Sulfonimidamides as Sulfonamides Bioisosteres: Rational Evaluation through Synthetic, in Vitro, and in Vivo Studies with γ-Secretase Inhibitors.

Summary of "Sulfonimidamides as Sulfonamides Bioisosteres: Rational Evaluation through Synthetic, in Vitro, and in Vivo Studies with γ-Secretase Inhibitors."

The proof of the pudding: A proof-of-concept study using γ-secretase inhibitors as a model has shown that sulfonimidamides act as bioisosteres for sulfonamides. Detailed in vitro and in vivo profiling reveal that the sulfonimidamide motif imparts desirable properties such as decreased lipophilicity and plasma protein binding, accompanied by increased solubility. Our data support a wider use of this unique functional group in the design of new pharmacologically active agents.
