Several, substituted 5-nitroimidazole analogs were compared for efficacy against experimental Trypanosoma cruzi infections in mice. These studies indicated that the efficacy of substituted 5- nitroimidazoles varies significantly with minor changes in structure. One compound, 3-(1-methyl-5-nitroimidazol-2-yl)-3α,4,5,6,7,7α -hexahydro-1,2-benzisoxazole, MK-436, was the most potent in eliminating parasitemia and myocardiopathy. Other 5-nitroimidazole analogs had varying degrees of efficacy.
