Background: We previously synthesized two DNA intercalative pyrim-ido[4',5':4,5]thieno(2,3-b) quinolines (PTQ), 9-hydroxy-4-(3-diethylaminopropylamino)pyrimido[4',5':4,5]thieno(2,3-b) quinolines (Hydroxy-DPTQ) and 8-methoxy-4-(3-diethylaminopropylamino) pyrimido[4',5':4,5]thieno(2,3-b) quinolines (Methoxy-DPTQ), and reported their cytotoxicity against cancer cell lines.
Objective: In the present study, we sought to analyze the antitumor activity of Hydroxy-DPTQ and Methoxy-DPTQ on Ehrlich's ascites carcinoma in vivo models, along with other pharmacological activities and toxicity.
Methods: Antitumor activity, In vivo antioxidant measurement, Anti-inflammatory activity Analgesic activity, Hematological study, Biochemical parameters, and Nephroprotective ac-tivity. Read More
