Abstract

Indenoisoquinolinediones are a class of non-camptothecin topoisomerase I poisons that display marked cytotoxic and potent antitumor properties. Currently three indenoisoquinoline derivatives LMP400 (indotecan, NSC724998), LMP776 (indimitecan, NSC725776) and LMP744 (MJ-III-65, NSC706744) have been poised for Phase 2 clinical trials. In the last two decades, various synthetic methodologies for the syntethesis of indenoisoquinolines and its analogs have been developed. These compounds are of great research significance owing to their novel structures and broad biological activities including antitumor, cytotoxic and topomerase I inhibitory properties. Thus, this review addresses some of the most important indenoisoquinolines synthesis methodologies and their cytotoxicity, antitumor properties and topomerase I inhibitory efficacy during the period 2015-2020. The ample synthetic methodologies reviwed herein along with the bioactivities of these compounds might serve as a nice refence to facilitate future research.
