- A series of novel 5-O-(4′,6′-O-dimodified)-mycaminose 14-membered ketolides were assessed for their in vitro antibacterial activities against a panel of sensitive and resistant pathogens. Compound 1 and compound 2, two ester analogs, showed the best antibacterial activities against several macrolide-sensitive and macrolide-resistant strains. These results indicated that introducing ester to 6-OH and a small volume ether substituent to the 4-OH of mycaminose could improve the antibacterial activities of ketolides.
