1. Oxcarbazepine (OXC), the 10-keto analogue of carbamazepine (CBZ), has similar anticonvulsant efficacy and possibly improved patient tolerability. Unlike CBZ, it is metabolised by reduction and may not induce hepatic monooxygenase enzymes. 2. Serum concentrations of OXC and its active metabolite 10-OH-carbazepine (10-OH-CZ) were followed after a single(More)
A novel class of Cathepsin B inhibitors has been developed with a 1,2,4-thiadiazole heterocycle as the thiol trapping pharmacophore. Several compounds with different dipeptide recognition sequence (i.e., P1'-P2'=Leu-Pro-OH or P2-P1=Cbz-Phe-Ala) at the C5 position and with different substituents (i.e., OMe, Ph, or COOH) at the C3 position of the(More)
A new class of selective FXIIIa inhibitors with a bicyclic [1,2,4]-thiadiazole pharmacophore is described. At 160 muM, compound 8 caused 50% reduction in fibrin gamma-chain cross-linking and suppressed the polymerization of alpha chains in platelet-depleted human plasma clots. Fibrinolysis rates in response to tissue plasminogen activator were directly(More)
