MATERIALS AND METHODS: The experiments were performed on human acute lymphoblastic leukemia MOLT-4 cells and human acute myeloblastic leukemia ML-1 cells. The research was conducted using the spectrophotometric 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay and the electronic Beckman-Coulter method.
RESULTS: Temporary changes in the leukemia cell viability, size and count were found. The antileukemic activities of the new DAU analogs were weaker than that of daunorubicin. MOLT-4 cells were more sensitive than ML-1 cells to the action of all agents. Among the formamidinodaunorubicins, DAUFmor appeared to be more active in ML-1 cells than DAUFhex, but there were not differences between the analyzed values in MOLT-4 cells.
CONCLUSION: The structural modifications of daunorubicin were responsible for the different antileukemic potentials of the two formamidinodaunorubicins.
