A novel chemical class of potent chemoattractant receptor-homologous expressed on Th2 lymphocytes (CRTH2 or DP2) antagonists is reported. An initial and moderately potent spiro-indolinone compound ( 5) was found during a high-throughput screening campaign. Structure-activity relationship (SAR) investigation around the carboxylic acid group revealed that(More)
Antagonism of the CRTH2 receptor represents a very attractive target for a variety of allergic diseases. Most CRTH2 antagonists known to date possess a carboxylic acid moiety, which is essential for binding. However, potential acid metabolites O-acyl glucuronides might be linked to idiosynchratic toxicity in humans. In this communication, we describe a new(More)
New phenoxyacetic acid antagonists of CRTH2 are described. Following the discovery of a hit compound by a focused screening, high protein binding was identified as its main weakness. Optimization aimed at reducing serum protein binding led to the identification of several compounds that showed not only excellent affinities for the receptor (41 compounds(More)
A further case of humeral head necrosis occurring in the course of a bismuth encephalopathy is reported. There was no apparent direct effect due to the bismuth as the lesion was quite different from those observed during typical bismuth osteopathy. The region affected by the bone lesion, its appearance, and the progressive anatomical and clinical changes(More)
