Abstract

A reinvestigation of the radiation protection activity of S-[2-[(2'-carbamylethyl)amino]ethyl] lithium hydrogen phosphorothioate (4a) revealed that this compound possessed good (70% protection at a dose of 600 mg/kg) activity. The thione and imino bioisosteres of 4, S-[2-(2'-thiocarbamylethylamino)ethyl] lithium hydrogen phosphorothioate (13a) and S-[2-(2'-amidinoethylamino)ethyl] phosphorothioic acid (18b) showed 100% protection at doses of 300 and 150 mg/kg, respectively. The N-methyl (4b) and tert-butyl (4c) analogues of amide 4a, the N-methyl (13b) analogue of the thioamide 13a, the N-methyl (18a) analogue of amidine (18b), and the cyclic amidine S-[2-[[2'-(4,5-dihydroimidozoyl)ethyl]amino]ethyl] lithium hydrogen phosphorothioate (21) all showed 80% protection at the highest dose tested
