In Vitro Antimycobacterial Activity of New 7-Chloroquinoline Derivatives

Author(s): Juan Bueno, Fernando A. Rojas Ruiz, Santiago Villabona Estupinan, Vladimir V. Kouznetsov.


The antimycobacterial activity of new 18 7-chloroquinoline derivatives, obtained from 4,7-dichloroquinoline, was evaluated against 15 Mycobacterium spp among standardized and clinical isolates using the MTT susceptibility test to obtain minimum inhibitory concentration values (MIC, μg/mL). The results suggested that 7-chloroquinoline compounds are useful leads for new anti-TB drug development. The most active compounds exhibited moderate activity with 16 μg/mL MIC values for all tested microorganisms.
