Abstract

2-Thioxo-4-thiazolidinone derivatives were evaluated as aldose reductase inhibitors (ARIs) and most of them exhibited good or excellent in vitro efficacy. Out of the tested compounds, most N-unsubstituted analogues were found to possess inhibitory effects at low micromolar doses and two of them exhibited higher potency than sorbinil, used as a reference drug. The insertion of an acetic chain on N-3 of the thiazolidinone scaffold led to analogues with submicromolar affinity for ALR2 and IC(50) values very similar to that of epalrestat, the only ARI currently used in therapy.
