Design, Synthesis and biochemical evaluation of novel anthracenes, ethanoanthracenes and related compounds to target Burkitt's Lymphoma
Byrne, Andrew J.
THESIS 11064 Burkitt's lymphoma is an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurring with high incidence in developing areas such as equatorial Africa and Papua New Guinea. Within these tropical regions of high incidence (40-50 per 10 6), Burkitt's lymphoma accounts for approximately 50% of childhood cancers and up to 90% of childhood lymphomas diagnosed. The treatment of Burkitt's lymphoma in these regions is insufficient and the development of new, safe and cost effective therapeutics are of current interest. Previous work within the Meegan and Williams groups in Trinity College Dublin identified a potent apoptotic effect induced by the (E)-1,3-bis(aryl)-2-nitro-1-propenes and the tetracyclic antidepressant maprotiline in Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines (MUTU-I and DG-75).
