A new synthesis of poly heterocyclic compounds: Expected anti-cancer reagents

In this articale, we have described a new practical cyclocondensation synthesis for a series of [1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c]pyrido[3,2-e] pyrimidine and pyrido[2′,3′:4,5] pyrimido[6,1-c][1,2,4] triazine from 2-amino-3-cyano-4.6-diarylpyridines. Also polyheterocyclic compounds containing [1,2,4]triazolo and [1,2,3,4]tetrazolo moieties were also synthesized through the reactions of 3-hydrazino-8,10-diaryl [1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c]pyrido[3,2-e]pyrimidine with both formic acid and the formation of diazonuim salt respectively . Newly synthesized heterocycles…

CHOP study finds remote monitoring effectively detects seizures in at-risk newborns

Philadelphia, June 22, 2020 – A team of researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has demonstrated how to easily and effectively monitor for seizures in newborn infants, catching more instances than typical methods and improving the quality of care for infants in hospitals that lack the on-site resources to detect these seizures. The findings…
