Optimization of a 7-azaindole-3-acetic acid CRTh2 receptor antagonist chemotype derived from high throughput screening furnished a highly selective compound NVP-QAV680 with low nM functional potency for inhibition of CRTh2 driven human eosinophil and Th2 lymphocyte activation in vitro. The molecule exhibited good oral bioavailability in the rat, combined(More)
Herein we describe the optimization of a series of PDE4 inhibitors, with special focus on solubility and pharamcokinetics, to clinical compound 2, 4-(8-(3-fluorophenyl)-1,7-naphthyridin-6-yl)transcyclohexanecarboxylic acid. Although compound 2 produces emesis in humans when given as a single dose, its exemplary pharmacokinetic properties enabled a novel(More)
The solubility-driven optimization of a series of 1,7-napthyridine phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitors is described. Directed structural changes resulted in increased aqueous solubility, enabling superior pharmacokinetic properties with retention of PDE4 inhibition. A range of potent and orally bioavailable compounds with good in vivo efficacy in animal models(More)
The optimisation of two series of 4-hydroxybenzothiazolone derived β2-adrenoceptor agonists, bearing α-substituted cyclopentyl and β-phenethyl amino-substituents, as inhaled long-acting bronchodilators is described. Analogues were selected for synthesis using a lipophilicity based hypothesis to achieve the targeted rapid onset of action in combination with(More)
