The goal of this research is the development of tumor imaging and radiotherapeutic agents based on targeting of the integrin alpha(v)beta(3) (vitronectin receptor). Macrocyclic chelator DOTA has been conjugated to peptidomimetic vitronectin receptor antagonist SH066 to give TA138. TA138 and (89)Y-TA138 retain antagonist properties and high affinity for(More)
Antithrombotic agents that are inhibitors of factor XIa (FXIa) have the potential to demonstrate robust efficacy with a low bleeding risk profile. Herein, we describe a series of tetrahydroquinoline (THQ) derivatives as FXIa inhibitors. Compound 1 was identified as a potent and selective tool compound for proof of concept studies. It exhibited excellent(More)
OBJECTIVES Either venous or arterial thrombosis is a potentially life-threatening event and existing diagnostic modalities are inadequate to diagnose and to determine the morphology of the evolving thrombus. Thus development of a noninvasive imaging agent that can detect clot location remains a critical and unmet need in nuclear diagnostic medicine. The(More)
This study was undertaken to define the platelet glycoprotein alphaIIb beta3 integrin (GPII/IIIa) affinity, specificity, and oral antiplatelet efficacy of DMP 802, a small-molecule nonpeptide antiplatelet agent. Platelet GPIIb/IIIa integrin binding affinity and specificity for DMP 802 were determined by using binding and adhesion assays with cells from(More)
The disposition of XV459, a potent, selective GP IIb/IIIa antagonist, has been examined following intravenous administration of XP280, the benzenesulphonate salt, and 3H-SA202, the trifluroacetic acid salt, to male guinea pigs. A liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method was developed and validated for XV459 quantitation in guinea pig plasma(More)
Low molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) stimulate the release of endothelial tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI). An inhibitor of tissue factor-induced coagulation, TFPI may contribute to the efficacy of LMWHs. The release of TFPI may be affected by characteristics of LMWHs, such as molecular weight (MW) distribution. The authors measured plasma levels of(More)
Factor VIIa (FVIIa) inhibitors have shown strong antithrombotic efficacy in preclinical thrombosis models with limited bleeding liabilities. Discovery of potent, orally active FVIIa inhibitors has been largely unsuccessful due to the requirement of a basic P1 group to interact with Asp189 in the S1 binding pocket, limiting their membrane permeability. We(More)
Recent advances in the development of i.v. platelet glycoprotein alphaIIb/beta3 integrin (GPIIb/IIIa) antagonists led to the development of either a class of small-molecular-weight antagonists with a short to ultra-short duration of antiplatelet effects (Integrelin, Tirofiban, DMP728) or a very long-acting antagonist (ReoPro). Thus the present study was(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the role of platelet glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptors in the modulation of plasminogen activator type-1 (PAI-1) release from human platelets as compared to other platelet functions. To address this issue, the effect of various agonists on human platelet aggregation, [125I]fibrinogen binding and the release of PAI-1(More)
A multidisciplinary, fragment-based screening approach involving protein ensemble docking and biochemical and NMR assays is described. This approach led to the discovery of several structurally diverse, neutral surrogates for cationic factor VIIa P1 groups, which are generally associated with poor pharmacokinetic (PK) properties. Among the novel factor VIIa(More)
