A series of (3R,4R)-pyrrolidine-3,4-dicarboxylic acid amides was investigated with respect to their factor Xa inhibitory activity, selectivity, pharmacokinetic properties, and ex vivo antithrombotic activity. The clinical candidate from this series, R1663, exhibits excellent selectivity against a panel of serine proteases and good pharmacokinetic properties(More)
Cyclothialidine (1, Ro 09-1437) is a potent DNA gyrase inhibitor that was isolated from Streptomyces filipinensis NR0484 and is a member of a new family of natural products. It acts by competitively inhibiting the ATPase activity exerted by the B subunit of DNA gyrase but barely exhibits any growth inhibitory activity against intact bacterial cells,(More)
A recently identified DPP-IV inhibitor (1) was found to induce phospholipidosis and to inhibit CYP3A4. A small series of less lipophilic and less amphiphilic analogues was synthesized in an effort to overcome these issues. One compound from this series was equipotent to 1, did not induce phospholipidosis and showed a reduced CYP3A4 inhibition.
The DNA gyrase inhibitor cyclothialidine had been shown to be a valuable lead structure for the discovery of new antibacterial classes able to overcome bacterial resistance to clinically used drugs. Bicyclic lactone derivatives containing in their 12-14-membered ring a thioamide functionality were reported previously to exhibit potent antibacterial activity(More)
Pyrido pyrimidinones are selective agonists of the human high affinity niacin receptor GPR109A (HM74A). They show no activity on the highly homologous low affinity receptor GPR109B (HM74). Starting from a high throughput screening hit the in vitro activity of the pyrido pyrimidinones was significantly improved providing lead compounds suitable for further(More)

Summarizing the literature of the past 25 years, we present a survey of the pharmacological effects of cannabis, which includes the pharmacological particularities of cannabis as a composition of substances with tetra-hydro-cannabinol as main component, the experimentally proved effects on animal cells, the experimentally and clinically proved damages to(More)
