Description: Here we report the synthesis of novel chalcone-thiazole compounds and their antifilarial activity. The antifilarial properties of these hybrids were assessed against microfilariae as well as adult worms of Brugia malayi. Among all the synthesized compounds, only two compounds, namely 4g and 4n were identified to be promising in vitro. These active compounds were tested in B. malayi-jird (Meriones unguiculatus) and B. malayi- Mastomys coucha models. Compound 4n showed 100% embryostatic effect and 49% macrofilaricidal in jirds and M. coucha models, respectively. This study provides a new structural clue for the development of novel antifilarial lead molecules.
