Antimalarial potential of xestoquinone, a protein kinase inhibitor isolated from a Vanuatu marine sponge Xestospongia sp.
As part of our search for new antimalarial drugs, we have screened for inhibitors of Pfnek-1, a protein kinase of Plasmodium falciparum, in south Pacific marine sponges. On the basis of a preliminaryExpand
Validation of use of a traditional antimalarial remedy from French Guiana, Zanthoxylum rhoifolium Lam.
Zanthoxylum rhoifolium bark (Rutaceae) is a medicinal plant, traditionally used in French Guiana to treat and prevent malaria. Bioassay-guided extractions of Zanthoxylum rhoifolium bark have shownExpand
Antiplasmodial Activities of Homogentisic Acid Derivative Protein Kinase Inhibitors Isolated from a Vanuatu Marine Sponge Pseudoceratina sp.
As part of our search for new antimalarial drugs in South Pacific marine sponges, we have looked for inhibitors of Pfnek-1, a specific protein kinase of Plasmodium falciparum. On the basis ofExpand
Antitumoral, antileishmanial and antimalarial activity of pentacyclic 1,4-naphthoquinone derivatives
Pterocarpanquinones 8a-c, previously synthesized in our laboratory, and an homologous series of derivatives, compounds 9a-c prepared in this work, were evaluated on breast cancer cells (MCF-7) and onExpand
Blood schizontocidal activity of methylene blue in combination with antimalarials against Plasmodium falciparum.
Methylene blue (MB) is the oldest synthetic antimalarial. It is not used anymore as antimalarial but should be reconsidered. For this purpose we have measured its impact on both chloroquine sensitiveExpand
A non-radiolabeled heme-GSH interaction test for the screening of antimalarial compounds.
Intraerythrocytic Plasmodium produces large amounts of toxic heme during the digestion of hemoglobin, a parasite specific pathway. Heme is then partially biocristallized into hemozoin and mostlyExpand
Daucane sesquiterpenes from Ferula hermonis.
The dried roots of Ferula hermonis yielded three new daucanes, (1R,4R)-4-hydroxydauca-7-ene-6-one (1), (1R,4R)-4-hydroxydauca-7-ene-6,9-dione (2), andExpand
Synthesis and antimalarial activity of new 3-arylquinoxaline-2-carbonitrile derivatives.
New series of 3-arylquinoxaline-carbonitrile derivatives have been synthesized from various 5-substituted or 5,6-disubstituted benzofuroxanes and tested for their in vitro and in vivo activityExpand
Antiplasmodial structure-activity relationship of 3-trifluoromethyl-2-arylcarbonylquinoxaline 1,4-di-N-oxide derivatives.
Derivatives of 3-trifluoromethyl-2-arylcarbonylquinoxaline 1,4-di-N-oxide (4b-g, 5b-g, 6a-g) were synthesized and evaluated for their capacity to inhibit the growth of chloroquine-resistantExpand
Antiplasmodial activity of 3-trifluoromethyl-2-carbonylquinoxaline di-N-oxide derivatives
The in vitro antiplasmodial activity of some 3-trifluoromethyl-2-carbonylquinoxaline di-N-oxide derivatives is reported. The evaluation was performed on cultures of FcB1 strainExpand
