Two investigational compounds (FRM-1, (R)-7-fluoro-N-(quinuclidin-3-yl)benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide and FRM-2, (R)-7-cyano-N-(quinuclidin-3-yl)benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide) resided in rat brain longer than in systemic circulation. In Caco-2 directional transport studies, they both showed good intrinsic passive permeability but differed significantly(More)
A hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease is the presence of senile plaques in human brain primarily containing the amyloid peptides Aβ42 and Aβ40. Many drug discovery efforts have focused on decreasing the production of Aβ42 through γ-secretase inhibition. However, identification of γ-secretase inhibitors has also uncovered mechanism-based side effects. One(More)
Herein we describe the design, synthesis, and evaluation of a novel series of oxadiazine-based gamma secretase modulators obtained via isosteric amide replacement and critical consideration of conformational restriction. Oxadiazine lead 47 possesses good in vitro potency with excellent predicted CNS drug-like properties and desirable ADME/PK profile. This(More)
