The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of N-aryl-C-ethoxycarbonylnitrile imines to pyridazin-3-thione afforded novel spirothiadiazolopyridazines in moderate to good yields. The reaction occurs regioselectively at the exocyclic C=S bond. Some of the newly synthesized compounds were tested for their in vitro antitumor activity against three human and murine cell lines [human: A2780, (ovary, carcinoma), A549 (lung, carcinoma); murine: P388 (leukaemia)]. Among the series, some compounds exhibited significant growth inhibitory effects against cell lines P388.
