In the present communication, newly synthesized 8-quinolinamines (25-27) related to previously reported 2-tert-butylprimaquine (2) were evaluated for their in vitro antimalarial activity against chloroquine sensitive and resistant Plasmodium falciparum strains, in vivo antimalarial activity against P. berghei infected mice, in vitro antileishmanial activity(More)
Opioid modulation of host resistance to infectious diseases is well documented; however, not much is known during visceral leishmaniasis (VL). Low doses of morphine, administered subcutaneously in Leishmania donovani-infected BALB/c mice, on days 0 and +15, significantly (p < 0.05) suppressed (1 mg/kg/day) or even sterile-cleared (2 mg/kg/day) the(More)
In continuing our search of potent antimalarials based on 8-aminoquinoline structural framework, three series of novel bis(8-aminoquinolines) using convenient one to four steps synthetic procedures were synthesized. The bisquinolines were evaluated for in vitro antimalarial (Plasmodiumfalciparum), antileishmanial (Leishmaniadonovani), antimicrobial (a panel(More)
Synthesis and antimalarial activities of N8-(4-amino-1-methylbutyl)-5-alkoxy-4-ethyl-6-methoxy-8-quinolinamines (5) and their pro prodrug analogues (6-7) prepared by covalently linking 5 to the redox-sensitive (8) and esterase-sensitive (9) linkers through the amide linkage are reported. The most effective 8-quinolinamines [5c (R=C5H11) and 5f (R=C8H17)](More)
OBJECTIVE The effect of morphine on host defense during Leishmania donovani infection in golden hamsters was studied. METHODS Hamsters were intracardially infected with L. donovani amastigotes and then monitored by spleen touch print microscopic examination. Morphine and naloxone were administered subcutaneously and intraperitoneally, respectively.(More)
New primaquine conjugates 5-7 with glucosamine and two polymers of polyaspartamide type, poly[alpha,beta-(N-2-hydroxyethyl-DL-aspartamide)] (PHEA) and poly[alpha,beta-(N-3-hydroxypropyl-DL-aspartamide)] (PHPA), were synthesized, characterized and screened for their antimalarial activity. The conjugates differed in the type of covalent bonding, length of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To produce comparative data on a group of Trichomonas vaginalis clonal strains with varied drug responses using identical methods and materials. METHODS Five clonal strains of Trichomonas vaginalis were isolated from reference strain using agar plate technique. The variability of growth kinetic and susceptibility of clonal strain to(More)
Latent tuberculosis is a subclinical condition caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which affects about one-third of the population across the world. To abridge the chemotherapy of tuberculosis, it is necessary to have active drugs against latent form of M. tuberculosis. Therefore, it is imperative to devise in vitro and models of latent tuberculosis to(More)
The effects of opiates in various infections are well known; however, very little is known about tuberculosis infection. Therefore, in the present study, we report for the first time, the effects of morphine during murine tuberculosis. Mice were infected intravenously with Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv, administered morphine (0.1-100 mg/kg subcutaneously(More)
