Among the newly synthesized 1,1,2,2-tetraalkyl-1,2-diphenylethanes, 1,1,2,2-tetramethyl-1,2-bis(4'-hydroxyphenyl)ethane (23) and 1,1,2,2-tetramethyl-1,2-bis(3'-hydroxyphenyl)ethane (26) were the most active compounds regarding estradiol receptor affinity, exhibiting Ka values of 0.73 X 10(8) and 0.67 X 10(8) M-1, respectively. In vivo, 23 and 26 showed only very small uterotrophic activity in the mouse. They strongly inhibited (73%) the estrone-stimulated mouse uterine growth. Tested on the 9,10-dimethyl-1,2-benzanthracene induced hormone-dependent mammary adenocarcinoma of the Sprague-Dawley rat, compounds 23 and 26 exhibited a dose-dependent inhibition of the tumor growth, having a strong effect at a dose of 20 (mg/kg)/day (compound 23).
