The discovery and optimization of piperidin-4-yl-urea derivatives as MCH-R1 antagonists is herein described. Previous work around the piperidin-4-yl-amides led to the discovery of potent MCH-R1 antagonists. However, high affinity towards the hERG potassium channel proved to be an issue. Different strategies to increase hERG selectivity were implemented and(More)
A series of 1,3-disubstituted-1H-pyrrole-based antagonists of the human Melanin-Concentrating Hormone Receptor 1 (h-MCH-R1) are reported. High-throughput screening of the AstraZeneca compound collection yielded 1, a hit with moderate affinity towards MCH-R1. Subsequent structural manipulations and SAR analysis served to rationalize potency requirements, and(More)
Herein, we disclose the discovery and optimization of 2-piperidin-4-yl-acetamide derivatives as MCH-R1 antagonists. Structural investigation of piperidin-4-yl-amide and piperidin-4-yl-ureas identified 2-piperidin-4-yl-acetamide-based MCH-R1 antagonists with outstanding in vivo efficacy but flawed with high affinity towards the hERG potassium channel. While(More)
