Novel 21-amino steroids as potent inhibitors of iron-dependent lipid peroxidation.

Two representative compounds from a novel chemical series of potent inhibitors of lipid peroxidation are described. The compounds 21-[4-(2,6-di-1-pyrrolidinyl-4-pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl]-16 alpha-methylpregna-1,4,9(11)-triene-3,20-dione monomethane sulfonate (U74006F) and 21-[4-(3,6-bis(diethylamino)-2-pyridinyl)-1-piperazinyl]-16 alpha-methylpregna-1,4,9… (More)
