Cisplatin often shows the drug resistance which could limit the chemotherapeutic efficacy. Thus, it is necessary to develop anticancer agents against cisplatin-resistant cancer cells. To identify pharmacophores exhibiting the cell growth inhibitory effect against cisplatin-resistant A2780/Cis ovarian cancer cells, we prepared 35 synthetic polyphenols bearing naphthalene skeleton including naphthalenyl chalcones, naphthalenyl flavones, naphthalenyl flavanones, 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)naphthalen-2-ols, naphthalen-1-yl-N-phenyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole-1-carbothioamides, and 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)naphthalen-1-ol. The correlation between their inhibitory effects and structural properties was evaluated using hologram quantitative structure activity relationship and comparative molecular field analysis. The pharmacophores derived here can lead us to design new polyphenols against the growth of cisplatin-resistant cells.
