Studies in sugar chemistry. VII. Glucuronides of podophyllum derivatives.

The antitumor activities of several glucuronide methyl esters of podophyllum derivatives were tested in vitro against two human tumor cell lines and their drug resistant sublines. The most active compound studied was methyl (4'-carbobenzoxy-4'-demethyl-epipodophyllotoxin-D-glucopyranoside)uronat e 19. Compound 19 was as potent in a colon carcinoma model and… CONTINUE READING
