A novel series of N-alkyl-substituted cyclic sulfamides were developed from a screening hit. Chemistries were developed which allowed surveys of N-alkyl groups and amines resulting in the identification of N-trifluoroethyl-substituted cyclic sulfamides with good in vitro and in vivo gamma-secretase activity. One compound with subnanomolar activity elicited(More)
In this report, inhibitors of the gamma-secretase enzyme have been exploited to characterize the antiproliferative relationship between target inhibition and cellular responses in Notch-dependent human T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) cell lines. Inhibition of gamma-secretase led to decreased Notch signaling, measured by endogenous NOTCH(More)
The development of potent gamma-secretase inhibitors having substituted heterocycles attached to a benzobicyclo[4.2.1]nonane core is described. This work led to the identification of [6S,9R,11R]-2',3',4',5,5',6,7,8,9,10-decahydro-2-(5-(4-fluorophenyl)-1-methylpyrazol-3-yl)-5'-(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)spiro[6,9-methanobenzocyclooctene-11,3'-[1,2,5]thiadiazole](More)
We describe here the identification and characterization of 2 novel inhibitors of the fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family of receptor tyrosine kinases. The compounds exhibit selective inhibition of FGFR over the closely related VEGFR2 receptor in cell lines and in vivo. The pharmacologic profile of these inhibitors was defined using a panel of(More)
Title Potent, selective inhibitors of FGFR define FGF dependence in pre-clinical cancer models.

Bridgehead substituted derivatives of bicyclo[4.2.1]nonanes were synthesized and shown to be potent inhibitors of gamma-secretase. Two related series were synthesized to explore the SARs. More potent compounds were found in the non-benzofused series compared with the benzofused series. One compound from each series showed good exposure in the hepatic portal(More)
There is increasing evidence that compounds with selectivity for gamma-aminobutyric acid(A) (GABA(A)) alpha2- and/or alpha3-subtypes may retain the desirable anxiolytic activity of nonselective benzodiazepines but possess an improved side effect profile. Herein we describe a novel series of GABA(A) alpha2/alpha3 subtype-selective agonists leading to the(More)
Herein we describe a series of tetrahydrobenzotriazoles as novel, potent metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGlu5) positive allosteric modulators (PAMs). Exploration of the SAR surrounding the tetrahydrobenzotriazole core ultimately led to the identification of 29 as a potent mGlu5 PAM with a low maximal glutamate potency fold shift, acceptable in(More)
