ABSTRACT: The bradykinin 1 (B1) receptor is upregulated during times of inflammation and is important for maintaining inflamed and chronic pain states. Blocking this receptor has been shown to reverse and/or ameliorate pain and inflammation in animal models. In this report, we describe a new class of B1 receptor antagonists that contain the piperidine acetic acid tetralin core. A structure-activity relationship for these analogs is described in this paper. The most potent compounds from this class have IC50s<20 nM in a B1 receptor functional assay. One of these compounds, 13g, shows modest oral bioavailability in rats.
