Abstract
2-Fluoropodophyllotoxin (11) and several 4 beta -anilino-2-fluoro-4 ' -O-de methyl analogues were synthesized and evaluated in both antineoplastic and antiviral assays. These compounds were moderately active against some cance r cell lines, but they were less active than the corresponding nonfluorinat ed analogues. Compound 11 exhibited the best activity against KB carcinoma with a GI(50) Of approximately 30 nM. Most compounds exhibited moderate act ivity against HCMV with ID50 and ID90 values in the range of 1 muM and 4 mu M, respectively. Both 9 and 11 showed an unusual 10-fold selectivity for HS V-2 compared to HSV-1.
