Quinazolinone is a an important heterocyclic compound possessing a wide range of biological activities such as anti-tumour, sedative, antidiabetic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticancer. It is a versatile lead molecule for the design of potential bioactive agents. They show anti-inflammatory and analgesic action by inhibiting the microsomal prostaglandin E2-synthase 1 (mPGES-1) which is a key enzyme of the arachidonic acid. The aim of the present study includes the synthesis of some novel Schiff bases of amino derivatives of quinazolinone as anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent. A new series of the title compounds incorporated into diverse N heterocyclic moieties. First step involves the synthesis of 6,8-diiodo-2-phenyl-4H-3,1- benzoxazin-4-one. In second step this compound reacts with hydrazine hydrate to form a new intermediate 6,8-diiodo-2-phenylquinazolin-4(3H)-one. Schiff bases (5a-5f) were synthesized by the reaction of 6,8-diiodo-2-phenylquinazolin-4(3H)-one with different aromatic aldehydes. Maximum yield of 79% was obtained from p-hydroxy derivative. Schiff bases formed were evaluated for anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. O-hydroxy derivative showed maximum anti-inflammatory activity with percentage inhibition of 50.45%. It was proved to be good analgesic agent as well. It was concluded that Schiff bases containing hydroxyl group showed promising activity as compared to chloro derivatives.

Quinazolinone is an important heterocyclic compound with nitrogen as a part of the ring (Arora et al., 2011). 2-Quinazolinone and 4-Quinazolinone are the two structural isomers. Out of the two isomers, 4-isomer is present in most of the compounds (Kumar et al., 2012). The Quinazolin-4-(3H)-one and its analogues have shown a wide range of biological activities such as anti-tumour, sedative, antidiabetic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticancer (Wu et al., 2010; Kashaw et al., 2010; Levien and Baker, 2009; Yesilada et al., 2004; Fawzy et al., 2008; Khalil et al., 2003). They are frequently used in medicine for example Methaqualone, Afloqualone, Diproqualone, Fluproquazone, Tiacrilast, Halofuginone and Raltitrexed possessing different biological activities (Smyth et al., 1973; Ochiai and Ishida, 1982; Audeval et al., 1988; Wheatley, 1982; Welton et al., 1986; Sundrud et al., 2009; Widemann et al., 1999). It is a versatile lead molecule for the design of potential bioactive agents. They show their anti-inflammatory and analgesic action by inhibiting the microsomal prostaglandin E2-synthase 1 (mPGES-1) which is a key enzyme of the arachidonic acid cascade. Its product PGE2 plays an important role in various inflammatory processes, pain, fever and cancer. Selective inhibition of mPGES-1 might be a promising step to avoid cyclooxygenase-related effects and reduction of PGE2 will make them a good anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents (Rorsch et al., 2012).

Schiff base is also called as azomethine and secondary aldimines having general formula:

R1R2C = NR3

where, R is an organic side chain. Reflux of mixture of aldehyde (or ketone) and amine in organic medium leads to synthesis of Schiff bases (Bendale et al., 2011). Schiff bases that contain aryl substituents having effective conjugation are substantially more stable and more readily synthesized while those which contain alkyl substituent are relatively unstable. They have been found to possess various pharmacological activities such as antimalarial, anticancer, anti-microbial, antitubercular, anti-inflammatory and antiviral (Harpstrite et al., 2008; Ghorab et al., 2012; Saravanan et al., 2010a; Ferreira et al., 2009; Jayakumarswamy et al., 2011; Chinnasamy et al., 2010). They are important not only in medical chemistry but also in organic synthetic chemistry. They are the important compound owing to their wide range of biological activities and industrial application (Wang et al., 2008).

The past studies revealed that the Schiff bases of 2-phenylquinazolin-4-(3H)-one possess various biological activities. In this study some novel Schiff bases of 3-amino-6,8-diiodo-2-phenylquinazolin-4(3H)-one with anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities were synthesized. This work was based on the fact that several quinazolinone derivatives have potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect (Mariappan et al., 2011; Mosaad et al., 2010).

Anti-inflammatory activity: Carrageenan-induced rat paw edema: The carrageenan-induced rat paw edema assay was carried out according to Winter et al. (1962). Wistar rats were divided into 8 groups each consisting of 6 animals (Gill et al., 2010):

Group I: Disease control: Carrageenan (1%) was administered in the plantar surface of rat (p.o.)
Group II: Standard: Suspension of Diclofenac sodium (10 mg kg-1) in 1% gum acacia (p.o.)+ Carrageenan
Group III to VIII: Test: Suspension of test compounds 5a-5f, respectively (200 mg kg-1) in 1% Gum acacia (p.o.)+carrageenan

Edema was induced on the left hind paw of the rats by subplantar injection of 0.1 mL of a solution of 1% (w/v) carrageenin in a 0.9% NaCl (w/v). The paw volume was measured at intervals of 60, 120, 180 min by the mercury displacement method using a plethysmograph after administration of the suspension of test compounds in 1% Gum acacia orally. The average paw edema volume of all the groups were calculated and compared with that of control. The percentage inhibition of paw edema in drug treated group was compared with the carrageenan control group and calculated according to the following equation:

where, Vc is the inflammatory increase in paw volume of control group of animals and Vt is the inflammatory increase in paw volume of drug-treated animals.

Analgesic activity: Swiss albino mice of either sex were divided into 8 groups each consisting of 6 animals:

Group I: Control: One percent gum acacia (p.o.)
Group II: Standard: Suspension of Diclofenac sodium (10 mg kg-1) in 1% gum acacia (p.o.)
Group III-VIII: Test: Suspension of test compounds 5a-5f, respectively (200 mg kg-1) in 1% gum acacia (p.o.)

Eddy’s Hot plate method: The analgesic activity of the test compounds (5a-5f) were measured by hot-plate method. The rats were placed on a hot plate maintained at 55±0.5°C. The reaction time was taken as the interval from the instant animal reached the hot plate until the moment animal licked its feet or jumped out (Zakaria et al., 2006; Franzotti et al., 2001; Sahu et al., 2012). The reaction time was recorded before and after 0, 30, 60 and 90 min following oral administration of tests compounds (5a-5f) and standard drug in the form 1% Gum acacia suspension. Following groups were made and latency period in which rat responded to hot plate was calculated.

Statistical analysis: All the results were expressed as Standard Error of Means (SEM). The data was statistically analyzed by one way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey using GraphPad Prism 5 Software. The p-value <0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.


Anti-inflammatory activity: The positive control, Diclofenac and test compounds (5a-5f) significantly inhibited the paw edema response in comparison to control group. Diclofenac showed an inhibition of 66.7% after 3 h. Compound 5d showed maximum activity with an inhibition of 50.45% and compound 5a showed minimum activity with an inhibition of 38.9% after 3 h as shown in Table 2.

Analgesic activity: Diclofenac showed marked analgesic response. All the test compounds (5a-5f) also showed good analgesic activity with compound 5d having maximum activity and compound 5f with minimum analgesic activity. All values were significant with p-value <0.05 as compared to standard and control as shown in Table 3.

Past literature revealed that quinazolinone nucleus and Schiff bases of 3-aminoquinazolinone derivatives possessed anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent (Venkataraman et al., 2010; Mosaad et al., 2010; Babu and Nadendla, 2011; Tyagi et al., 1998; Mohamed et al., 2011; Saravanan et al., 2010a, 2012; Mariappan et al., 2011). In accordance with the results of past studies, the present study revealed that the Schiff bases of 6,8-diiodo derivatives were also active as anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent.

Anti-inflammatory activity: Action of carrageenan takes place as a biphasic event. Presence of edema takes place in two phases. First phase involves the release of histamine, serotonin and kinin like substances. Second phase is the accelerating phase of swelling with a release of prostaglandins. Inhibition of edema may be occurred due to the suppression of any of these chemical mediators (Emma et al., 2010). Hydroxyl derivatives showed good anti-inflammatory activity with o-hydroxy derivative showing maximum activity of 50.45%. Chloro derivatives were seem to be less potent as compared to hydroxyl derivatives with p-chloro derivative showing maximum activity of 48.15%.

Analgesic activity: The mechanism of pain transmission is very complex and many different neuromodulators and receptors could be involved. The central analgesic activity of the synthetic compounds were studied using Eddy’s Hot plate method and significantly increased reaction time was observed. Again o-hydroxy derivative showed maximum central analgesic activity.

It may be considered that Schiff bases of quinazolinone showed their anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity by inhibiting the microsomal prostaglandin E2-synthase 1 (mPGES-1) like other quinazol-4-(3H)-ones derivatives.

The maximum activity was shown by o-hydroxy phenyl derivative of quinazololinone with 6.30±0.22 retention time. Chloro substituents too showed moderate analgesic activity.

It may be concluded that Schiff bases containing hydroxyl group showed promising ant-inflammatory and analgesic activity as compared to chloro derivatives. Inhibition of microsomal prostaglandin E2-synthase 1 (mPGES-1) may be involved in their mechanism of action.
