Removal of the basic piperazine nitrogen atom, introduction of a solubilising end group and partial reduction of the triazolopyridazine moiety in the previously-described lead androgen receptor downregulator 6-[4-(4-cyanobenzyl)piperazin-1-yl]-3-(trifluoromethyl)[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-b]pyridazine (1) addressed hERG and physical property issues, and led to… (More)
T tubes are commonly used to splint biliary anastomoses after liver transplantation. Although several advantages are claimed for this approach, there is undoubtedly some iatrogenic morbidity associated with the use of T tubes in this situation. We have evaluated 120 consecutive biliary reconstructions after liver transplant, the majority of which were… (More)
The identification, synthesis and SAR of a novel series of glucokinase activators is described. The interplay between lipophilicity, potency and physical properties is discussed, and compound 22 highlighted as having a suitable balance. In vivo pharmacokinetic and acute efficacy studies on this compound are also presented.
Tie-2 is a receptor tyrosine kinase which is involved in angiogenesis and thereby growth of human tumours. The discovery and SAR of a novel class of imidazole-vinyl-pyrimidine kinase inhibitors, which inhibit Tie-2 in vitro is reported. Their synthesis was carried out by condensation of imidazole aldehydes with methyl pyrimidines. These compounds are… (More)
A modular and scalable approach to pyrimidine- and purine-containing constrained ethyl (cEt) nucleosides is demonstrated. Minimizing stereochemical adjustments and protecting group manipulations, diacetone glucose is converted to two representative cEt nucleosides via a functionalized, common intermediate. The retrosynthetic approach to this complex class… (More)
Several alpha-substituted N-carbethoxytropinones have been evaluated as catalysts for asymmetric epoxidation of alkenes with Oxone, via a dioxirane intermediate. alpha-Fluoro-N-carbethoxytropinone (2) has been studied in detail and is an efficient catalyst which does not suffer from Baeyer-Villiger decomposition and can be used in relatively low loadings.… (More)
play novel properties as materials. Although there are a variety of methods known for the preparation of sulfones, the majority of these processes feature associated limitations. For example, oxidation of the corresponding sulfide relies on functional-group compatibility with oxidizing agents and the availability of catalysts to promote selectivity for… (More)
The synthesis of a triglycosylated helical foldamer based on a combination of cyclopentyl- and pyrrolidinyl-based amino acids is described. This structure is stable in water, maintaining as it does a series of carbohydrate units in proximity to one another, and represents the basis of a new approach to the study of carbohydrate-carbohydrate interactions.
Sulfonyl-derived functional groups populate a broad range of useful molecules and materials, and despite a variety of preparative methods being available, processes which introduce the most basic sulfonyl building block, sulfur dioxide, using catalytic methods, are rare. Described herein is a simple reaction system consisting of the sulfur dioxide surrogate… (More)
Although various syntheses of the nucleic acid bases exist and ribose is a product of the formose reaction, no prebiotically plausible methods for attaching pyrimidine bases to ribose to give nucleosides have been described. Kinetic and thermodynamic factors are thought to mitigate against such condensation reactions in aqueous solution. This inability to… (More)
