(More)
A series of N(1) -(4-substituted-benzyl)-pyrimidines were subjected to 2D and 3D quantitative structure-activity relationship analyses. Statistically significant models were generated, and the most robust model for 2D quantitative structure-activity relationship was obtained using simulated annealing-multiple linear regression. The physicochemical(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) is the world's second commonest cause of death next to HIV/AIDS. The increasing emergence of multi drug resistance and the recalcitrant nature of persistent infections pose an additional challenge for the treatment of TB. Due to the development of resistance to conventional antibiotics there is a need for new therapeutic strategies to(More)
A novel series of aceclofenac hybridised with 1,2,4-triazolo-[3,4-b]-1,3,4-thiadiazoles were designed using molecular hybridization approach and synthesised 6a-j. The structural integrity was confirmed by analytical methods. The hybrid molecules were subjected to in vitro cytotoxic studies against four human cancer cell lines PA-1, OAW-42, T47-D and MCF-7(More)
A series of twenty molecules belonging to 2,5-disubstituted-1,3,4-oxadiazole derivatives of Diclofenac and Naproxen were designed, synthesized and their structures were confirmed by spectroscopy. The target compounds were evaluated for anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. The result indicates that the compounds 12, 4, 6, 7 and 15 were found to have(More)
