Publisher and Date:(MDPI, 2018)Cyclooxygenase enzymes play a vital role in inflammatory pathways in the human body. Apart from their relation with inflammation the additional involvement of COX-2 enzyme with cancer activity was recently discovered. In some cancer types the level of COX-2 enzyme is increased indicating that this enzyme could be a suitable target for cancer therapy. Based on these findings we have synthesized some new diflunisal thiosemicarbazides and 124-triazoles and tested them against androgen-independent ...
