Further exploration of the cycloalkanol ethylamine scaffold, of which venlafaxine ( 1) is a member, was undertaken to develop novel and selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (NRIs) for evaluation in a variety of predictive animal models. These efforts led to the discovery of a piperazine-containing analogue, 17g (WY-46824), that exhibited potent(More)
Menopause-associated thermoregulatory dysfunction, including hot flushes and night sweats, is effectively treated by hormonal therapies that include estrogens. Evidence suggests that estrogen regulates serotonin 2A (5-HT(2A)) receptor expression and that 5-HT(2A) receptors are involved in thermoregulation. Therefore, the role of 5-HT(2A) receptors in(More)
The potency and selectivity of a series of 1-{(1S)-2-[amino]-1-[3-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl]ethyl}cyclohexanol analogues are described. These compounds were prepared to improve in vitro metabolic stability and achieve brain penetration. Compound 13 (WAY-260022, NRI-022) was found to be a potent inhibitor of norepinephrine reuptake and demonstrated excellent(More)
The SAR of a series of 1-amino-3-(1H-indol-1-yl)-3-phenylpropan-2-ols as monoamine reuptake inhibitors, with a goal to improve both potency toward inhibiting the norepinephrine transporter and selectivity over the serotonin transporter, is reported. The effect of specific substitution on both the 3-phenyl group and the indole moiety were explored. This(More)
