Anticonvulsant activity of reaction products of 5,5-diphenylhydantoin with substituted methylene bromides.


PMID 11822175

Abstract

Some derivatives of 5,5-diphenylhydantoin (phenytoin) were synthesized by the alkylation of phenytoin with substituted methylene bromides. The hydantoins were evaluated for possible anticonvulsant activity in the maximal electroshock (MES)- and subcutaneous pentylenetetrazole (ScMet)-induced seizures and for neurotoxicity in the rotorod test in mice and rats.
