Febrifugine is an alkaloid isolated from Dichroa febrifuga Lour as the active component against Plasmodium falciparum. Adverse side effects have precluded febrifugine as a potential clinical drug. In this study novel febrifugine analogues were designed and synthesized. Lower toxicity was achieved by reducing or eliminating the tendency of forming chemically(More)
Primaquine is the drug of choice for the radical cure of Plasmodium vivax malaria, but possesses serious side effects. In this study novel primaquine analogues were designed and synthesized. Lower toxicity was achieved by reducing or eliminating the tendency of forming chemically reactive and toxic intermediates and metabolites. In vitro and in vivo studies(More)

The publish/subscribe (pub/sub) paradigm has asynchronous, loosely-coupled and many-to-many communication properties and is widely used in the application of large-scale distributed computing environment. There is the problem that is mutual trustable between network proxies in terms of pub/sub systems and the problem which is hardly to distinguish accident(More)
Febrifugine is an alkaloid isolated from Dichroa febrifuga as the active component against Plasmodium falciparum. Adverse side effects have precluded febrifugine as a potential clinical drug. As part of an ongoing malaria chemotherapy project, novel febrifugine analogues were designed and synthesized. Lower toxicity of these newly designed compounds was(More)
Febrifugine is an alkaloid isolated from Dichroa febrifuga Lour as the active component against Plasmodium falciparum. Strong liver toxicity has precluded febrifugine as a potential clinical drug. In this study novel febrifugine analogues were designed and synthesized. Lower toxicity was achieved by reducing or eliminating the tendency of forming chemically(More)
Febrifugine is the active principal isolated 50 years ago from the Chinese herb chang shan (Dichroa febrifuga Lour), which has been used as an antimalarial in Chinese traditional medicine for more than 2,000 years. However, intensive study of the properties of febrifugine has been hindered for decades due to its side effects. We report new findings on the(More)
Febrifugine is an alkaloid isolated from Dichroa febrifuga Lour as the active component against Plasmodium falciparum, but exhibits toxic side effects. In this study novel febrifugine analogues were designed and efficiently synthesized. New compounds underwent efficacy and toxicity evaluation. Some compounds are much less toxic than the natural product(More)
