Novel levofloxacin-containing hybrids carrying a 5-(nitroaryl)-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl group were synthesized and evaluated in vitro against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Preliminary data indicated that levofloxacin-nitrofuran and levofloxacin-nitroimidazole hybrids have a potent activity against Gram-positive organisms with enhanced anti-staphylococcal activity compared with the parent quinolone (N-desmethyl levofloxacin).
