In this study the solvolysis of newly synthesized fluocinolone acetonide C-21 esters was analysed in comparison with fluocinonide during a 24-hour period of time. The solvolysis was performed in an ethanol-water (90:10 v/v) mixture using the excess of NaHCO₃. The solvolytic mixtures of each investigated ester have been assayed by a RP-HPLC method using(More)
A novel topical corticosteroid FA-21-PhP, 2-phenoxypropionate ester of fluocinolone acetonide, has been synthesized in order to investigate the possibility of decreasing systemic side effects. In this study model system for in vitro solvolytic reaction of FA-21-PhP has been analyzed in ethanol/water (90:10, v/v) with excess of sodium hydrogen carbonate. The(More)
The partition coefficients (log P) of theoretically possible alkyliodinated iminodiacetic acid (IDA) derivatives and commercial IDA derivatives were calculated using two computer programs: ChemSketch Log P and ChemOffice Ultra. Newly synthesized ligands (DIETHYLIODIDA and DIISOPROPYLIODIDA) with the highest calculated log P were labeled with technetium-99m.(More)
In this paper, human skin and corneal permeability of twenty-two newly synthesized 17β-carboxamide steroids was predicted using biopartitioning micellar chromatography (BMC). These compounds are potential soft glucocorticoids with local anti-inflammatory activity when applied to the skin or eye. BMC systems are used to simulate physicochemical properties of(More)
Soft glucocorticoids are compounds that are biotransformed to inactive and non-toxic metabolites and have fewer side effects than traditional glucocorticoids. A new class of 17β-carboxamide steroids has been recently introduced by our group. In this study, local anti-inflammatory activity of these derivatives was evaluated by use of the croton oil-induced(More)
In this paper, twenty-two 17β-carboxamide steroids were synthesized from five corticosteroids (hydrocortisone, prednisolone, methylprednisolone, dexamethasone and betamethasone) in two steps. The first step was periodic acid oxydation of these corticosteroids to corresponding cortienic acids and the second step was amidation of thus obtained cortienic acids(More)
The permeation properties of twenty newly synthesized α-alkoxyalkanoyl and α-aryloxyalkanoyl C-21 esters of standard corticosteroids: Fluocinolone acetonide, dexamethasone, triamcinolone acetonide and hydrocortisone were established using a PAMPA assay (70% silicone oil and 30% isopropyl myristate). The data were compared with parent corticosteroids with(More)
In this study, the interaction of valsartan (VAL), an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, with cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) was investigated. The effect of cationic micelles on spectroscopic and acid-base properties of VAL was carried out using UV spectrophotometry at physiological conditions (pH 7.4). The binding of VAL to CTAB(More)
In this study, the interaction of the anion of quinapril (QUIN), angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, with cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) was investigated. The effect of cationic micelles on the spectroscopic and acid-base properties of QUIN was studied at pH 8. The binding of QUIN anion to CTAB micelles implied a shift(More)
Molecular docking studies were performed on 18 17β-carboxamide steroids in order to select compounds with potential local anti-inflammatory activity. These derivatives are amides of cortienic acids (obtained from hydrocortisone, prednisolone, and methylprednisolone) with methyl or ethyl esters of six amino acids. Interactions with the glucocorticoid(More)
