1)Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Teachership and Educational Science, Pattimura University, Poka, Ambon 97233 2)Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Medicine, Gadjah Mada University, Sekip Utara, Yogyakarta Received 13-05-2011 Approved 29-03-2013 To develop new potential antimalarial drugs of 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline 5 derivatives from 8-aminoquinoline as starting
material were synthesized in good yields. The synthesis of 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline 5 derivatives compounds
with 8-aminoquinoline 4 as starting material through three steps has been carried out. The first step of reactions is aldol
condensation of benzaldehyde 1 with acetaldehyde 2. The result of reactions is cinnamaldehyde 3 (92.14%) in the form of
yellow solid. The second step of reactions was synthesized of 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline 5 (brown solid, 54.63%)
through cyclization of 8-aminoquinoline 4 with cinnamaldehyde 3 compound. The third step of reactions is methylation and
ethylation of 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline using dimethyl sulphate (DMS) and diethyl sulphate (DES) reagents that it was
refluxed for 17 and 19 h, respectively. The results of reactions are (1)-N-methyl-9-phenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinium sulphate 6
and (1)-N-ethyl-9-phenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinium sulphate 7 in yield from 90.62% and 89.70%, respectively. The results of
testing in vitro antiplasmodial activity at chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum FCR3 strain to 2-phenyl-1,10-
phenanthroline 5 derivatives obtained that (1)-N-ethyl-9-phenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinium sulphate 7 compound has higher
antimalarial activity (IC :0.13 ± 0.02 µM) than antimalarial activity of (1)-N-methyl-9-phenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinium sulphate
6 compound (IC :0.25 ± 0.01 µM) and 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline 5 compound (IC :2.45 ± 0.09 µM). While, the results

The halofantrine as new anti malaria has good Malaria is the most important parasitic disease in the therapeutic effects (Basco et al. 1994). Halofantrine as more world. Its etiological agents are protozoa of the genus active against strains of P. falciparum that are resistant to Plasmodium. Plasmodium falciparum is the most virulent chloroquine, pyrimethamine, and quine (Rang et al. 2003).
among the four species infecting humans and is responsible However, halofantrine is known to have some unwanted for most of mortality. In 2008, among 3.3 billion people at side effects, such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, risk, there were 243 million malaria cases, causing an diarrhea, orthostatic, hypertension, prolongation of QTc estimated 863,000 deaths, mostly of children under five years.
intervals, pruritus, rash, and hepatotoxic (Karbwang et al. From 109 countries endemic for malaria, 45 were within the 1991; Bassi et al. 2006). The 1,10-phenanthroline derivatives World Health Organization (WHO 2009) Especially in African are similar to halofantrine as antimalarial drug which its added Region (Fernández et al. 2011; Fidock et al. 2004; Olumese at heterocyclic with two nitrogen atoms. (In 2000, Yapi 2005; Kayembe et al. 2010). Malaria remains one of the most reported) that the 1,10-phenanthroline ring system appeared important diseases of the developing world, killing 1–3 as new class of potential antimalarial compound (Yapi et al. million people and causing disease in 300–500 million people annually (Fidock et al. 2004; Olumese 2005, Kayembe et al. Now, part of our research was concerning the synthesis 2010). Malaria endemic areas include Africa, South East Asia, and biological activity of 1,10-phenanthroline derivatives.
India and South America; however, the disease is spreading In this program continuation of these studies, we report in to new areas, such as Central Asia, and Eastern Europe.
this paper our results concerning the synthesis and the Local transmission of malaria in the United States, unheard determination of the biological activity of compound type of in the era between World War II and 1980, now accounts for an increasing number of cases (Molyneux et al. 1989).
(Widjayanti et al. 2006). Yapi et al. (2006) have synthesized Clinical cases in the US now average 1,300 per year diaza-analogs of phenanthrene by substituting the two (Wernsdorfer 1991). Worldwide, the majority of deaths occur nitrogen atoms in the phenanthrene skeleton. Antiplasmodial in children; other high risk groups include pregnant women, activity of series of diaza-analogs of phenanthrene derived refugees, migrant workers, and non immune travelers-over from 3-amino-, 5-amino-, 6-amino-, 8-aminoquinoline and 20 million Western tourists at risk annually (fact sheets from 5-isoquinoline showed that among the molecules evaluated Malaria Foundation International). Although four species the 1,10-phenanthroline skeleton was the most active of the genus Plasmodium cause human malaria, compound in vitro on both chloroquine-resistant (FcB1) P. falciparum is the deadliest and will be the subject of this and chloroquine-sensitive (Nigerian) strain with an IC of about 0.13 μM. Based on the skeleton, (Mustofa et al. 2003) The traditional remedies are no longer effective and have also synthesized thirteen derivatives of 1,10- the incidence of malarial by P. falciparum, the most phenanthroline and evaluated the in vitro antiplasmodial dangerous species of parasite, continues to grow, while some activity (Yapi et al. 2000) and their Quantitative Structure traditional drugs such as chloroquine and its congeners are Activity Relationship (QSAR) Mustofa et al. 2003. The losing their activity due to the increasing multi drug resulting of the QSAR analysis found the best theoretical resistance (Yapi et al. 2000; Yapi et al. 2006). Therefore, it is activity of six new compounds and its was synthesized and essential to find new drugs of anti malaria having a evaluated their in vitro antiplasmodial activity through pharmacological activity higher than of currently available experiment in laboratory.

C H A P T E R 3 3-D US Imaging of the Carotid Arteries Aaron Fenster, Grace Parraga, Anthony Landry, Bernard Chiu, Michaela Egger,and J. David Spence Determining the severity of carotid atherosclerotic stenosis has been an importantstep in establishing patient management pathways and identifying patients who canbenefit from carotid endarterectomy versus those who should be treated using life-style and pharmaceutical interventions. Recently a number of research groups havedeveloped phenotypes other than carotid stenosis using noninvasive imaging. Mon-itoring carotid plaque progression/regression and identifying vulnerable orhigh-risk plaques that can lead to thrombogenic events using noninvasive imagingtools now involve multiple disciplines and multiple modalities, including imageprocessing.

Technology Innovation Management Review TIM Lecture Series The Expanding Cybersecurity Threat It used to be that not a month would go by without some new data breach being reported. Then it seemed not a week would go by. Today, we see daily reports about some new attack vector, some new cyber- espionage group, some new kind of cyber-attack occurring against our
