The synthesis and analgesic testing of 3-[4-(1,1-dimethylheptyl)-2-hydroxyphenyl]cyclohexanol (1) are described. Prior (SAR) studies led us to conclude that the pyran ring of 9-nor-9 beta-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol (HHC) was not necessary for the expression of biological activity in this series of cannabinoids. Analysis of models and the use of molecular(More)
Based on the hypothesis that analgetic activity is a dissociable feature of the cannabinoid molecule, we examined modifications of the side chain, the phenolic moiety, and, most significantly, structures that lack the benzopyran functionality present in THC and (--)-9-nor-9 beta-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol (HHC). A new grouping, the 1-methyl-4-phenylbutyloxy(More)
5,8-Disubstituted 1-tetralone Mannich bases represent semirigid variants of classical (i.e., chlorpromazine) neuroleptic agents. 8-Chloro-5-methoxy-2-morpholinomethyl-1-tetralone exhibits neuroleptic potency in the thiothixene range in animal models. Of greater potential interest, however, is the analgesic potency of the(More)
The preparation and testing of the two racemic diastereoisomers and the four optically active enantiomers of the title compound in in vitro and in vivo models for determining potential antipsychotic activity are described. Both racemic diastereoisomers and two of the four chiral enantiomers are potent and long-acting neuroleptic compounds.
Based on the report of morphine-like analgetic activity of 9-nor-9 beta-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol (HHC), we undertook a study of structural modifications of the C-3 side chain of HHC to optimize the analgetic activity. We ultimately examined four distinct classes of side chains: (1) alkyl (la-lc), (2) arylalkyl (ld-lh), (3) alkoxy (li-lj) and (4)(More)
Interesting analgesic activity approaching that of meperidine and codeine was observed in standard animal models for 8-chloro-3,4-dihydro-5-methoxy-2-pyrrolidinomethylnaphthalene (compound 7). This compound was orally effective and its analgesic activity was not reversed by the opiate antagonist, naloxone. A limited number of other 2-aminomethyl analogues(More)
A series of 5-aryltetrahydro-gamma-carbolines was prepared by a novel N-arylation procedure and tested for neuroleptic activity in a rat antiamphetamine model. The systematic exploration of structural parameters leading to 8-fluoro-5-(4-fluorophenyl)-2-[4-hydroxy-4-(4-fluorophenyl)butyl]-2,3,5-tetrahydro-1H-pyrido[4,3-b]indole (CP-36,584, flutroline), a(More)
Substitution of position 2 of the 4a,9b-trans-2,3,4,4a,5,9b-hexahydro-1H-pyrido[4,3-b]indole nucleus with omega-carboxamidoalkyl substituents leads to compounds with exceedingly potent neuroleptic activity in in vitro and in vivo models. Although duration of activity is not as long as that of the analogous 4-hydroxy-4-(4-fluorophenyl)butyl derivatives(More)
