A series of 6-substituted 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-5-methylimidazo[4,5,1-jk][1,4]benzodiazepin- 2(1H)-ones (9) have been synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit the replication of the HIV-1 virus in MT-4 cells. Two synthetic methods are described, one of which allows the synthesis of single enantiomers of the final products. A structure-activity study(More)
Generally, antipsychotic agents are dopamine receptor blocking agents that also block conditioned avoidance responding (CAR) in the rat. Recently, however, both (Q-methoxyphenyl)piperazine (OMPP, 1h) and (m-chlorophenyl)piperazine (MCPP, 1o) have been reported to block conditioned avoidance responding in the rat although neither has dopamine receptor(More)
Although thrombin has been extensively researched with many examples of potent and selective inhibitors, the key characteristics of oral bioavailability and long half-life have been elusive. We report here a novel series non-peptidic phenyl-based, highly potent, highly selective and orally bioavailable thrombin inhibitors using oxyguanidines as(More)
We describe a new class of potent, non-amide-based small molecule thrombin inhibitors in which an amidinohydrazone is used as a guanidine bioisostere on a non-peptide scaffold. Compound 4 exhibits nM inhibition of thrombin, is selective for thrombin, and shows 60 and 23% bioavailability in rabbits and dogs, respectively. Crystallographic analysis of 4 bound(More)
Recently, we reported on a series of arylpiperazines 4 which exhibit high affinity for the serotonin 5-HT-1A and 5-HT-1B binding sites. Although these compounds interact weakly with dopamine D-1 and D-2 receptors, they are reasonably potent in inhibiting conditioned avoidance responding (CAR) in the rat, an indication of potential antipsychotic activity.(More)
