Summary of "New pyrazole derivatives: Synthesis, anti-inflammatory activity, cycloxygenase inhibition assay and evaluation of mPGES."

New pyrazole derivatives 2-5 were synthesized and evaluated for their COX-1 and COX-2 inhibitory activity in vitro. All compounds showed good inhibitory activity at a nanomolar level and most compounds exhibited selectivity towards COX-2 inhibition. Compounds 2a, 3b, 4a, 5b and 5e exhibited IC towards COX-2 enzyme of 19.87, 39.43, 61.24, 38.73 and 39.14 nM, respectively. Furthermore, compounds 3b, 4a, 5b and 5e exhibited a selectivity index of 22.21, 14.35, 17.47 and 13.10, respectively. The most active compounds were further subjected to in vivo anti-inflammatory assay. The tested compounds showed better or comparable activity to celecoxib as positive control. In order to explore their binding mode and selectivity behaviour, molecular docking in the active site of COX-2 was carried out for these derivatives. Analysis of the docked poses of the compounds showed that they adopt similar conformations to the highly selective COX-2 inhibitor, SC-558. The docking pose of compound 3b was confirmed by molecular dynamics. All the tested compounds exhibited potent inhibitory effect on the production of PGE, in addition to their inhibition of COX-2 enzyme.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Anti-inflammatory agents that are not steroids. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They are used primarily in the treatment of chronic arthritic conditions and certain soft tissue disorders associated with pain and inflammation. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects. Certain NSAIDs also may inhibit lipoxygenase enzymes or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES or may modulate T-cell function. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p 1814-5)
