We have designed a series of potent EP1 receptor antagonists. These antagonists are a series of 2-(1H-indazol-1-yl)-thiazoles in which the core structure was replaced with pyrazole-phenyl groups. In preliminary conscious rat cystometry experiments, two representative candidates, 2 and 22, increased bladder capacity. In particular, the increase using 22 was(More)
We describe a medicinal chemistry approach to generate a series of 2-(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)thiazole compounds that act as selective EP1 receptor antagonists. The obtained results suggest that compound 12 provides the best EP1 receptor antagonist activity and demonstrates good oral pharmacokinetics.
We previously discovered that indazole derivative 8 was a highly selective β3-adrenergic receptor (β3-AR) agonist, but it appeared to be metabolically unstable. To improve metabolic stability, further optimization of this scaffold was carried out. We focused on the sulfonamide moiety of this scaffold, which resulted in the discovery of compound 15 as a(More)
