Cytotoxic and COX-2 Inhibition Properties of Hydroxycinnamic Derivatives

Abstract:

The anticancer (cytotoxicity against human mammary gland adenocarcinoma cells) and antiinflammatory properties (COX-2 inhibition) of the hydroxycinnamic derivatives trans-3-(3,4,5- trihydroxyphenyl)-2-propenoic acid, trans-ethyl(3,4,5-trihydroxyphenyl)-2-propenoate and diethyl 2-(3,4,5- trihydroxy-phenylmethylene)malonate were screened. Data point out a putative correlation between antiinflammatory and anticancer properties and suggest hydroxycinnamic derivatives as promising lead compounds for the development of anti-inflammatory/chemopreventive agents.

Keywords: Hydroxycinnamic derivatives, anti-inflammatory, COX-2, anticancer, mammary gland adenocarcinoma cells
