Antimitotic and antiproliferative activities of chalcones: forward structure-activity relationship

A series of 59 chalcones was prepared and evaluated for the antimitotic effect against K562 leukemia cells. The most active chalcones were evaluated for their antiproliferative activity against a panel of 11 human and murine cell cancer lines. We found that three chalcones were of great interest as potential antimitotic drugs. In vivo safety studies conducted on one of the most active chalcones revealed that the compound was safe, allowing further in vivo antitumor evaluation.
