MONZOTE HIDALGO, Lianet et al. Effects of thiadiazine derivatives on the infective capacity of Leishamia amazonensis promastigotes. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 2006, vol.58, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3054.
The infective capacity of Leishmania amazonensis promastigotes was evaluated after they were treated with a series of 10 thiadiazine derivatives. The parasites were incubated for 24 hours with 1 or 0,1 mg/ml of each compound and then, peritoneal macrophages from BALB/c mice were infected in cultures. All the compounds managed to reduce the infective capacity of parasites by more than 50%. T10 product exhibited the highest effect since it reduced infection by 92,8%.
