1. Hoe 140, a recently described bradykinin B2 antagonist, and NPC 567 from an earlier generation of bradykinin B2 antagonists, were tested in rabbit and sheep isolated blood vessels. 2. In rabbit jugular vein, a bradykinin B2 preparation, NPC 567 was an antagonist (apparent pA2: 8.67 +/- 0.16) with marked residual agonistic activity (log[EC50]: -7.29 +/-(More)
Using a solution-phase parallel synthesis strategy, a series of non-peptide somatostatin analogues were prepared, and their binding affinities to the five human somatostatin receptor subtypes (sst(1-5)) were determined. Imidazolyl derivatives 2 were found to bind with moderate affinity but with high selectivity to the sst(3) receptor subtype. Further(More)
Bradykinin is a potent inflammatory mediator which may be involved in various airway diseases. A selective and potent antagonist of the bradykinin B2 receptor has recently been discovered (HOE 140: D-Arg-[Hyp3,Thi5,D-Tic7,Oic8]bradykinin). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potency of this compound in isolated human tissue (bronchus, pulmonary(More)
The effects of thrombin and a peptide mimicking the amino terminus of its receptor, Res (42-55), on vascular reactivity were compared in isolated canine blood vessels. In saphenous veins contracted with endothelin-1, both thrombin and Res (42-55) caused relaxation in rings with endothelium and contraction in rings without endothelium. In coronary arteries,(More)
The purpose of our work was to evaluate the role of bradykinin B2 receptors in the early phase (first 3 h) of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced shock in anesthetized and mechanically ventilated rabbits and to determine if HOE 140, a specific, potent, and long-acting bradykinin B2-receptor antagonist, could improve survival in two murine models of(More)
The effects of S 16118 (p-guanidobenzoyl-[Hyp3,Thi5,D-Tic7, Oic8]bradykinin (BK)], a new, potent and long-acting BK B2 antagonist, were tested in some in vivo models of inflammation. In rats, S 16118 (0.1 and 1 mg/kg) given i.v. or s.c. delayed the edema formation induced by intraplantar carrageenan injections up to 4 hr after administration, confirming the(More)
A series of pseudopeptide analogs of the substance P-like hexapeptide Ava-Phe-Phe-Gly-Leu-Met-NH2 was produced by N alpha-protection, introduction of the thiomethylene bond, of D- and non-proteinogenic amino acids, and alteration of the side chain of tryptophan. Synthesis of the pseudopeptides on a solid phase was successfully improved by direct formation(More)
We report on the synthesis and the pharmacological properties of a new series of tachykinin antagonists based on the pseudopeptide pharmacophore cyclo[-Abo-Asp(D-Trp-Phe-N(Me)Bzl)-] which contains the 2-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octane-3(S)-carboxylic acid (Abo) residue. Variation of the substituents on the tryptophan indole nitrogen was shown to modulate water(More)
We report on the synthesis and pharmacological properties of a new series of thrombin inhibitors derived from hirudin carboxyl-terminal fragments. Two (arylphosphono)phenylalanines, p-PO3H2-L-Phe1 and m-PO3H2-L-Tyr, and one (carboxymethyl)phenylalanine, p-CH2COOH-L-Phe, were prepared and incorporated into position 63 of the modified hirudin's C-terminal(More)
We report here on the synthesis and pharmacological properties of a new series of small linear and cyclic peptides derived from the five C-terminal amino acid residues of second-generation bradykinin receptor antagonists. Variations of the two first residues of the pentapeptide (Thi-Ser-D-Tic-Oic-Arg) were shown to modulate the biological activities of the(More)
