This paper describes the development a series of peptidyl trifluoromethyl ketone inhibitors of human leukocyte elastase which are found to have excellent pharmacological profiles. Methods have been developed that allow for the synthesis of these inhibitors in stereochemically pure form. Two of these compounds, 1k and 1l, have high levels of oral(More)
The neurokinins are neuropeptides that elicit their effect through three GPCRs called NK(1), NK(2), and NK(3). Compounds 5 and 6 are dual hNK(1) (K(i) of 0.7 and 0.3 nM) and hNK(3) (K(i) of 2.9 and 1.7 nM) antagonists. Both compounds exhibit an insurmountable mode of antagonism at hNK(1), whereas at hNK(3), they differ in that 5 is an insurmountable but 6 a(More)
The NK3 receptor is a GPCR that is prominently expressed in limbic areas of the brain, many of which have been implicated in schizophrenia. Phase II clinical trials in schizophrenia with two selective NK3 antagonists (osanetant and talnetant) have demonstrated significant improvement in positive symptoms. The objective of this study was to characterize the(More)
