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 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)
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)
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)
