Drugs acting on beta(1)- and beta(2)-adrenergic receptors are widely used for the clinical management of a large number of cardiovascular and respiratory pathologies. In the last decade, the discovery of the third subtype of beta receptors, the beta(3)-adrenoceptor, gave a further pharmacological target for the development of new selective drugs. Initially,(More)
On the basis of docking studies carried out using the recently published cannabinoid receptor models,35 new 1,8-naphthyridin-4(1H)-on-3-carboxamide and quinolin-4(1H)-on-3-carboxamide derivatives were designed, synthesized, and tested for their affinities toward the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors. Compound 10, which presented p-fluorobenzyl and(More)
Cannabinoid receptors have been studied extensively in view of their potential functional role in several physiological and pathological processes. For this reason, the search for new potent, selective ligands for subtype CB receptors, CB(1) and CB(2), is still of great importance, in order to investigate their role in various physiological functions. The(More)
A new series of 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives (29-44 and 46-52) bearing various substituents in different positions on the heterocyclic nucleus were synthesized in order to analyze the effects produced on the affinity toward the bovine adenosine receptors. These derivatives represent an extension of our previous work on this class of compounds with high(More)
A series of 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives bearing various substituents in position 3, 4, and 7 of the heterocyclic nucleus have been synthesized and evaluated for their affinity at the bovine and human adenosine receptors. The new compounds were found to lack the affinity toward A(1)AR, whereas many of them are able to acquire an interesting affinity and(More)
A series of 3- or 4-phenyl-1,8-naphthyridine derivatives variously substituted in the positions 2, 6 and 7 were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro evaluation for their antimycobacterial activity as part of a TAACF TB screening program under the direction of the US National Institute of Health, NIAID division. Several compounds showed an interesting(More)
