The design of potent and selective non-peptide antagonists of endothelin-1 (ET-1) and its related isopeptides are important tools defining the role of ET in human diseases. In this report we will describe the detailed structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies that led to the discovery of a potent series of butenolide ETA selective antagonists. Starting(More)
Medical imaging is an invaluable tool for diagnosis, surgical guidance, and assessment of treatment efficacy. The Network for Translational Research (NTR) for Optical Imaging consists of four research groups working to "bridge the gap" between lab discovery and clinical use of fluorescence- and photoacoustic-based imaging devices used with imaging(More)
Continued development around our ETA-selective endothelin (ET) antagonist 1 (CI-1020) has led to the synthesis of analogues with improved aqueous solubility profiles. Poor solubility characteristics displayed by 1 required a complex buffered formulation in order to conduct iv studies. To overcome the use of specific iv formulations for preclinical studies(More)
The development of nonpeptide, low molecular weight antagonists with high potency, oral activity, and selectivity is an important objective to adequately define the potential role of endothelin (ET) and its isopeptides in human diseases. This report describes the structure-activity relationships, ETA/ETB selectivity, and pharmacokinetics of the PD 155080(More)
