BACKGROUND No previous published Australian study on the epidemiology of mandibular fractures has comprehensively shown the differences existing between indigenous and nonindigenous populations. Cairns Base Hospital, which services both the metropolitan city of Cairns and remote regions of Far North Queensland, provides the perfect environment for(More)
Syntheses of the potent angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (3S)-1-(carboxymethyl)-3-[[(1S)-1-carboxy-3-phenylpropyl]amino]- 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-[1]benzazepin-2-one (4b; CGS 14831) and the related monoester prodrug (17a; CGS 14824A) are described together with preparative details for six- and eight-membered ring analogues. Inhibitory potencies and in(More)
The synthesis of two thiophene-containing analogues of mianserin, i.e., 1,2,3,4,10,13b-hexahydro-2-methylpiperazino[1,2-a]thieno[2, 3-c][1]benzazepine (2), and the corresponding [3,2-c] isomer (12) is described. The key step in the synthesis is the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction of the N-lithio derivative of 1-methyl-3-(2-thienyl)piperazine (4)(More)
The preparation of a series of 3-amino-2-oxo-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-1-benzazepine-1-acetic acid derivatives 5a-y by reductive amination of 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-1-benzazepine-2,3-dione (7) with L-amino acid derivatives is described. The compounds were tested for inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme. The structure-activity profile of the series is(More)
