potential antiepileptic drugs. The goal was to achieve better neurological activity and/or
lower toxicity than displayed by a series of 2-alkyl-3-aryl-4(3H)-quinazolinones prepared
previously in our research group. From the pharmacological testing data of these target
compounds, we have found that the additional nitrogen at the C-8 position of the quinazolinone
framework increased the anticonvulsant activity. However, the neurological toxicity increased
as well. The anticonvulsant and neurotoxic activity seen in the variuos 2-alkyl side chains
and 3-aryl substituents incorporated into these new pyridopyrimidones was consistent with the
activity observed with the same substituents on the 4(3H)-quinazolinones. The 3-aryl group
consists of various ortho-substituted phenyl rings, while the 2-alkyl chain consists of a
2-(2-aryl-2-oxo)ethyl or 2-arylethenyl group.
