Abstract To develop an alpha-(N)-heterocyclic carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone with clinical utility as an anticancer agent, two analogues, 3-hydroxy-4-methylpyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (3-HMP) and 5-hydroxy-4-methylpyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (5-HMP), of 5-hydroxypyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (5-HP) have been designed and synthesized by two different methods. 3-HMP and 5-HMP both showed better antitumor activity than their respective parent compounds, 3-hydroxypyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone and 5-HP, in mice bearing the L1210 leukemia.
