Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a main cause of chronic liver disease, leading to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The objective of our research was to develop effective agents against viral replication. We have previously identified the hydrazideehydrazone scaffold as a promising hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatocelluler inhibitor. Herein we describe the design a number of 20,40-difluoro-4-hydroxy-N'-(arylmethylidene) biphenyl-3-carbohydrazide (3a-t) as anti-HCV and anticancer agents. Results from evaluation of anti-HCV activity indicated that most of the synthesized hydrazone derivatives inhibited viral replication in the Huh7/Rep-Feo1b and Huh 7.5-FGR-JCI-Rluc2A reporter systems. Antiproliferative activities of increasing concentrations of 20,40-difluoro-4-hydroxy-N'-(2-pyridyl methylidene)biphenyl-3-carbohydrazide 3b and diflunisal (2.5e40 μM) were assessed in liver cancer cell lines (Huh7, HepG2, Hep3B, Mahlavu, FOCUS and SNU-475) with sulforhodamine B assay for 72 h. Compound 3b with 2-pyridinyl group in the hydrazone part exhibited promising cytotoxic activity against all cell lines with IC50 values of 10, 10.34 16.21 4.74, 9.29 and 8.33 μM for Huh7, HepG2, Hep3B, Mahlavu, FOCUS and SNU-475 cells, respectively, and produced dramatic cell cycle arrest at SubG1/G0 phase as an indicator of apoptotic cell death induction. © 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS.
