Benzotiophene derivatives exhibit antitumor activity
Raquel Villar Becares, Ph.D, student at Public University of Navarre has reported in her thesis that benzo[b]tiophene 1,1 dioxide is found to have anti-cancer effects. She tested 24 compounds isolated from the derivatives and found 23 compounds from it had antitumor activity when tested in invitro cell cultures. Initial studies have found that the benzotiophene derivatives have antitumor activity and she feels that still a lot has to be done to find out the mechanism of its action and the pathway in which it inhibits the tumor cells in invitro cell culture system.
