Phosphatidylinositol-5-phosphate 4-kinase, type II, beta (PIP5K2B) is linked to the pathogenesis of obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes. Here, we describe the identification of a novel pyrimidine-2,4-diamine PIP5K2B inhibitor, designated SAR088. The compound was identified by high-throughput screening and subsequently characterized in vitro and in(More)
AIM To compare the therapeutic efficacy of SAR407899 with the current standard treatment for hypertension [an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitor and a calcium channel blocker] and compare the frequency and severity of the hypertension-related end-organ damage. METHODS Long-term pharmacological characte-rization of SAR407899 has been performed(More)
Structure-based drug design (SBDD) is a powerful and widely used approach to optimize affinity of drug candidates. With the recently introduced INPHARMA method, the binding mode of small molecules to their protein target can be characterized even if no spectroscopic information about the protein is known. Here, we show that the combination of the(More)
