Kojic acid and its derivatives as potential therapeutic agents



Kojic acid and its derivatives as potential therapeutic agents



Ceska a Slovenska Farmacie 49(6): 288-298



The review paper studies kojic acid, a secondary metabolite of fibrous fungi, as a carrier chemical structure of potential pharmaceuticals. The examined preparative procedures, physico-chemical and biologic properties, and especially the antifungal and antileukemic effects of the parent kojic acid indicate that novel potential drugs can be developed on its basis.
