Synthesis and biological evaluation of quinones derived from natural product komaroviquinone as anti-Trypanosoma cruzi agents.


Current chemotherapy drugs for Chagas' disease are insufficient due to their limited efficacy; however, anti-trypanosomal agents have recently shown promise. As such, synthetic intermediates of komaroviquinone were evaluated for anti-trypanosomal activity. Based on the results, a series of novel quinone derivatives were screened for anti-trypanosomal… (More)
