Among the plethora of heterocyclic nucleus discovered, the oxadiazoles have also been explored extensively.
The oxadiazole structure has been demonstrated to bear important biological activities such as anti-cancer, antiinflammatory,
anti-tuberculosis, anti-malarial and anti-schistosomiasis etc. The presence of oxadiazole motifs in diverse
types of compounds proves its importance in the field of medicinal chemistry. This review is complementary to earlier
reviews and covers recent updates of various pharmacological aspects of oxadiazoles. To help the reader better know the
context for these approaches, a summary of various aspects of background of related topic is presented.
