2,3-Dihydro-1,3-dioxo-1H-isoindole-5-carboxylic acid derivatives: a novel class of small molecule heparanase inhibitors.

A novel class of 2,3-dihydro-1,3-dioxo-1H-isoindole-5-carboxylic acids are described as inhibitors of the endo-beta-glucuronidase heparanase. Several of the compounds, for example, 2-[4-propylamino-5-[5-(4-chloro)phenyl-benzoxazol-2-yl]phenyl]-2,3-dihydro-1,3-dioxo-1H-isoindole-5-carboxylic acid (9c), display potent heparanase inhibitory activity (IC(50… CONTINUE READING
