6-methyl-2,4-disubstituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones: a novel class of small-molecule agonists for formyl peptide receptors.
Following a ligand-based drug design approach, a potent mixed formyl peptide receptor 1 (FPR1) and formyl peptide receptor-like 1 (FPRL1) agonist (14a) and a potent and specific FPRL1 agonist (14x)Expand

Development of small molecule non-peptide formyl peptide receptor (FPR) ligands and molecular modeling of their recognition.
Formyl peptide receptors (FPRs) are G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) expressed on a variety of cell types. These receptors play an important role in the regulation of inflammatory reactions andExpand

Further studies on arylpiperazinyl alkyl pyridazinones: discovery of an exceptionally potent, orally active, antinociceptive agent in thermally induced pain.
A number of pyridazinone derivatives bearing an arylpiperazinylalkyl chain were synthesized and tested icv in a model of acute nociception induced by thermal stimuli in mice (tail flick). The mostExpand

Synthesis, enantioresolution, and activity profile of chiral 6-methyl-2,4-disubstituted pyridazin-3(2H)-ones as potent N-formyl peptide receptor agonists.
A series of chiral pyridazin-3(2H)-ones was synthesized, separated as pure enantiomers, and evaluated for N-formyl peptide receptor (FPR) agonist activity. Characterization of the purifiedExpand
