Target selection is a critical step in the majority of modern drug discovery programs. The viability of a drug target depends on two components: biological relevance and chemical tractability. The concept of druggability was introduced to describe the second component, and it is defined as the ability of a target to bind a drug-like molecule with a(More)
The design and synthesis of highly potent, selective orally bioavailable inhibitors of PDE10A is reported. Starting with an active compound of modest potency from a small focused screen, we were able to evolve this series to a lead molecule with high potency and selectivity versus other PDEs using structure-based design. A systematic refinement of ADME(More)
