2-Pyridinyl-3-(4-methylsulfonyl)phenylpyridines: selective and orally active cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors.


A series of novel 2-pyridinyl-3-(4-methylsulfonyl)phenylpyridines has been synthesized and evaluated with respect to their ability to inhibit the isozymes of cyclooxygenase, COX-1, and COX-2. Optimum COX-2 activity is observed by introduction of a substituent at C5 of the central pyridine. 5- Chloro-3-(4-methylsulfonyl)phenyl-2-(2-methyl-5-pyridinyl… (More)
