3-Substituted imidazo[1,2-d][1,2,4]-thiadiazoles: a novel class of factor XIIIa inhibitors.

A new class of selective FXIIIa inhibitors with a bicyclic [1,2,4]-thiadiazole pharmacophore is described. At 160 muM, compound 8 caused 50% reduction in fibrin gamma-chain cross-linking and suppressed the polymerization of alpha chains in platelet-depleted human plasma clots. Fibrinolysis rates in response to tissue plasminogen activator were directly… CONTINUE READING
