Abstract

Cynaropicrin is a guaianolide sesquiterpene lactone with a 5-7-5 tricyclic skeleton, four exo-olefins, and two hydroxyl groups. Recently, it was found that the compound is a potent in vitro and in vivo inhibitor of the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei, which causes human African trypanosomiasis (HAT; sleeping sickness). In this Letter, chemical derivatization of cynaropicrin and the structure-activity-relationship (SAR) study against T. brucei is described.
