Sera from 104 children with JA with different onset-types of disease were evaluated for 19S IgM RF by the LFT , hidden 19S IgM RF by the hemolytic assay, ANA by HEp-2 cell substrate, and levels of IC by the C1qSPA . Their relationship to active disease was determined. Classical 19S IgM RF were detected by the LFT in only seven patients. All were late-onset(More)
A series of platinum complexes of the form cis-M[PtA2(PC)] (I) has been prepared and tested for antitumor activity in mice. Compounds in this series contain either two monodentate amine ligands (A), such as NH3 or isopropylamine, or one bidentate diamine (A2), such as ethylenediamine, 1,2-diaminopropane, or 1,2-diaminocyclohexane. The PC ligand is a(More)
The application of parallel synthesis to lead optimization programs in drug discovery has been an ongoing challenge since the first reports of library synthesis. A number of approaches to the application of parallel array synthesis to lead optimization have been attempted over the years, ranging from widespread deployment by (and support of) individual(More)
Continuing structure-activity studies were performed on the 2,3,4, 5-tetrahydro-1-(imidazol-4-ylalkyl)-1,4-benzodiazepine farnesyltransferase (FT) inhibitors. These studies demonstrated that a 3(R)-phenylmethyl group, a hydrophilic 7-cyano group, and a 4-sulfonyl group bearing a variety of substituents provide low-nanomolar FT inhibitors with cellular(More)
A series of benzodiazepine-based inhibitors of mitochondrial F(1)F(0) ATP hydrolase were prepared and evaluated for their ability to selectively inhibit the enzyme in the forward direction. Compounds from this series showed excellent potency and selectivity for ATP hydrolase versus ATP synthase, suggesting a potentially beneficial profile useful for the(More)
2,3,4,5-Tetrahydro-1-(imidazol-4-ylalkyl)-1,4-benzodiazepines were found to be potent inhibitors of farnesyltransferase (FT). A hydrophobic substituent at the 4-position of the benzodiazepine, linked via a hydrogen bond acceptor, was important to enzyme inhibitory activity. An aryl ring at position 7 or a hydrophobic group linked to the 8-position through(More)
A series of novel quinoxaline heterocycle containing angiotensin II receptor antagonist analogs were prepared. This heterocycle was coupled to the biphenyl moiety via an oxygen atom linker instead of a carbon atom. Many of these analogs exhibit very potent activity and long duration of effect. Interestingly, the N-oxide quinoxaline analog was more potent(More)
A series of substituted guanidine derivatives were prepared and evaluated as potent and selective inhibitors of mitochondrial F(1)F(0) ATP hydrolase. The initial thiourethane derived lead molecules possessed intriguing in vitro pharmacological profiles, though contained moieties considered non-drug-like. Analogue synthesis efforts led to compounds with(More)
A series of diphenylpyridylethanamine (DPPE) derivatives was identified exhibiting potent CETP inhibition. Replacing the labile ester functionality in the initial lead 7 generated a series of amides and ureas. Further optimization of the DPPE series for potency resulted in the discovery of cyclopentylurea 15d, which demonstrated a reduction in cholesterol(More)
