A novel antioxidant for the potential treatment of ischaemia was designed by incorporating an isoindoline nitroxide into the framework of the free radical scavenger edaravone. 5-(3-Methyl-pyrazol-5-ol-1-yl)-1,1,3,3-tetramethylisoindolin-2-yloxyl 7 was prepared by N-arylation of 3-methyl-5-pyrazolone with 5-iodo-1,1,3,3-tetramethylisoindoline-2-yloxyl 8 in the presence of catalytic copper(I)iodide. Evaluation of 7, its methoxyamine derivative 10 and 5-carboxy-1,1,3,3-tetramethylisoindolin-2-yloxyl (CTMIO) against edaravone 1 in ischaemic rat atrial cardiomyocytes revealed significant decreases in cell death after prolonged ischaemia for each agent; however the protective effect of the novel antioxidant 7 (showing greater than 85% reduction in cell death at 100 μM) was significantly enhanced over that of edaravone 1 alone. Furthermore, the activity for 7 was found to be equal to or greater than the potent cardioprotective agent N6-cyclopentyladenosine (CPA). The methoxyamine adduct 10 and edaravone 1 showed no difference between the extent of reduction in cell death whilst CTMIO had only a modest protective effect.

14 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
