Among the various fused heterocyclic rings, benzothiazole and its analogs have been explored
broadly in search of newer therapeutic medicinal agents. The benzothiazole scaffold has been
associated with huge biological potential like anticancer, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antitubercular,
antiviral, anti-convulsant etc. The occurrence of benzothiazole core in various compounds
proves its value in the sphere of pharmaceutical chemistry. The connected research and developments in
benzothiazole based chemistry become an active topic for medicinal scientists. A large number of benzothiazole
and its heterocyclic derivatives are available in the market and used for the treatment as clinical
drugs have been extensively used in practice to treat diverse types of ailments with high therapeutic
potential. This review presents the latest therapeutic developments of benzothiazole containing compounds
in the medicinal chemistry.
Keywords: Anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, benzothiazole, biological potential, fused heterocycle.
