This letter describes the discovery of a novel series of tetrahydroisoquinoline (THIQ)-derived small molecules that potently inhibit both human T-cell migration and super-antigen induced T-cell activation through disruption of the binding of integrin LFA-1 to its receptor, ICAM-1. In addition to excellent in vitro potency, 6q shows good pharmacokinetic properties and its ethyl ester (6t) demonstrates good oral bioavailability in both mouse and rat. Either intravenous administration of 6q or oral administration of its ethyl ester (6t) produced a significant reduction of neutrophil migration in a thioglycollate-induced murine peritonitis model.

As demonstrated in preclinical animal models, the disruption of PI3Kδ expression or its activity leads to a decrease in inflammatory and immune responses. Therefore, inhibition of PI3Kδ may provide ...
Overexpression and somatic heterozygous mutations of EZH2, the catalytic subunit Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), are associated with several tumor types. EZH2 inhibitor, EPZ-6438 (Tazemetostat),...
Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors have been used as clinical agents to treat erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Herein, we detail the discovery of a novel series of ch...
Discovery of a novel series of orally bioavailable and CNS penetrant Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor (GLP-1R) non-competitive antagonists based on a 1,3-disubstituted-7-aryl-5,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)-5,8-dihydropyrimido4,5-dpyrimidine-2,4(1H,3H)-dione core.
A duplexed, functional multi-addition high throughput screen and subsequent optimization effort identified the first orally bioavailable and CNS penetrant glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) non...
We previously discovered that indazole derivative 8 was a highly selective β3-adrenergic receptor (β3-AR) agonist, but it appeared to be metabolically unstable. To improve metabolic stability, furth...

The purpose of this prospective clinical trial is to document the performance and clinical outcomes of Biomet Discovery Elbow.
A long-acting beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonist. It is a potent bronchodilator that may be administered orally or by aerosol inhalation.
Morphine derivatives of the methanobenzazocine family that act as potent analgesics.
A toxic compound, isolated from the Spanish fly or blistering beetle (Lytta (Cantharis) vesicatoria) and other insects. It is a potent and specific inhibitor of protein phosphatases 1 (PP1) and 2A (PP2A). This compound can produce severe skin inflammation, and is extremely toxic if ingested orally.
Derivative of noroxymorphone that is the N-cyclopropylmethyl congener of NALOXONE. It is a narcotic antagonist that is effective orally, longer lasting and more potent than naloxone, and has been proposed for the treatment of heroin addiction. The FDA has approved naltrexone for the treatment of alcohol dependence.
