PURPOSE HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, bacterial infections and others. In this paper, we describe an aminopyrimidinimino isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of(More)
On the basis of pharmacophoric modelling studies of existing NNRTIs, a series of isatin beta-thiosemicarbazone derivatives was synthesized and evaluated for their anti-HIV activity in HTLV-III(B) strain in the CEM cell line. Three compounds showed significant anti-HIV activity, whereupon compound 6 was found to be the most active compound with an EC(50)(More)
Topoisomerase I (Topo-I) is a major target for anticancer drug discovery and design. As a result, Topo-I inhibitors constitute an important class of the current anticancer drugs. To date, all of the Topo-I inhibitors that have been clinically evaluated are analogues of camptothecin (CPT), an extract of the Chinese tree Camptotheca acuminata. CPT has shown(More)
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) results from infection by the retrovirus, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections like tuberculosis, hepatitis, bacterial infections, etc. In this paper, we designed aminopyrimidinimino isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse(More)
A series of prodrugs of stavudine were synthesized in an effort to enhance spectrum of chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of HIV/AIDS. The 5'-OH function of stavudine was esterified with ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, isoniazide, pyrazinamide, piperazine and dimethylamine acetic acid. The anti-HIV-1 activity of the esters was determined in(More)
Human immuno deficiency virus (HIV) weakens the immune system so that many opportunistic infections (OIs) like tuberculosis, hepatitis, bacterial infections etc can develop. In this paper, we designed aminopyrimidinimino isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for(More)
A series of prodrugs of zidovudine has been synthesized in an effort to enhance spectrum of chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of HIV/AIDS. The 5'-OH function of zidovudine was esterified with ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, isoniazide, pyrazinamide acetic acid. The anti-HIV-1 activity of the esters was determined in CEM cell-line and(More)
The antimycobacterial activity (both in vitro and in vivo) and DNA gyrase inhibition of newly synthesized fluoroquinolone derivatives were tested against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H(37)Rv and Mycobacterium smegmatis, respectively. Among the synthesized compounds, compound F11 was found to exhibit the most potent in vitro antimycobacterial activity with a(More)
HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections like tuberculosis, bacterial infections etc. In this paper, we designed aminopyrimidinimino isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of AIDS and AIDS-related opportunistic(More)
A series of nevirapine derivatives has been synthesized in an effort to enhance the spectrum of chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of AIDS and AIDS-related opportunistic infections. The nevirapine derivative bearing isoniazid moiety (3a) was found to be the most potent compound with EC50 of<0.0636 microM, CC50 of>1000 microM and(More)
