Design, syntheses, biological evaluation, and docking studies of 2-substituted 5-methylsulfonyl-1-phenyl-1H-indoles: potent and selective in vitro cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors.


Four series of 5-methylsulfonyl-1-phenyl-1H-indole-2-carboxylic acid alkyl esters (family A), -2-carbonitriles (family B), -2-carboxamides (family C), and 2-benzoyl-5-methylsulfonyl-1-phenyl-1H-indoles (family D) were prepared and evaluated for their ability to inhibit purified cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1). Family D compounds have… (More)
