Prostacyclin (PGI2) possesses various physiological functions, including modulation of nociception, inflammation and cardiovascular activity. Elucidation of these functions has been hampered by the absence of selective IP receptor antagonists. Two structurally distinct series of IP receptor antagonists have been developed:(More)
P2X purinoceptors are ligand-gated ion channels whose endogenous ligand is ATP. Both the P2X(3) and P2X(2/3) receptor subtypes have been shown to play an important role in the regulation of sensory function and dual P2X(3)/P2X(2/3) antagonists offer significant potential for the treatment of pain. A high-throughput screen of the Roche compound collection(More)
On the basis of screening hits (1a,b), a series of selective, high affinity prostacyclin receptor antagonists was developed. The optimized lead compound 25d [(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)-[4-(4-isopropoxybenzyl)phenyl]amine] had analgesic activity in the rat.
The purinoceptor subtypes P2X(3) and P2X(2/3) have been shown to play a pivotal role in models of various pain conditions. Identification of a potent and selective dual P2X(3)/P2X(2/3) diaminopyrimidine antagonist RO-4 prompted subsequent optimization of the template. This paper describes the SAR and optimization of the diaminopyrimidine ring and(More)
A series of amino-pyrimidines was developed based upon an initial kinase cross-screening hit from a CDK2 program. Kinase profiling and structure-based drug design guided the optimization from the initial 1,2,3-benzotriazole hit to a potent and selective JNK inhibitor, compound 24f (JNK1 and 2 IC(50)=16 and 66 nM, respectively), with bioavailability in rats(More)
Identification of singleton P2X7 inhibitor 1 from HTS gave a pharmacophore that eventually turned into potential clinical candidates 17 and 19. During development, a number of issues were successfully addressed, such as metabolic stability, plasma stability, GSH adduct formation, and aniline mutagenicity. Thus, careful modification of the molecule, such as(More)
is a sophisticated multimedia messaging service which can be used to send all forms of multimedia messages. MMS can also be used to stream audio and video files in mobile environment. In this paper, we propose the architecture, algorithm and mobile streaming system application to support a mobile telemedicine system using MMS technology. Streaming technique(More)
The Janus kinases (JAKs) are involved in multiple signaling networks relevant to inflammatory diseases, and inhibition of one or more members of this class may modulate disease activity or progression. We optimized a new inhibitor scaffold, 3-amido-5-cyclopropylpyrrolopyrazines, to a potent example with reasonable kinome selectivity, including selectivity(More)
The beta-1 adrenergic receptor (ADRB1) is a promising therapeutic target intrinsically involved in the cognitive deficits and pathological features associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Evidence indicates that ADRB1 plays an important role in regulating neuroinflammatory processes, and activation of ADRB1 may produce neuroprotective effects in(More)
Replacement of the N-butyl side-chain of lead 5-HT4 receptor antagonist 2 with propanesulfonylpiperidinyl, morpholinyl, and piperazinyl groups led to higher affinity analogs 4-6. In vitro drug metabolism screens and cassette pharmacokinetic studies in the dog led to identification of the N-methylpiperazinyl analog (6b), which displayed pharmacokinetic,(More)
