This review describes the role of nuclear receptors in the regulation of genes involved in cholesterol transport and synthetic modulators of these receptors. Increasing the efflux of cholesterol from peripheral cells, such as lipid-laden macrophages, through a process called reverse cholesterol transport (RCT) requires HDL. Increasing the circulating levels(More)
Diabetes mellitus has been declared to be at an epidemic level by the World Health Organization. The syndrome is characterised as either Type I (insulin-dependent) or Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. Impaired glucose tolerance for extended periods of time results in serious complications such as kidney damage and impaired blood circulation(More)
A series of P1/P1' substituted cyclic urea analogues were prepared in an attempt to increase the intra-cellular antiviral potency of the nonsymmetrical 3-aminoindazoles DMP 850 and DMP 851. The effect of alkyl substitution of the P1/P1' residues on cellular antiviral potency, protein binding, resistance profile and pharmacokinetics are described.
A series of substituted spirobenzazepines was prepared and evaluated as V(1a) and V(2) dual vasopressin receptor antagonists. Compounds 7p and 7q have been shown to be not only potent inhibitors of vasopressin receptors, but also have exhibited an excellent overall pharmaceutical suitability profile.
We have continued to explore spirobenzazepines as vasopressin receptor antagonists to follow up on RWJ-339489 (2), which had advanced into preclinical development. Further structural modifications were pursued to find a suitable backup compound for human clinical studies. Thus, we identified carboxylic acid derivative 3 (RWJ-676070; JNJ-17158063) as a(More)
