The discovery of new highly potent and selective triple reuptake inhibitors is reported. The new classes of 1-(aryl)-6-[alkoxyalkyl]-3-azabicyclo[3.1.0]hexanes and 6-(aryl)-6-[alkoxyalkyl]-3-azabicyclo[3.1.0]hexanes are described together with detailed SAR. Appropriate decoration of the scaffolds was achieved with the help of a triple reuptake inhibitor(More)
A highly deactivated octadecyl-bonded silica column and a mobile phase consisting of an water-methanol mixture in the range of blood pH and ionic strength are used to correlate log kappa' with biological activity for a series of sulfonamides and barbiturates. The results were compared to literature methods by using retention volume (VR) and retention(More)
The enzymatic glucuronidation of 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT) catalyzed by human liver microsomal UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.17, UDPGT) was inhibited by a number of nucleoside analogs. The inhibitory potency of these nucleoside analogs correlated with their hydrophobicity (r2 = 0.90, N = 13). Since similar results were obtained with(More)
The development of a method for determining hydrophobicity constants for small, organic molecules by reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RPLC) is presented. The method uses capacity ratios measured at a number of different compositions of methanol to obtain derived values, denoted log k'w, upon which a new scale of hydrophobicity constants can be(More)
A series of phthalimide and isoindolinone derivatives bridged to 4-(1,2-benzisothiazol-3-yl)-1-piperazinyl was prepared. The compounds were evaluated in vitro at dopamine D2 and serotonin 5-HT1a and 5-HT2 receptors and in vivo for their ability to antagonize the apomorphine-induced climbing response in mice. The effects of bridge length and conformation on(More)
Stereorandom and diastereoselective syntheses of a novel 1,2,3,4,4a,5,6,10b-octahydro-1,10-phenanthroline ring system are described. Derivatives of all four diastereomers were prepared and isolated in >98% ee. The pure enantiomers were compared in order to determine the preferred absolute and relative configuration required for optimal anti-HIV activity.(More)
The disposition of the antihistamine, triprolidine, was studied in male and female CD-1 mice after a single oral 50 mg/kg dose of [14C]triprolidine HCl. Urine and feces collected over 72 hr postdosing were analyzed for total radiocarbon, and for parent drug and metabolites by radiochromatography. Structures of metabolites were determined by GC/MS, direct(More)
2-(Anilinomethyl)imidazolines with 2'-esters or 2'-amides are potent agonists of the cloned human alpha(1)-adrenoceptors in vitro. The size and shape of the ortho substituent can have significant effects on the potency, efficacy, and subtype selectivity of these 2-(anilinomethyl)imidazolines. alpha(1A)-subtype selective agonists have been identified.
Starting from an established series of non-steroidal glucocorticoid receptor (GR) agonists, a large array was designed where a metabolically labile benzoxazinone moiety was replaced. Initial hits bound to GR but lacked agonist activity. Following two further iterations, potent GR agonists were discovered with 20D1E1 having NFkappaB agonism pIC(50) 8.8(More)
