A new molecule incorporating nicotinoyl moiety, thiazolidin-4-one ring and 3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl group (a potent antioxidant moiety) was synthesized and evaluated for anti-inflammatory activity in acute as well as chronic phase models of inflammation. The compound exhibited significant anti-inflammatory activity in three experimental models of inflammation, comparable to the positive control drug, ibuprofen (CAS 15687-27-1). It is suggested that besides the hypolipidemic and antioxidant potential of the molecule, its anti-inflammatory action could possibly act as an additional mechanism of its hypothesized anti-atherosclerotic activity.
