Synthesis, biological evaluation and quantitative structure-active relationships of 1,3-thiazolidin-4-one derivatives. A promising chemical scaffold endowed with high antifungal potency and low cytotoxicity
With reference to recent studies reporting on the various biological properties of the thiazolidinone scaffold, we synthesized more than a hundred compounds characterized by a 1,3-thiazolidin-4-one nucleus derivatised at the C2 with a hydrazine bridge linked to (cyclo)aliphatic or hetero(aryl) moieties, and their N-benzylated derivatives. These molecules were assayed as potential anti-Candida agents and they were shown to possess comparable, and in some cases higher biological activity than well-established topical and systemic antimycotic drugs (i.e. clotrimazole, fluconazole, ketoconazole, miconazole, tioconazole, amphotericin B). Compounds endowed with the lowest MICs underwent further testing in order to assess their cytotoxic effect (CC50) on Hep2 cells, which demonstrated their relative safety. Finally, QSAR and 3-D QSAR models were used to predict putative chemical modifications of the 1,3-thiazolidin-4-one scaffold in order to design new and potential more active compounds against Candida spp.
