Kojic acid derived hydroxypyridinone-chloroquine hybrids: synthesis, crystal structure, antiplasmodial activity and β-haematin inhibition.

Aminochloroquinoline-kojic acid hybrids were synthesized and evaluated for β-haematin inhibition and antiplasmodial activity against drug resistant (K1) and sensitive (3D7) strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Compound 7j was the most potent compound in both strains (IC50(3D7)=0.004 μM; IC50(K1)=0.03 μM) and had the best β-haematin inhibition activity (0.07… CONTINUE READING
