Abstract: 
Therapeutic potential of nandrolone and its derivatives against leishmaniasis has been studied. A number of derivatives of nandrolone (1) were synthesized through biotransformation. Microbial transformation of nandrolone (1) with Cunninghamella echinulata and Cunninghamella blakesleeana yielded three new metabolites, 10β,12β,17β-trihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (2), 10β,16α,17β-trihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (3), and 6β,10β,17β-trihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (4), along with four known metabolites, 10β,17β-dihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (5), 6β,17β-dihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (6) 10β-hydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3,17-dione (7) and 16β,17β-dihydroxy-19-nor-4-androsten-3-one (8). Compounds 1–8 were evaluated for their anti-leishmanial activity. Compounds 1 and 8 showed a significant activity in vitro against Leishmania major. The leishmanicidal potential of compounds 1–8 (IC50 = 32.0 ± 0.5, >100, 77.39 ± 5.52, 70.90 ± 1.16, 54.94 ± 1.01, 80.23 ± 3.39, 61.12 ± 1.39 and 29.55 ± 1.14 μM, respectively) can form the basis for the development of effective therapies against the protozoal tropical disease leishmaniasis.
