Summary of "Preparation of Antimalarial Endoperoxides by a Formal 2 + 2 + 2 Cycloaddition."

A formal [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition reaction between a 1,3-dione, an olefin, and molecular oxygen mediated by light is reported, which delivers endoperoxides in good yield through the formation of two C-O and one C-C bond in one step. The resulting 1,2-dioxanes are stable compounds and can be further derivatized at the hemiacetal position via alkylation or acetylation. All compounds have been evaluated against Plasmodium falciparum, and the best compound displayed an IC50-value of 180 nM. A potential mechanistic rationale for the formation of these compounds is presented.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Formal instruction, learning, or training in the preparation, dispensing, and proper utilization of drugs in the field of medicine.

Formal education and training in preparation for the practice of a profession.

A biguanide compound which has little antimalarial activity until metabolized in the body to the active antimalarial agent cycloguanil. The usefulness of proguanil is limited by the rapid development of drug resistance by the malarial parasite. The hydrochloride is used for the casual prophylaxis of falciparum malaria, to suppress other forms of malaria, and to reduce transmission of infection (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p405)

Synthetic compounds that are analogs of the naturally occurring prostaglandin endoperoxides and that mimic their pharmacologic and physiologic activities. They are usually more stable than the naturally occurring compounds.

Interactional process combining investigation, discussion, and agreement by a number of people in the preparation and carrying out of a program to ameliorate conditions of need or social pathology in the community. It usually involves the action of a formal political, legal, or recognized voluntary body.
