Some 1,5-diaryl-3-ethoxycarbonyl-2-methylpyrrole derivatives were obtained by reacting 1-aryl-3-ethoxycarbonylpent-1,4-diones and a suitable aniline derivative or sulfanilamide under Paal-Knorr pyrrole synthesis conditions. The cytotoxicity of the compounds was tested and all compounds, except for compound 2 h, showed a time-dependent increase in cytotoxic activity. Analgesic activities of the compounds were determined by using the tail-flick and tail-immersion methods; some of the compounds showed potent analgesic activity. © 2006 Taylor & Francis.
