Other known environmental risk factors for LHON are smoking, alcohol, and the use of some antibiotics (i.e., macrolids, aminoglicosides, Ethambutol, isoniazide, and Linezolid) (39, 40). [source, 2014]
Linezolid azide analogue 9 was reacted with propargyl alcohol, phenylacetylene, and alkyne fluorophores 24 and 26 in the presence of copper sulfate and sodium Ascorbate to provide the corresponding triazole derivatives 27, 28, 29, and 30, respectively (Scheme 3). [source, 2014]
