Abstract

Alkylphosphocholines (APC) with one or more methylene groups in the alkyl chain replaced by oxygen atoms or carbonyl groups, or both have been assembled modularly using w-diols as central building blocks. Out of 25 new compounds of this kind, I I were evaluated for their antiproliferative activity on four cell lines and compared with miltefosine to evaluate their hemolytic activity (HA); and cytotoxicity on non-tumoral cells (MT2), used as markers of adverse effects. Compound 13 was more active on cancer cell lines than on non-tumoral cells and the data were similar for MTT and thymidine incorporation assays. It had less HA than miltefosine, Compound 13 could therefore be a candidate for the preparation of compounds with higher cytotoxicity on cancer cells and lower general toxicity.
