Summary of "Novel tacrine-coumarin hybrids linked to 1,2,3-triazole as anti-Alzheimer's compounds: In vitro and in vivo biological evaluation and docking study."

A new series of tacrine-coumarin hybrids linked to 1,2,3-triazole were designed, synthesized, and tested as potent dual binding site cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs) for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Among them, compound 8e was the most potent anti-AChE derivative (IC = 27 nM) and compound 8m displayed the best anti-BChE activity (IC = 6 nM) much more active than tacrine and donepezil as the reference drugs. Compound 8e was also evaluated for its BACE1 inhibitory activity and neuroprotectivity against PC12 cells exposed to Aβ which indicated low activity. Finally, in vivo studies by Morris water maze task showed that compound 8e significantly reversed scopolamine-induced memory deficit in rats.
