13α-Estrone derivatives containing various substituents on C-3 and C-17 were synthesized, and evaluated by means of MTT assays for in vitro antiproliferative activity against a panel of human adherent cancer cell lines (HeLa, MCF-7, A2780 and A431). Compounds with N-benzyltriazolylmethoxy moieties on C-3 proved to be more potent than their 3-hydroxy or 3-ether counterparts. Some triazoles exerted substantial cytostatic effects against particular tumor cell lines, with submicromolar IC50 values.
