Terephthalic acid at 20 mg/kg/day in lowered serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels in rats. The cholesterol content was lowered in the lipoprotein fractions. The effects of the agents on de novo lipid synthesis showed that similar enzymes were affected in rat liver and small intestinal mucosa cells as when compared to in vitro tissue culture cells from(More)
N-Substituted indan-1.3-diones have proven to be potent cytotoxic agents effective against the growth of single cell leukemia tumors and cell lines derived from solid tumors. A number of the derivatives were active against growth of solid tumors e.g. colon, lung bronchogenic and osteosarcoma for which few effective agents are available to inhibit their(More)
2,3-Dihydrophthalazine-1,4-dione derivatives demonstrated potent cytotoxicity against the growth of murine leukemia cells and human single cell suspension, i.e. Tmolt3 leukemia and HeLa-S3, as well as colon adenocarcinoma and KB nasopharynx. However, only select compounds demonstrated activity against bronchogenic lung, osteosarcoma and glioma growth.(More)
A series of amine carboxyboranes including their amides and esters were synthesized and shown to have potent hypolipidemic activity in rodents at 20 mg/kg/day. Ethylamine carboxyborane, di-n-propylamine-carboxyborane, trimethylamine-carbomethoxyborane, n-butylamine carbomethoxyborane, methylamine-N-ethyl carbamoylborane and trimethylamine-N-n-octyl(More)
Boron analogues of carbamoylcholine and thiocholine and esters of these analogues were prepared. These compounds were fairly stable toward hydrolysis and demonstrated moderate anti-inflammatory and hypolipidemic activities in mice. The hypolipidemic activity of the compounds at a dose of 8 mg/kg/day was equivalent in reducing lipid levels in serum to those(More)
The amine-cyanoboranes, the amine-cyanoalkylboranes and the aminomethyl-phosphonate-N-cyanoborane adducts proved to be active antineoplastic agents. These compounds were more effective against single cell cultured cell growth rather than solid tumors. The following amine-cyanoboranes, (CH3)2(C18H37)NBH2CN (5), (CH3)2NHBH[CH(CH3)2]CN (7) and(More)
A series of 4-substituted 1-acyl-1,2,4-triazolidine-3,5-diones demonstrated potent activity in CF1 mice when administered intraperitoneally at 20 mg/kg/day, lowering both serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels significantly. The 4-(4-chlorophenyl)-substituted compounds demonstrated better hypolipidemic activity in rodents than 4-methoxy-, 4-nitro-, and(More)
2-Furoic acid was shown to be effective in lowering both serum cholesterol and serum triglyceride levels significantly in rats with an elevation of HDL cholesterol level at 20 mg/kg/day orally. LDL receptor activity was reduced in hepatocytes, aorta foam cells, small intestinal epithelium cells and fibroblasts. HDL receptor activity was elevated in the rat(More)
N-Pyridinyl- and N-quinolinyl-ethyl substituted succinimide and phthalimide derivatives demonstrated significant hypolipidemic activity in rodents lowering both serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels at 20 mg/kg.day i.p. The pyridinyl, quinolinyl and tetrahydro-2-quinolinyl substitution improved the hypolipidemic activity of the succinimide derivatives.(More)
The N-pyridinyl and N-quinolinyl substituted derivatives of phthalimides and succinimides demonstrated cytotoxicity against the growth of a number of cultured cell lines. The substituted succinimides were more effective than the unsubstituted succinimide derivative in reducing cell growth. On the other hand, phthalimide demonstrated more potent cytotoxicity(More)
