Discovery of novel (S)-alpha-phenyl-gamma-amino butanamide containing CCR5 antagonists via functionality inversion approach.

By using functionality inversion approach, we identified a new scaffold containing (S)-alpha-phenyl-gamma-amino butanamide as CCR5 antagonists derived from the 1,3-propanediamine carboxamide pharmacophore protocol. The (2S)-2-phenyl-4-(8-aza-bicyclo[3.2.1]octan-8-yl)-butanamide derivatives display significantly high potency to antagonize CCR5 receptor with… CONTINUE READING
