[(η(6)-Praziquantel)Cr(CO)3] derivatives with remarkable in vitro anti-schistosomal activity


Patra, Malay; Ingram, Katrin; Pierroz, Vanessa; Ferrari, Stefano; Spingler, Bernhard; Gasser, Robin B; Keiser, Jennifer; Gasser, Gilles (2013). [(η(6)-Praziquantel)Cr(CO)3] derivatives with remarkable in vitro anti-schistosomal activity. Chemistry - A European Journal, 19(7):2232-2235.

Abstract

The antischistosomal effect of two [(η(6)-praziquantel)Cr(CO)(3)] derivatives was investigated. The compounds (see figure: Cr purple, N blue, O red) were prepared in a one-step procedure from commercially available praziquantel. Both derivatives show a high in vitro activity against Schistosoma mansoni, a parasitic trematode, and only a minor cytotoxic effect on selected mammalian cell lines.
