Thiophene-3-carboxamide analogue of annonaceous acetogenins as antitumor drug lead.


PMID 25226228

Abstract

Five novel acetogenin analogues with a furan, thiophene, or thiazole ring were synthesized, and their inhibitory activities toward human cancer cell lines were evaluated. The analogues showed more potent activities than natural acetogenin. One of them, the thiophene-3-carboxamide analogue, strongly inhibited the growth of human lung cancer cell line NCI-H23 in the xenograft mouse assay without critical toxicity.
