Quinolones and its derivatives comprise an important group of heterocyclic compounds that exhibit a wide
range of pharmacological properties such as antibacterial, antitumor, antiviral, anti-ischemic, antiparasitic and anxiolytic.
Persistent efforts have been made over the years to develop novel congeners with superior biological activities and
minimal potential for undesirable side-effects. The present review aims to highlight some recent discoveries on the
development of novel quinolone-based compounds with potential antitubercular and anticancer activity.
