2,3-Dihydro-1H-1,5-benzodiazepine amidines were prepared by nucleophilic substitution of 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-1,5-benzodiazepine-2-thiones. Evaluation of the 13 synthesised amidines as antitumour agents was carried out in vitro against 60 human tumour cell lines at the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA. The screening revealed a moderate cell growth inhibition of two derivatives on all cell lines at concentrations ranging from 10(-5) to 10(-4) mol/l. Log P values were theoretically calculated. The more active derivatives were found to exhibit a higher lipophilicity.
