A new group of 3-alkyl-2-aryl-1,3-thiazinan-4-ones, possessing a methylsulfonyl pharmacophore, were synthesized and their biological activities were evaluated for cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitory activity. In vitro COX-1/COX-2 inhibition studies identified 3-benzyl-2-(4-methylsulfonylphenyl)-1,3-thiazinan-4-one (11a) as a potent (IC(50)=0.06 microM) and(More)
A group of 4-carboxyl quinoline derivatives possessing a methylsulfonyl COX-2 pharmacophore at the para position of the C-2 phenyl ring were designed and synthesized as selective COX-2 inhibitors. In vitro COX-1/COX-2 structure-activity relationships were determined by varying the substituents on the C-7 and C-8 quinoline ring. Among the 4-carboxyl(More)
A new group of 5,5-diarylhydantoin derivatives bearing a methylsulfonyl COX-2 pharmacophore at the para position of the C-5 phenyl ring were designed and synthesized as selective COX-2 inhibitors. In vitro COX-1/COX-2 inhibition structure-activity relationships identified 5-[4-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl]-5-phenyl-hydantoin (4) as a highly potent and selective(More)
A group of 1,3-diarylurea derivatives, possessing a methylsulfonyl pharmacophore at the para-position of the N-1 phenyl ring, in conjunction with a N-3 substituted-phenyl ring (4-F, 4-Cl, 4-Me, 4-OMe), were designed and synthesized for evaluation as selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. In vitro COX-1/COX-2 isozyme inhibition structure-activity(More)
People have taken the advantage of using herbs as an effective method for medical treatment since long times ago that can be attributed for their cheap prices and the belief of their being safer than equivalent chemical medicines. Industrial development and the ever-increasing exposure of environmental threatening materials especially heavy metals have(More)
A new series of 2-aryl, 3-benzyl-(1,3-oxazolidine or 1,3-thiazolidine)-4-ones, possessing a methylsulfonyl pharmacophore, were synthesized to evaluate their biological activities as selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. In vitro COX-1 and COX-2 isozyme inhibition studies were performed to acquire structure-activity relationship data with respect to(More)
Sulfonamides are the first effective chemotherapeutic agents used for several years to cure or prevent systemic bacterial infections. In addition, this agents showed anti-carbonic anhydrase and cause cell cycle perturbation in the G1 phase, disruption of microtubule assembly, suppression of the transcription activator Nf-Y, angiogenesis and matrix(More)
